This is the kind of cable you want to use if your I-CubeX setup needs to be all over the place. Can be used for sensors with a single output and binary actuators. Can also be used, if they allow a 5 meter extension, for digital (I2C) sensors or actuators. Comes with two pieces of heatshrink to secure the connectors together. A shorter version of this cable is the ExtendCableD-01, a longer version of this cable is the ExtendCableD-10.
For sensors with two outputs use ExtendCable2D-01 and for sensors with three outputs use ExtendCable3D-01.
If it turns out to work great as trip wire we really recommend you to consider going wireless with the WiSystem.

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.
