This next generation 4 -port USB 2.0 hub extends up to four hi -speed devices up to 330 -feet (100m) in distance. This allows users to operate peripherals away from the computer, ideal for setting up a remote workstation.


The USB 2.0 LR 4 -Port Extender provides a high -bandwidth method of extending up to four printers, cameras, hard drives, DVD burners and more using a single CAT -5 cable. Data is transmitted at rates up to 480 Mbps, and the product is compatible with all previous versions of USB.

The USB 2.0 LR 4 -Port Extender is simple to install and use. It operates through a wall -mountable sender/receiver system, available in either a black or white finish. The sender connects to the computer, and the receiver connects to four remote USB devices. One CAT -5 cable connects local and remote locations.

Power is typically supplied to the sender unit by the connected source device. If the source cannot power the unit, an optional 5 -volt power supply is available. The receiver unit requires power, which is included with locking power supply.
