bus length

The network cable length between the two termination resistors. The bus length of CAN networks is limited by the used transmission rate. At 1 Mbit/s the maximum length is theoretically 40 m. When using lower transmission rates, longer bus lines may be used: at 50 kbit/s a length of 1 km is possible.
