Startech USB over Cat5 Ethernet Extender
Startech USB over Cat5 Ethernet Extender lets you extend a USB 1.1 connection over distances of up to 40-meters (131-feet) using standard Cat5 or Cat6 UTP cabling, bypassing the normal limitation of 5m (15ft) for USB 1.1 devices and allows for the host computer system to be safely stored in a remote location.
The USB Extender features a compact design with no external power requirements, making it the ideal solution for remote USB cameras, keyboards, mice or other input devices for environments where install space or access to electrical outlets is limited.
- Secured environments where the host computer must be in a secure, inaccessible location from the keyboard, mouse, camera or other USB input devices
- Use existing in-wall Cat5/Cat6 wiring to extend USB 1.1 device connections between rooms
- Reduce cable clutter and the need for mid-point USB hubs/repeaters by running a single, easy-to-install Cat5/Cat6 cable
- Industrial control environments where the host computer must be located away from interference or contamination
