Gefen intros USB 2.0 extender
Gefen has launched its USB 2.0 SR Extender, which can extend a signal up to 50 meters over a single Cat-5 cable. Companies can use the product to remotely control USB devices like computers or digital signage, according to a press release.
The product supports USB 2.0 and 1.1, as well as speeds up to 480 Megabytes per second. Other features include:
- Supports variety of USB devices
- USB Type A output, which can be connected to a USB hub
- USB Type B input
- Metal enclosures to prevent interference
"The new Gefen USB 2.0 SR extender adds to this prestigious line-up by giving users a lower cost option for extending USB 2.0, at a shorter range of 50 meters and with a single USB port instead of the two ports offered on the EXT-USB2.0-LR. This affordable addition to our USB Extender line opens the market to new customers who are looking for the reliability of a Gefen USB extender but do not need the enhanced features offered by the long-range model," Jason Fitzgerald, product manager, Gefen, said in the release.
