aboutGOLF designs and manufactures intelligent and authentic golf simulators that are customized for their client’s environment, and often that means extending high-speed and high-bandwidth signals beyond maximum specification distances.
USB, in particular, was a recurrent problem. SuperSpeed 3.0 signals are required for camera video transmission, but USB is notoriously difficult to integrate due to a 5m (16 ft) maximum cable specification. Many simulator integrations require longer cable runs and custom cable paths, especially when considering the space and range of motion requirements for users.
To solve this challenge, aboutGOLF leveraged TechLogix and their MOFO™ line of fiber-based USB cables. MOFO™ cables extend USB, HDMI and DisplayPort signals up to 50m (165 ft) using a standard fiber optic core.
Simulator customers demand the most realistic golf experience possible and aboutGOLF has very high standards for the components they use in every build: MOFO™ cables deliver signal performance and transmission distance thanks to their fiber optic construction. Plus, unlike other cables which use non-standard and lower graded fiber, MOFO™ cables support re-termination and upgrading in the field using standard fiber optic tools and connectors. A SuperSpeed USB cable today can be re-deployed as a network cable tomorrow.
“aboutGOLF prides itself on offering the very best in entertainment and golf simulation to our customers. Because each of our installations is custom to the client’s layout, we need a USB cable vendor who can provide us with an array of distances while retaining the highest quality connection. We’re happy to have found a solution in TechLogix,” said Megan Boze, VP of Customer Operations at aboutGOLF.
