Here’s a versatile, inexpensive USB 2.0 extender. It makes it easy to place your USB device further away, which is perfect for home, office, classroom, and more environments. Now you can easily access your USB 2.0 device and use it in a remote location, up to 50m away, using a Cat5 or Cat6 cable.
Avoid the hassle of distance limitations
This USB extender allows you to overcome the traditional length limitation (4.8m) of a USB 2.0 cable, in order to create a more efficient and flexible workspace.
It is an inexpensive USB to Ethernet solution that is ideal for almost any USB 2.0 device. You can connect a webcam in the back of a classroom, or a printer in another room in an office, all 50 meters away from your host computer.
Additionally, with an included power adapter for the remote drive, it is possible to connect power-intensive USB devices such as external hard drives.
Rugged durability that avoids worry
Unlike other plastic-enclosed USB extenders, this extender has a metal enclosure for rugged durability. Whether the extender is installed in a permanent location or is to be moved to another location, you don’t have to worry about whether your USB peripheral will stay connected and accessible just when you need it.
Compatible with any operating system as well as older devices
The USB 2.0 extender over Cat5 or Cat6 works independently of the OS, as it is compatible with various operating systems. Setup is straightforward with no additional drivers or software required, and the extender is backward compatible with USB 1.1 and 1.0 peripherals.
Use it as an intermediary repeater, to increase the connection distance of your USB peripherals and avoid cable clutter
Perfect solution for environments where the host computer is in an inaccessible location
No need to install new cabling as USB connections can be extended between rooms, using existing Cat5 or Cat6 straight-through cables.
