  • Serial connection

    About to purchase homeseer for use with my OPII. What are the distance limitations on the serial connection from PC running homeseer back to OPII panel? TIA

    I believe the IEEE distance limitation using low cap cable is 50' on RS232. If it's still a problem you can buy pretty cheap RS232 repeaters to get it up to around 150'.

      Yes, engineering specification says 50', but many people run up to 100' without any problems. Not to mean that you can, but more than 50' should still be possible and may be enough for your application. If not, then the line drivers George mentioned will definitely get you there.
