extending usb lead on humidiprobe

Post by allanrichings » Thu Apr 12, 2007 8:33 am

I need to extend the usb cable on the humidiprobe, when plugged in directly it works fine but when I introduce an extension cable it does nothing ( like it can't see the probe ) is there a special lead for this or some other way to get over this problem.
thanks. Allan

Hi and thank you for your post.

The maximum length of the USB cable is 5 meters, the cable we supply is 4.5 meters long. Any loner and you would need a USB hub, alternatively there are manufacturers who make USB to Ethernet cables that can run for significantly longer lengths.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
