usb over fiber optic cable Answered
My house was once part of a business that was connected to neighboring structures via fiber optics for Internet. I want to put in a security system with some usb cameras and of course we know what those limits are. I have successfully made 25' usb/cat5 cables using this site... they work great but I need 50 - 60'. I was wondering if it was possible to utilize these fiber cables for the data side of the usb and somehow power it by other sources? I know a little about fiber like putting in connectors and such and I do have 2 transceivers. I can make rj45/usb connectors for the tranceiver ends but I'm just not sure of the details or even if I'm barking up the right tree. I'm not sure where the power fits in either.
Any of you geniuses know how I could do this?
