Hall Research hits 50m with Cat6 extender

Hall Research has released the U2-160-4 USB 2.0 extender with integrated 4-Port Hub that can send data over Cat6 cables.

The unit extends data of up to 480 Mbps up to 160 feet (50 metres) and is driver-free and platform-free. It is possible to connect multiple USB devices such as printers, HD webcams, KVMs and smart boards.

In most applications no additional power supply connection is needed as power is drawn from the host and sent through the CAT5e/6 cable. A universal power supply is included, which can be connected to the remote hub when using high power USB devices.
