Hi and thank you for your post.

If you do a search on serial port extenders there are numerous companies that provide a solution, we have not tried any of them and as such cannot say if they will or won't work. If you contact the vendor they may be able to offer you a "sale or return", so you can trial the product.

Let me know how you get on.

Kind regards

Please can you let me know what is the maximum recommended distance I can go with ADC-16 data logger which is connected to a strain gauge. That is; the maximum distance between strain gauge and the data logger

HI,

We provide a 1 meter cable and have not tested it on longer cables as I said before depending on your distance you may wish to invest in a serial port extender.

Kind regards
