    The USB-EXT-2 is compatible with USB 1.1 and High-Speed USB 2.0, supporting virtually any USB device type including keyboards and mice, whiteboards, game controllers, cameras, audio devices, mobile devices, printers, flash drives, hard drives, and hubs. It is plug-and-play compatible with computers running Windows®, macOS®, and Linux® operating systems without requiring any additional drivers to be installed.[2]

    The USB-EXT-2 is composed of two extender components. The “local” extender connects to your computer, conferencing system, media server, game console, or other USB host. The “remote” extender provides two USB ports for connecting USB devices (HID, cameras, microphones, mass storage, smartphones, etc.) at a remote location. Linking the two extender components requires just one run of CAT5e (or better) unshielded twisted-pair cable.[1] Both extender components are powered by a single 100-240V AC power pack, which can be connected at either end wherever an AC power receptacle is available.[3]

    Note: The USB-EXT-2 is a simple point-to-point USB signal extender. It does not switch or route USB signals, and does not connect to a network. For KVM and other applications routing USB signals over an Ethernet network, please refer to the USB-EXT-DM-LOCALand USB-EXT-DM-REMOTE.
