I just found this post from Rusty in 2017 about 28mbps @ 1000m and was wondering if more testing had been done unspooled in water? Did the performance decrease while transitioning from Rev1 to Rev3 tether?
Was trying to order the max slim for the big spool (540m) and this is what BR sales came back with…
“We can sell the slim tether at longer lengths, but we have communication issues using our Fathom interface boards. If you have a different method for communication, then you should not see any issues.”
“The home plug spec is not accurate for this type of tether construction. 200m is the reliable maximum for slim and 300m is the reliable maximum for standard tether. Bandwidth drops to unusable levels above these lengths.”
“Our engineers think it’s a combination of impedance, capacitance, and resistance that determines the bandwidth capability of a tether. Additional shielding will not help in this case.”
Can anyone provide some clarity on their real world experiences using either slim or standard at 500m+?
Anyone know why the standard may be 1/3 better?
