Benefits of Using Passive Copper Cables
There are several benefits of using passive copper cables for data transfer, such as the 470-AAVR Dell QSFP+ to QSFP+ 40GBE 1 meter passive copper direct attach cable.
- Cost-effective: Passive copper cables are generally less expensive than active optical cables, making them a cost-effective option for data transfer.
- Low power consumption: Passive copper cables do not require power to operate, which reduces the overall power consumption of the system.
- High performance: Passive copper cables offer high data transfer rates, making them suitable for high-bandwidth applications such as 40GBE.
- Durable: Passive copper cables are typically more durable than active optical cables, which can be sensitive to temperature and humidity changes.
- Easy to install and maintain: Passive copper cables are easy to install and maintain, making them a convenient option for data transfer.
- Direct attach cables are designed to connect directly to the QSFP+ module, which eliminates the need for a separate transceiver and enables a more cost-effective and power-efficient solution.
- They are typically used in short-distance applications such as in data centers and high-performance computing environments where high data transfer rates are required over short distances.
Installation and Setup of the Cable
Installation and setup of the 470-AAVR Dell Qsfp+ to Qsfp+ 40gbe 1 Meter Passive Copper Direct Attach Cable involves the following steps:
- Unpack the cable and ensure that it is in good condition.
- Connect one end of the cable to the Qsfp+ port on one device, such as a switch or server, and the other end to the Qsfp+ port on the second device.
- Check the connections to ensure that they are secure and properly aligned.
- Power on both devices and wait for them to fully boot up.
- Check the link status to ensure that the devices are communicating properly.
- Configure the devices to use the 40gbe speed and make sure that the link is operational.
- Test the cable by transferring data between the devices to ensure that it is functioning properly.
It is important to note that this cable is passive, meaning it does not have an active component to boost the signal, so it should only be used over short distances. The cable is also copper based which is considered best for short distance communication .
Performance and Reliability
The Dell 470-AAVR QSFP+ to QSFP+ 40Gbe 1 meter passive copper direct attach cable offers high performance and reliability for data transfer and connectivity.
- The cable supports a data transfer rate of 40 Gbps, which is ideal for high-speed data transfer and streaming applications.
- The cable is designed with high-quality copper to ensure low attenuation and minimal signal loss, resulting in faster data transfer speeds and less latency.
- The direct attach design eliminates the need for an optical transceiver, reducing costs and providing a more cost-effective solution.
- The cable is made with robust construction and high-quality materials, ensuring that it is built to last and can withstand the demands of high-performance data transfer.
- The passive design eliminates the need for power, making the cable more reliable and less prone to failure.
- The cable is also compliant with industry standards, ensuring that it is compatible with a wide range of devices and systems.

Cables - Direct Attach Cable
Direct Attach Cable, also known as the DAC cable, connects the equipment and peripherals in a data network. All the active networking equipment, including the data storage devices, switches, routers, servers, and more, will be connected and synched using the DAC cables. As far as the usage is concerned, these direct attached copper cables are getting fame in the data storage centers and the industry sector and server rooms: the reason being the cost-effective, efficient, and easier way to form the connection.
Direct Attach Copper Cables Are Terminated with Modules:
DAC cables are terminated from the manufacturer with the modules, which can easily connect the active peripheral equipment and secure an electrical connection. These modules are factory terminated and cannot be removed from the DAC cables afterward. Hence these wires possess a fixed length.
There are plenty of types and models available for the direct attach cables, including the direct, breakout, active and passive. As mentioned in the name, the direct cable can form a direct stable connection among the two peripherals, while breakout can connect one port with the four others. On the other hand, an active DAC cable will transmit signals to a little longer distance than the passive ones.
We, at ALLHDD, have got you all the range DAC cables for you to shop from! Choose from the following sub-categories: 0.5 Meter, 1 Meter, 16.4 Feet, 2 Meter, 4xC-13 Attached, 5 Meters, SFP+, 0.65 Meter, 10 Feet, 10 Meters, and 3 Meter.
DAC cables can follow longer paths:
Many of you might be wondering if the direct attach cable can transmit the data up to 10 meters or more! Yes, these cables can transfer the data to a more extended range depending on the data rate. The data rate is inversely proportional to the transmit range- the more the data rate, the less will be the range!
Direct Attach Data Cables are cost-effective!
DAC cables are more cost-effective as compared to the other ones. Using the two optical transceivers and fiber cable will not generate similar results as these DAC cables would!
Not only are these cost-effective and can cover long range but are reliable as well! As already mentioned, the DAC cables are factory terminated with a module that plugs into the networking equipment and generates a physical connection. Apart from the secure connection, the 26 to 28 AWG Copper material makes them rugged. Therefore, surviving through the damage and cracks, DAC cables are a way to connect peripherals swiftly. You can choose from the following options 7 Meter, ProCurve, 0.65M, 1.2 Meter, 20 Meter and 30 Meter and also claim a 2.5% discount!
