Extend USB 2.0 peripherals beyond the 16 ft (5 m) limitation up to 328 ft (100 m) over CATx, and power it locally or remotely. Extend a USB peripheral connection beyond the desktop to USB keyboards, mice, printers, webcams, interactive whiteboards, and other devices. The extender receives power locally or remotely, so you have the flexibility to power the extender where it is most convenient for you.

The extender supplies up to 500 mA to the downstream USB device and offers reliable operation with USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices.
