PPM loses contact if not on short cable

Post by ozastro »

My PPM works fine if connected directly to my computer, giving power readings, temp, etc, but only on the short cable supplied.

If I connect it through a USB hub the software cannot find it.

As the point (for me) was to minimise the cables going to the scope, I'd like to monitor the power and environment from a comfortable distance via powered 5m USB cable and a hub at the scope.

Is this a problem?

Unfortunately it is. USB3 max cable length is 3meters.
