Contact Sales for more information.


The USB 2.0 RG2212 Turnkey product is comprised of two separate printed circuit boards: the Local Extender and the Remote Extender for easy integration into a custom enclosure. Conventional USB cables are used to connect the Local unit to the host computer, and the remote USB device to the Remote unit. Cat 5e UTP cabling is used to connect the Local and Remote units to support USB 2.0 480Mbps over a distance of up to 100m (330ft).

The system delivers standard 500mA USB power over the Cat 5e extension link to the two port remote hub, eliminating the need to locate the remote USB devices near an AC power outlet and greatly increasing the ease of deployment for USB extension in industrial, medical, commercial and other applications.

A true plug-and-play solution, the USB 2.0 RG2212 Turnkey is compatible with all leading operating systems, and supports all USB 1.1 and 2.0 device types from high-speed web cams, hard drives, printers, scanners, audio devices, touch screens, digital cameras and game controllers.
