This LAN Cable Extension Kit is a plug-and-play cable extension kit for the Raspberry Pi & Official Camera Module, which allows you to use the camera module many meters away (up to 20m**) from the Raspberry Pi - without any additional software or code with an RJ45 LAN cable!

Not compatible with the Raspberry Pi 5 (although you may be able to use this adapter cable to convert it)

Update: we now stock a 15m CAT6A RJ45 cable that has been tested by THine's engineers in Tokyo, Japan, taking the guesswork out of finding a compatible cable with the appropriate insertion loss rating!

The extension capability is driven by THine’s V-by-One® HS technology whose configuration is pre-tuned for easy plug-and-play installation. There is no need to software set-up or code - it works as if the Camera were directly connected to the Pi.

The kit is compatible with the Raspberry Pi Camera Module, HQ Camera/M12 version, and defined modes of the original V1 (1.3) Raspberry Pi Camera Module (see datasheet for compatibility).

The kit includes everything you need, including a 2 metre LAN cable. Please ensure you fully read the Quick Start Guide and Datasheet before using!

**Please read the datasheet for a list of tested cables that work with the kit. Due to the wildly varying quality and specification of Cat5E cables on the market, we can't guarantee the quality or performance of this product if you use a cable not listed in the datasheet. We recommend the 15m cable we stock which has been tested by THine's engineers in Tokyo, Japan.
