Can you splice a hardline cable that goes to a message board

Question

  • Can you splice signal wire/cable to a message board.
  • Computer and signal converter are being moved, can the signal wire/cable be spliced to the new location?

Environment

  • Galaxy Display
  • Serial Cable
  • Ethernet Cable
  • Fiber Optic Cable

Answer/Steps

  • It is recommended to have a continuous run of signal wire up to a maximum distance of 1000 feet.  Signal wire may be spliced but may reduce the distance signal will run.
    • If splicing is done, solder is the best way to splice signal wire together and ensure the connection is insulated (heat shrink or taped).
