    The USB Ultimate Network or Direct Connect Extender uses inexpensive UTP cable you may already have installed in your building or your existing LAN architecture for easy, cost-effective USB extension.

    It's ideal for USB keyboard and mouse extension and sensor/data acquisition applications. Plus it's great for connecting to whiteboards in classrooms located beyond the maximum USB bus distance.

    Or use the extender to bridge the gap between a computer CPU or server and USB flash drives, scanners, and printers in other rooms, as well as for connecting USB monitoring cameras or USB touch screens used for interactive digital signage.

    The extender offers reliable operation with all USB 2.0 and 1.1 peripheral devices, including USB hubs. The local unit and the four-port remote unit receive their power from the included AC adapters, and the local unit supplies 600-mA power over the link to each USB port on the remote unit.
