Hi huys,

my cable looks a bit tired and is slightly wearing away, can see co-axil through the plastic housing, ive taped it up for now and seems ok but id imagine it will cause me an issue in future

can anyone advise if these can be repaired? or is there an exchange possible maybe?

Thanks for advice

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris. You purchased a HEX+CAN device from Ilexa. I am guessing you are speaking about the USB wire and that the molded section over the USB connector is beginning to fail / the wire is pulling out of the molded section.

The USB wire can be replaced. As we have stopped production of these, perhaps you should speak with Ilexa about whether or not they have wires to offer. Ilexa assembled that unit.
