'[EE:] Noisy serial cable'

I have found that the serial port cable, connected to my MPU board, is creating some noise on my ADC readings.

Any tips on reducing this noise?

Thanks

John

Probably, all you need to induce this noise is a cliplead between the two
system grounds.
If so, there's current flowing between the two systems.

Years ago, I was working on a telemetry system at a broadcast transmitter
site. The equipment was in a rack beside the 5kW AM transmitter. The
sample from the transmitter was ground referenced. I put a clip lead
between the ground side of the sample and the rack cabinet the telemetry
equipment was in. The clip lead melted....

I had a similar experience with shielded RS-485 in a grocery store.
Plugged the cable into a concentrator, and the cable started getting hot.
Turned out there was about 6V between the remote gnd and the local one.
Lots of current available though.

You should really consider measuring the voltage difference before
correcting it...  :-)

My electronics teacher would, every so often, disconnect the cable from
the TV in hte classroom and measure the ground to ground voltage and
current.  More than once he measured enough of a difference to put out a
memo about teachers clipping off the ground terminal of extension cords,
then plugging them in backwards so the neutral (which some TV sets would
couple to chassis ground, and then couple to the cable system ground)
was hot, and hot neutral.

Cable company doesn't like it either...
