USB Rover® 1300

The USB Rover™ 1300 is designed for end user applications. It provides all the flexibility of extended range USB in a ready-to-use package. The USB Rover 1300 is optimized for applications where a single full-speed device, such as a webcam or printer, must be operated remotely.

Icron’s® Rover products operate over standard Cat 5e cable (the same wiring used in Ethernet). The technology behind the product, ExtremeUSB®, requires no additional software for either the computer or the target devices.

USB Rover products are composed of two separate units: the Local Extender (LEX) and the Remote Extender (REX). Conventional USB cables are used to connect the LEX unit to the host computer and to connect the remote USB device to the REX unit. Cat 5e cabling is used to connect the LEX and REX units over a distance of up to 100 m/328 ft.

The USB Rover 1300 is powered from USB and delivers enough power at the remote unit to drive most USB webcams.
