Extend Any USB 1.1 Device up to 150 Feet From Your Computer

If you're like most of us at Sweetwater and do all of your computer-based recording and composing in a single room, then you know how annoying the sound of a computer fan can be. More than merely being annoying, it interferes with mixing and recording. Thats why most of us at Sweetwater who have home studios use the Gefen Mini USB-2 Extender. With a single Cat 5e cable, you can isolate that noisy computer in a closet or another room up to 150 feet away. Not only does it create a quiet working environment, bet a much less cluttered one - and less cluttered means more efficient.

Extend Any USB Device

The mini USB-2 extender extends any USB 1.1 device including keyboard and mouse up to 150 feet away from the location of your computer, eliminating the 17.5 feet distance limitation of USB. The mini USB-2 send and receive units use one CAT-5 cable for extension and is optimized for applications where two devices, such as the keyboard and mouse, must be operated remotely.

How It Works

The mini USB-2 extender send unit is placed next to the computer. A USB cable connects the computer to the mini USB-2 extender send unit. A CAT-5 cable is used to link the mini USB-2 send unit to the mini USB-2 receive unit. The USB 1.1 peripherals are connected to the mini USB-2 receiver unit. The USB-2 extender can even be used to extend surveilance cameras for security purposes.
