Features

Connects Your Computer or Laptop to a USB 2.0 Device up to 164-ft. (50 m) Away
This plug-and-play extender kit is ideal for connecting your home or office computer's USB-A port to a printer, 1080p webcam, external hard drive or other USB device located up to 164-ft. (50 m) away. The B203-101-POC includes a local transmitter and a remote receiver. It sends USB 2.0 signals over user-supplied Cat5/6 cabling (such as Tripp Lite's N202-Series Cat6 Ethernet cables).
Built-In Power over Cable Technology Provides Power to Avoid Bulky Power Bricks
PoC powers the receiver over Cat5/6 cable. Green and orange LEDs on both units will light up to indicate they are receiving power and data is being transmitted. PoC lets you avoid the hassle of a bulky power brick and gives you the freedom to place the transmitter and receiver away from AC outlets. Note: if connected to a high-density USB hard drive, the receiver features a USB Micro-B port for plugging a 5V external power supply (sold separately) into an AC outlet.
With Great Distance Comes Great Flexibility
By extending the USB connection beyond the standard 16-ft. (4.88 m) distance limitation to 164-ft. (50 m), the B203-101-POC provides workstation flexibility to place your computer and the USB device where they are best suited. This extender kit supports USB 2.0 data transfer rates up to 480 Mbps and is backward compatible with USB 1.1 technology, allowing you to connect legacy devices. No network connectivity is needed.
Built-In USB Cable Offers a Fast, Easy Plug-and-Play Connection
Just connect the transmitter's USB cable to your computer's USB-A port, connect a USB 2.0 device to the receiver's USB-A port, and connect the two units with Cat5/6 cable (sold separately). You don't need to download any drivers or other software. 

Typical Applications
