  • Very long cable for OminMic

    Hello everyone.

    I needed to use the OmniMic 60 feet from my lab desktop PC.

    I found that a USB extender works perfectly. (PE sells these. However I purchased the IO Gear GUCE51 at Fry's.)

    Basically, the connection scheme is this:
    OminMic cable -> USB transmitter -> Cat5e/Cat6 cable -> USB receiver -> PC_USB-port

    In my case, I used a 100-foot Cat6 cable. Note that a regular Cat5 cable did not work, as evidenced by the OM blue LED not lighting. So you must use Cat5e or Cat6 cable only.

    my mcm catalog has one the will work up to 1000 for less than $20. sure would making measurements outside easier.
