Long cable distances drobo 5c?
Hello,
what cables are you guys using for distances over 5m?

I tried the Corning 3Optical but it doesnt work reliably with the drobo 5c.

Thanks

RE: Long cable distances drobo 5c?
hi abcd, i had a look on there faqs page and the last current usb question about using it for longer distances mentioned mixing some cables together. if you can have a look here in case not already seen, does the info they pasted help you at all?
https://www.corning.com/optical-cables-b...https://www.corning.com/optical-cables-by-corning/worldwide/en/help

also, it seems that their device currently is geared towards usb devices that are self powered, and you might have already done this though can i check if you had been powering up the drobo normaly, via its own psu when you tried your tests?

btw how long are you trying to reach?

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
