The I/O Expansion Boards are designed to be attached directly attached to the CueServer, however, depending on your requirements, you can either make or purchase an extension cable to remotely mount the I/O Expansion Board some distance away from a Mini CueServer.
Option 1: Purchase an "off the shelf" extension cable:
A DB-44 extension cable is not a very common item, so not many manufacturers make them. However, we have found a supplier that stocks exactly the cable you need. It's L-Com, and here's a link to the page on their site that lists the various lengths that they have available:
There may be other vendors with similar cables available. We'd be happy to add additional links here if you notify us of any suitable cables available on the market.
Option 2: Make your own cable:
If you need only a subset of all of the conductors wired to the external I/O Expansion board, another option may be to make your own cable.
With both a Male and Female "solder-cup" type loose DB-44 connector ends, a pair of connector hoods and some cable, you can fabricate your own cable with a little bit of soldering. The wiring should be made to the necessary conductors using straight-through (1-to-1) connections. Typically, CAT5 cable would be sufficient for most cables of this type.
Contact our Technical Support department if you need part number recommendations for the connector ends and other parts.
