Powered usb help

Postby craig a » Sun Sep 08, 2019 7:08 pm

Just a quick question, I think my imaging rig is struggling with the 11 m distance the power is running from the lappy to the gear particularly the guide camera, from the lappy runs a 10m usb active repeater to a non powered usb hub then another 2x1m usb cables coming off that one to the guide cam and one to the main imaging cam, the dslr has its own power supply in the form of a power tank but the guide cam is getting its power from the lappy just over 11m away, I was having erratic guiding behaviour last night and I’m wondering if it’s a power issue so ordered a powered usb hub I’m not very technical and wondering if I’ve made the correct choice if anyone can let me know if it will work or not
