Supporting USB Shortcomings!APRIL 18, 2012
USB connectivity has standardized peripheral connections into one universally supported connection. This has revolutionized the tech industry from both a support and performance standpoint. However, even universal connectivity can have its limitations, especially since standard USB cables are usually limited to about 16ft max distance.
We've alleviated that short cable run limitation with the USB2004EXT2 USB over Cat5 Extender, which lets you extend USB devices up to 330ft (100m) away from your computer over Ethernet cable! The adapter includes both a local transmitter and a remote receiver; the receiver actually features four USB 2.0 ports, which lets you connect USB devices as if attached to a hub.
The USB2004EXT2 fits a variety of applications where USB-enabled devices need to be located great distances away from a host computer, helping to reduce cable clutter or unnecessary mid-point USB hubs. The USB extender can also be used with existing in-wall network wiring, to extend USB connections between rooms, and it's really easy to set up, with no drivers or software required!comments powered by Disqus
