Premium quality USB 2.0 extension cable, available in 5, 9.7, 15m or 20m lengths, is an active extension device. Active extension cables allow for longer tethering distances without worrying about signal errors or corrupt data transfers. Available in High Visibility Orange or Black.
With an active USB device, signals and data transfers going in and out of the extension cable are buffered to ensure consistent signal quality, meeting USBs highest electrical and timing specifications.
Passive cables over 5m in length, for the purpose of data transmission, may result in signal errors and/or noise and are not recommended. Up to 4 active USB extensions and 1 passive 4.6m USB can be daisy chained together for a total of 24m before any drop off in signal or quality is detected.
Set up is simple, just plug the male end of the 5m Active Extension into your computer and then plug your camera or other devices USB cable into the female end of this extension cable so the repeater is closest to the device, not the computer. For longer distances simply insert additional 5m active extension increments into the chain to achieve the needed distance.
Be sure to consult your equipment manufacturers specifications to ensure correct cable type and proper connections.
