I’ve been thinking of getting the camera for one of my lasers, the only thing that has stopped me so far is connecting it to my computer. The laser is only around four foot from my computer in the workshop, but on the opposite wall, so the usb cable I use is around 10 metres and goes all the way around the room to the laser, that works fine. Most of the stuff I have connected through to the computer goes through a powered hub, but the five lasers all like a direct connection into the PC.
I was thinking of putting a small powered hub next to the laser and connecting the laser and camera this way, but I’m not sure whether the laser would like that, the alternative is to run another 10 metres cable just for the camera. Does anyone know if the camera will work okay over that length of cable?
