   Long USB cable issue with My Doc Cam


Is there a way to extend my USB cable so that my document camera can be set up away from my computer?


USB cables are limited in length due to their electrical design. However, one is able to get around this limitation by spanning the distance with CAT5 (Ethernet) cable. One can use a USB to CAT5 adapter to connect the USB cable and computer to the CAT5 cable. Be sure though to purchase two adapters as one will be needed for the document camera side and the other will be needed for the computer side.

for more information about USB can be found at the following Web site:
