16ft 5M USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension / Repeater Cable (Kinect & PS3 Move Compatible Extension) - Gray
The USB 2.0 Extension Cable is not a passive cable. It is an active device. The USB signals Going in and out of the extension cable are buffered to assure signal quality and the meeting of the USB's electrical and timing spec. Using passive cables for the purpose of extension Will result in signal errors and is not recommended.
Plug the male side into your computer and then plug your device's usb cable into the female end of this extension cable. So the repeater goes closer to your device, not the computer.
USB extension cable allows an USB device to have its cable length extended 16ft. The USB extension cable acts as a USB hub and buffers all downstream and upstream data traffic. High spped, full-speed and low-speed devices will function equally well with the USB extension cable.
Can be used with many types of USB devices including the Xbox Kinect and the Eye of the PS3 Move!*
* Please note that the Kinect requires more power than traditional USB ports are capable of providing. In order to prevent damage to equipment, Microsoft has designed the Kinect with a proprietary connector. If your Kinect did not come with a USB/Power adapter, you must purchase one from Microsoft before you can plug in this extension cable.
For Kinect Users: You can use this cable to connect the USB version of the Kinect only. It is not compatible with the proprietary Kinect connector.
