Product Highlights
  • SuperSpeed USB 3.0
  • Tethering Cable

The 16' TetherPro USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable (Hi-Visibility Orange) from Tether Tools is a tethering cable which offers fast and reliable transfer of images and data. The TetherPro Premium SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable is an active extension device that allows for longer tethering distances without worrying about signal errors or corrupt data transfers.

Up to four active USB extensions and one passive 15' (4.57 m) USB can be daisy-chained together for a total of 80' (24.38 m), thus avoiding any drop-off in signals.

With the TetherPro USB 3.0 Extension Cable, signals and data transfers going in and out of the cable are buffered to ensure consistent signal quality, meeting USB's highest electrical and timing specifications.

The set-up is simple, you just need to plug the male end of the Active Extension Cable into your computer and then plug your camera or other device's USB cable into the female end of this Extension Cable so the repeater is closest to the device and not the computer. For longer distances, you can simply insert additional Active Extension increments into the chain to achieve the needed distance.

            Comments about 16' TetherPro USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable (Hi-Visibility Orange):

            My computers are in one room and all the hard drives, servers, etc., are in another room. I wanted a high speed cable to connect a USB 3 HDD dock to an iMac. Researching, I found that an 'active' cable was key to getting a reliable high speed connection to devices more than a few meters away.

            I haven't tried any other brands, but this cable has worked great. Speeds from a Transcend card reader are as fast as if the reader is connected directly to the Mac. The female end is a little bulky, but it's hidden away. Cable seems well made and sturdy while still being flexible enough to route easily.

                      I got this to replace some lost tether cables. I've always used the iogear USB 2.0 powered extension as a tether cable. I have a new MBP with USB 3.0 and thought I'd try this out. I haven't had the opportunity to see how well it works for a 3.0 USB device yet. Seems OK, it's a bit more expensive than other so I'll see how well it holds up.

                              Excellent transfer speed - quality construction - choose this one (the active extension cable) to tether a range of camera brands and types using the proprietary tether cable that came with the camera plugged in to this - the TT Active extension cable - and then the TT into your computer.

                              Backwards compatible with USB2 - this USB3 is fast and well made.

                                  I have a Blue Snowball USB condenser mic that I move around alot to record various things (vocals, drums, etc...) and my existing usb cables weren't long enough.for a while i was getting by with putting a powered hub in between, but i felt like the hub was adding to my latency a bit -- felt like i was experiencing more drop outs and what-not. so now i've been using this active cable and it works great... seems a little pricey for what it is, but it works!
