Zivid One+ cameras come with 5 m copper USB 3.0 cables. Zivid also provides USB 3.0 cables in 10 m and 25 m options as active optical extenders. For more information visit


Use only Zivid approved cables and extenders. Ensure that all connections are screwed tightly in. Using a direct cable from the PC to the Zivid camera works better than connecting the camera via a USB hub.

Longer USB copper cables are known to be susceptible to data transfer errors if poorly connected. For this reason, Zivid strongly recommends that the cables are carefully checked before use or if run time errors occur. It is also strongly recommended to tighten the M2 Jack screws on the camera side with a screwdriver when setting up the camera. The USB connector needs to be screwed in completely to ensure the watertight IP rating of the camera.

Use the extenders only together with the provided short blue cable, displayed in the image above. Do not use optical extenders with any other cables, including standard Zivid 5 m copper cables.
Do not install the optical extension cables (specifically the bulky grey connector) in a cable enclosure or a sleeve. This may cause overheating and thus connection issues.
