USB Extenders

Black Box Explains

What is USB?

USB is easy to use, reliable, and compatible.

Aside from the obvious benefit of distance extension, USB offers other features to maintain an easy to use, consistently reliable experience with all USB compliant devices, including transparent extension; plug-and-play operation (no software drivers required); and compatibility with all major operating systems.

Extenders enable USB to go beyond five meters.

USB extenders enable USB peripherals to be placed wherever users need them, up to 10 kilometers (6.2 mi.) from a host computer. With USB extenders, peripheral devices function as if they were within the five-meter limit specified by USB-IF. USB extenders preserve standard USB functionality and timing restrictions while accommodating the increased cable delay incurred in extended-range transmissions. Extende USB over CAT5e, fiber, and IP networks.

Numerous applications.

USB extension spans a variety of markets and applications including: keyboards, mice, hard drives, medical imaging equipment, gaming consoles, interactive whiteboards, boardroom conferencing systems, factory inspection and assembly, military communications, digital signage, security cameras, mining and petroleum exploration equipment, post-production editing machines, and many more, including the following:
  • •  Touchscreen kiosks—Using a USB extender is an easy way to place a USB-enabled touchscreen in a public space for advertising or information purposes.
  • •  Industrial controls—USB extenders are ideal for remote control and monitoring in industrial applications.
  • •  Surveillance cameras—Set up a surveillance camera using a USB camera linked to a PC. A USB extender enables you to place the camera exactly where you need it.
