Q4.What is the maximum cable length allowed for Single Ended (or Unbalanced) signaling system used by SCSI?

A. 3m

B. 12m

C. 25m

D. 6m

Correct Answer: D


Single-ended devices are more prone to picking up interference and noise so the cable length is set at a limit - 6 meters or approximately 20 feet.
Cable lengths used by SCSI devices are:
Single Ended (or un balanced) electronic signaling: 6 m 0r 20ft (apx.)
Differential signaling (HVD-High Voltage Differential): 25 m or 82 ft (apx.)
Differential signaling (LVD - Low Voltage Differential): 12 m
