16-Foot Extension Cable Connects Computers, Printers, Modems and Other USB Equipment
This USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Type-A Extension Cable (M/F) attaches to your current USB 3.0 cable to extend it by 16-ft. (4.88 m) It connects your computer, laptop or other compatible USB 3.0 device, such as a Chromebook or Surface Pro tablet, to a USB-A keyboard, printer, portable hard drive, patch panel or other peripheral. The 16-ft. (4.88 m) length allows you great flexibility in placing equipment with respect to the power outlet.
Transfers Data at SuperSpeed Transfer Rates up to 5 Gbps
The U324-016 supports USB 3.0 speeds up to 5 Gbps—10 times the speed of USB 2.0—and better power efficiency with no device polling and lower active and idle power requirements. The cable's bi-directional data interface allows data to flow both directions simultaneously, increasing theoretical bandwidth by 10 times. Sync-N-Go technology allows the cable to quickly detect and sync the connected devices. The cable is backward compatible with previous USB generations, allowing you to use it with legacy devices.
