How much maximum USB cable length I can use with Humidiprobe

Postby Guest » Fri Dec 05, 2008 1:27 pm

I would like to purchase Humidiprobe data logger for temperature and humidity monitoring. I would like to connect it to a PC with a USB cable. But the distance between the PC and Humidiprobe is nearly 15 meters. Can I use it with that length of USB cable. otherwise can you suggest me a solution. I cannot reduce the length less than 15 meters between the probe and PC.

Hi Raghav,

The USB spec is 5meters for a USB cable. If you want to extend it beyond this distance there are other solutions out there that could help. For example you can get a USB to ethernet converter that can extend the length. We have done some tests on some products please have a look at the following link for the article:
