- Connect a USB 2.0 device to your computer up to 100 m (330 ft) away and power the USB extender from the local or remote side
- 1 Port USB 2.0 Over Cat5 or Cat6 Extender Kit

- Flexible power input from the local unit or from the remote unit
- Universal and multi-platform compatible with no drivers required
This single-port USB 2.0 extender lets you access and use your USB device up to 100 m away over Cat5e or Cat6 cable. Since it can be powered by either the local or the remote unit, you have more flexibility to place your USB device exactly where you need it. It’s the perfect USB extension solution for warehouses, factories, classrooms, boardrooms, homes, or offices.
Flexible power input options
Many USB-to-Ethernet extenders require that the remote unit has a power source connected for operation, which can make installation difficult. This versatile extender overcomes that restriction, letting you connect the power adapter to the local (transmitter) unit or remote (receiver) unit.
When the power adapter is connected to the local unit, the extender delivers power over your Cat5e or Cat6 cable, eliminating the need for a power adapter in the remote location. Now you can install your USB device even in a remote location where a power outlet is unavailable, up to 100 m away.
Eliminates hassle and smashes distance limitations
This USB extender overcomes the 16 ft. cable length limitations of traditional USB 2.0 cables, so you can create a more efficient workspace. It’s perfect for connecting webcams, printers, flash drives, and virtually any USB peripheral.
Plus, with the included power adapter, you can connect power-hungry USB devices such as external hard drives. For added installation convenience, the USB-to-Ethernet extender features built-in cable-tie slots for mounting to a pole.
The USB 2.0-over-Cat5-or-Cat6 extender is multi-platform compatible, so it supports a variety of operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome OS. Setup is easy with no additional drivers or software required, and the universal USB extender is backward compatible with USB 1.1 and 1.0 peripherals.
The USB2001EXT2P is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
