Tobii Eye Tracker 4C and Tobii Eye Tracker 5 both come with an integrated USB 2.0 cord which is 80 cm long and placed on the right side of the tracker.
If your gaming computer is placed on the floor or is placed far away from your screen, the cable might not be long enough to reach your USB ports. We do include a 1m long extension cable with your tracker, but if you are experiencing connection issues using it or the extension cable is not long enough, we recommend using an externally powered USB hub.
If you don't want to use a hub then you could try an active extension cable. Unfortunately, we haven't tested any specific ones that we can recommend so we can therefore not guarantee that the active extension cable you have or will get will work on your computer. Please don't use any non-active extension cables as this might result in connection issues.
We have tested two Powered USB 2.0 Hubs that we can recommend. But any modern hubs should be efficient and provide enough power.
