This is the kind of cable you want to use if your I-CubeX cables need a little slack. Perfect for sensors with a single output. Comes with two pieces of heatshrink to secure the connectors together (see application notes below). Longer versions of this cable are ExtendCable-05 and ExtendCable-10.
For binary actuators modify the ExtendCable-01 (see application notes below) or use ExtendCableD-01 or ExtendCableD-10. For sensors with two outputs, use ExtendCable2D-01 and for sensors with three outputs use ExtendCable3D-01. For digital (I2C) sensors or actuators, use ExtendCableD-01.
If it turns out to work great as trip wire we really recommend you to consider going wireless with the WiSystem.

with a row of 3 pins spaced 2.54 mm ( 0.100 inch) and female 1x4 plug with a row of 3 sockets spaced 2.54 mm ( 0.100 inch)
Use one of the two heatshrink sections to secure the connectors together. Slide the heatshrink section over the female connector of the extension cable. Plug the male connector of the sensor into the female connector of the extension cable. Apply heat evenly to the heatshrink using a heatgun (a hairdryer will also work) to shrink the heatshrink section so that it tightly covers the two connectors (also see the picture on this page). The second heatshrink section is a spare for future use.
To use the extension cable for an actuator like the Switch, use a needle to press down on the metal lever of the pin that is connected to the white wire in the both housings of the extension cable such that you can pull out the white wire from the housing. Once the pin is out of the housing, lift up the metal lever again with the needle, place the pin in the slot that was previously unused and confirm the metal lever blocks the pin from sliding out of the slot.
