Tether Tools 16' (4.88 m) TetherPro USB 2.0 Active Extension Cable (Black)

You Pay: $37.95
Product Highlights
  • Simple Set-Up
  • Avoids Drop-Off in Signals
  • Designed as per USB Specifications

The 16' (4.88 m) TetherPro USB 2.0 Active Extension Cable (Black) from Tether Tools allows longer tethering distances without worrying about signal errors or corrupt data transfers. With this 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.

Passive cables over 16' (4.88 m) in length, for the purpose of data transmission, may result in signal errors or noise and are not recommended. Up to four active USB extensions and one passive 15' (4.57 m) USB can be daisy chained, thus avoiding any drop-off in signals.

For longer distances, you can simply insert additional active extension increments into the chain to achieve the needed distance.

The set-up is simple, just plug the male end of the cable into the computer and then plug your camera or other device's USB cable into the female end of this cable so the repeater is closest to the device and not the computer.
Drop-off in signals can be avoided by daisy chaining up to four active USB extensions and one passive 15' (4.57 m) USB together.
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.

          Comments about Tether Tools 16' (4.88 m) TetherPro USB 2.0 Active Extension Cable (Black):

          I'm using this active extension with the miniB to USB cable that comes for default with my camera to shot tether; also this way I don't have to mess with different miniB connector types (5 pin /8 pin) from my other cameras brands.

          For my studio the 16' works great, maybe in the future I'd need more length but that wouldn't be a problem as I can add another active extension to avoid signal errors.

          Great product for my workflow!
