Default poop on usb cables

Had asked this within another post (with no results) so here goes...Has anyone used those usb cable extenders, if so is that a viable option to get beyond the 16' limit.. if so how far does that get you..I've heard of other people having problems, and they had to connect directly to the server..Just wondering what thats all about..

I can't speak for a DTG printer but for large Epson based printer I have much better luck using USB to cat5 adapters. I have a USB about 75' on a epson 4800.

Got to do with drop in signal. USB ports don't produce huge size signals.

Shorter the better. It is same as electric but worse because we are playing with lower voltage signal. But again, if it works be it with knowing shorter>longer. Not like your wish.
I like 4-5'.
Cheers! Beers ar on me always.

Here's the same answer that I gave you in the other thread when you asked, I just copied and pasted it to here....

You asked,
Well now back to the question I was after, the usb cable length do those extenders really get you off the max. length of 16'.. I've heard others that had problems with the way the cable runs through the bed/ stand then it connects to the server, which they ellimaned and connected directly to the server bypassing the other way.. Oh which by the way I don't know anything about..

Loretta answered...I have heard that you lose detail with longer cables and the longer the cable the more detail you use.. and that's just for regular printers for letters and such. Not sure what one would lose with artwork. I work in the middle of a pile of printers, each with a 6', 8', or 10' cord. I've tried to stay at or below 10' just for that reason.

I clarified with...
You don't loose detail you loose signal strength. When this happens your printer stops printing and acts wierd. The longer the cable the more signal gets lost. You should try to use as short of a cable as possible. Several people have had to plug the usb cable directly into the back of the printer unit bypassing the input jack in the transport table. I have had to do this. I've tried using a shorter cable, bought new cables on several occasions until I finally just plugged directly from the computer to the back of the printer. Not more problems.

Now I just added...
Maybe I just didn't say it plainly, No... usb extenders don't work, it just makes a longer usb cable. Because it's an extender doesn't mean it does anything that lets you get a longer cable with no problems, it's just like having a long cable.
I hope this helps.

Though I don't have a DTG to play with, I have used active USB extenders with success on non-network printers. I got them from Monoprice.

Well....... I stand corrected! I've never heard of a "ACTIVE" USB extension cable.

I have a 20ft Gold Plated USB cable that cost me like $100 and I have yet to have any issues. I plugged mine directly into the back of the printer.

That's what the USB to cat 5 cables are active. The side that pugs into the PC some have 2 USB ends and some have a jack that plugs into AC. I should have clarified these are the best ones. I have a epson 4800 with a 75' cord.

Default poop on usb cables

Here's the extender we run all over the place from a regular printer for invoices, an Epson photo 1400, and for a GX-24 with no problems. It's a 15 footer. I think the key is to have the powered extender (it lights up when plugged in).
