The new LINDY USB 2.0 Active Extension System Pro is a fantastic new range of devices can work together to extend USB 2.0 signals up to an incredible 56m. The devices in the range work together so that USB can be distributed much further than is typically possible. The system also allows signals to be transferred at an incredible rate of up to 480Mbps. This is much, much faster than other USB extension solutions which typically max out at a rate of around 11Mbps. All devices are both high speed USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 compatible and have locking connectors to create a secure installation.

These new devices are a system of USB cables and cable hubs that work together to reach this greater possible distance. The range is made up of four devices, 8m and 12m USB 2.0 Active Extension Cables and 8m and 12m USB 2.0 Active Extension 4 Port Cable Hubs. All or a number of then can work together to give users the best possible solution for extending USB 2.0 over great distances.

Easy to Install!

The design of the devices makes them simple to install. Any long length system has to start with an 8m Active Extension Cable. Then up to 4 additional 8m or 12m Active Extension Cables can be added to extend a USB device up to the great length. The 8m length cable can either be connected directly to your computer to act as a single extension cable or can be used as the first or middle segment of a long length installation. The 12m length cable can be used in the middle or as the final segment of an installation but cannot be directly connected to a computer. To add extra USB ports or to connect a bus powered USB device use an 8m or 12m USB Active Extension 4 Port Cable Hub as the final segment of the installation. The 8m version can also be connected directly to a computer to work as a standalone cable hub. This system is the perfect range of products for those who want to extend USB to much further distances as well as wanting to add extra USB ports.
