Let’s see how we can help,
The VOL-FP control cable is based on I2C protocol. This protocol is really meant for board to board connection (i.e. on the PCB or inside the product). 5m might actually be an issue for that reason. Worth a trial but most likely that you’ll get some errors/dropped packets simply because the I2C protocol was “not” meant to be used as such.

Hoping this info helps and keep us updated if you have further questions.

Hello Alvaro

Yes, it’s indeed possible. Would you lease have a look at the user manual of the miniSHARC? I’m pretty sure that we’re providing some great info on how to connect DIGI=FP/DA-FP/AN-FP.. :-)

Hoping this info helps
