Overcome Distance Limitations

This USB Extender Kit enables you to exceed the limitations posed by traditional USB cable lengths, to establish long-range USB connections. Use this kit for a wide variety of applications such as remote surveillance and monitoring with a webcam (up to 1080p resolution), controlling machines at a distance, remote printing, connecting retail barcode scanners, and many other applications. In addition, the remote unit is connected to a power source, using the included power adapter, for applications requiring USB bus power.

Rugged Durability

The local and remote units feature a metal exterior for extra protection and longevity in harsher environments. With dimensions of only 1.3 x 1.0 x 2.65 in (32.2 x 25.4 x 67.3 mm), both units are very compact, allowing for installations in tight spaces.

Ease of Use

The USB over Ethernet cable extender kit is compatible with any operating system and does not require any additional software to work.
