Am just coding up my first Uno project and the final project board will be about 10 meters away from the PC.
I would like to be able to connect the two with the Arduino IDE to allow direct re programming and to also use the serial monitor for feeding back sensor info.
I believe the max distance a USB cable can do is 5 meters, which is said, can be extended using powered hubs... ??
Had thought about taking the 328s TX/RX signals out via a pair of Max232 chips and building an Atmega8U2 USB converter at the PC end ?
Any suggestions for a better method of connecting them ?
