    USB 3.0 Ultimate Fiber Extender


    Quick Facts

  • Ideal for linking to USB 3.0 security and industrial cameras, external DVD drives, and other high-bandwidth USB devices.

  • Further Details

  • Extends USB 3.0 signals up 100 meters (330 ft.) over multimode fiber cable.
  • Transfers at 5-Gbps speeds—ten times faster than USB 2.0.
  • Includes a local unit and remote unit with two USB 3.0 ports.
  • Enables the use of secure and isolated fiber for extensions.
  • AIA USB3™ Vision compliant (upon standard release).
  • Receiver supplies 900 mA power to the remote USB devices.
  • Plug and play. No drivers to install on your computer.
  • Features locking USB power ports for secure plug-ins.
  • Works with Windows®, Mac® OS X®, and Linux® systems.

  • Extend USB signals as far as 100 meters (330 ft.) to two remote USB 3.0 devices using secure, interference-free fiber cabling.

    The USB 3.0 Ultimate Fiber Extender uses multimode fiber optic cabling to extend device signals to remote areas of your factory, office, or security monitoring application.

    Compatible with the USB 3.0 or "SuperSpeed USB" standard, the extender boasts speeds up to 5 Gbps, about ten times that of USB 2.0. This way, you can extend your USB bus connections to newer USB 3.0 devices that use higher bandwidths and require bidirectional asynchronous, full-duplex data transfer. Plus, it supplies more power than USB 2.0 to the remote devices.

    With the higher data-transfer rate and power, the extender is ideal for connecting industrial USB 3.0 machine vision cameras, particularly those with high power sensors. It's also great for post-production video editing and broadcast applications with USB 3.0 peripherals and external USB CD/DVD drives in different rooms.

    The extender offers reliable operation with all USB 3.0, including USB hubs. The local unit draws its power from the USB bus and the two-port remote unit receives its power from the included AC adapter. The remote unit supplies 900 mA power for each USB port.

    NOTE: This unit is not backwards compatible with USB 2.0 or 1.0 devices. What's included:
    • Local extender unit
    • Remote extender unit
    • USB 3.0 cable
    • Power supply with country-specific cord
    • Quick start guide
    • 2-Year Warranty
