Overview

Tripp Lite's High-Speed USB 2.0 Active A-B cable overcomes the 5-meter USB distance limitation with an active repeater in the middle of the cable. Now USB printers and other devices can be located up to 36-ft. away from the computer in a single, non-daisychainable run, with no need for extension cables. Full 480Mbps speed is maintained along the entire length of the cable. Backward compatible to USB 1.1. Plug-and-play, Windows and MAC compatible. The U042-036 provides up to 150mA of power to the connected device. If your device requires more than 150mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply; or, to be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (such as U222-007-R) that is connected to the U042-036.

  • The U042-036 provides up to 150mA of power to the connected device. If your device requires more than 150mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply; or, to be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (such as U222-007-R) that is connected to the U042-036.

System Requirements

Frequently Asked Questions

Most mobile devices use USB cables to recharge their batteries. A USB 2.0 cable can provide up to 2.5 watts of power, sufficient to charge a phone or tablet. The new USB Power Delivery specification can provide up to 100 watts and it’s bi-directional, so a device can send or receive power. So, assuming a laptop requires a 60 watts charge, it could mean the end of bulky power adapters and proprietary charging cables. This available wattage will depend on the hardware and on the capabilities of the cable selected.

Additional FAQs may be available on the U042036 model support page.
