Overview

Tripp Lite's B203-101-PNP 1-Port Plug-and-Play USB 2.0 over Cat5/Cat6 Extender Kit transmits data from your computer to a USB 2.0 peripheral up to 164 ft. (50 m) away. It has plug-and-play functionality, meaning you don't have to install drivers or software. For added convenience, the transmitter has a built-in USB-A cable for connection to your computer. The USB signals travel between the transmitter and receiver units over user-supplied Cat5/Cat6 cable. It's a simple, cost-effective solution for connecting your computer to a printer or other USB peripheral that lacks network connectivity and is farther than 16-ft. (4.88 m) away from your computer, which is the distance limitation for USB cables. For example, you can use the B203-101-PNP to connect an impact printer to a server in another room. This extender kit is also convenient for making connections in areas without network availability.

By using Cat5/Cat6 cable to carry signals, the B203-101-PNP extends your installation farther than is possible with standard USB cables. Plus, Cat5/Cat6 cabling is readily available at low cost. For maximum signal integrity, use solid-conductor Cat5/Cat6 UTP cabling, such as Tripp Lite's N202-series. The B203-101-PNP extender kit can achieve data transfer rates up to 480 Mbps. It's backward compatible with USB 1.1 peripherals, but at USB 1.1 speeds. The B203-101-PNP works with all major operating systems (Windows and Mac). Complies with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases.

Features

Long-Distance Data Transfer to 1 Device—Up to 164-ft. (50 m) from the Source
  • Send data to a USB 2.0 device located up to 164-ft. (50 m) from the source
  • USB signals travel over a single user-supplied Cat5/Cat6 cable
  • Includes transmitter with built-in USB-A cable and a 1-port receiver
  • Supports data transfer rates up to 480 Mbps

Greater Distance over Cat5/Cat6 Cable Provides Greater Flexibility
  • Cat5/Cat6 cabling exceeds the 16-ft. (4.88 m) distance limitation of USB cables
  • Allows connection to devices that lack network connectivity in areas beyond the reach of standard USB cables
  • Makes connections in areas without network availability
  • Allows source to be in a secure location, separate from peripherals
  • Cat5/Cat6 cabling is cost-effective and readily available
  • For best results, use solid-conductor Cat5/Cat6 UTP cable, such as Tripp Lite's N202-series cable
