Topic: Maximum cable length between Arduino board and a sensor (Read 67 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi! What's the maximum cable length between Arduino board and sensor, for example, HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor?
What is the best cable type for this connection?

This depends on the particular sensor.

What length are you wondering about? With what sensor?

Sensors that need a "lot" of current will need a different cable than those needing little current.

If you want to run a long cable in Cat5e, with 5v to the sensor, you may have difficulty.
