PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Don't settle for inferior workmanship and performance! The Tripp Lite U042-036 USB Active Device Cable assures that you get maximum performance from USB 2.0 devices over distances up to 36 feet, over twice the normal USB distance limitation. Unlike cut-price cables, the U042-036 is manufactured to exacting specifications, using superior materials, to deliver full USB 2.0 performance for multimedia and other high-end applications. And we back our pledge of quality with a lifetime product warranty.

U042-036 Applications

Extend a USB Signal Up to 36 ft.

This genuine Tripp Lite USB 2.0 Active Device Cable is the choice for superior performance over long distances. Use the U042-036 to overcome the standard 16-foot USB distance limitation and connect a USB 2.0 device to a USB computer at distances of up to 36 feet, with no need for additional extension cables. It features USB A (male) and USB B (male) connectors. An active repeater in the middle of the cable assures data transmission without signal loss or performance problems. The U042-036 meets or exceeds USB 2.0 specifications and is backward compatible with older USB 1.1 devices.

U042-036 Feature Focus

Bus-Powered Signal Booster

The U042-036 features a bus-powered signal booster (no external power source required) in the middle of the cable that extends the range of the USB signal. This enables USB peripheral devices such as printers, scanners and card readers to be located up to 36 ft. from the host computer with no loss of signal quality. It provides true plug-and-play convenience with no complicated setup procedures required. The U042-036 lets you hot-swap connected devices at any time with no need to power down the computer.

High-Speed Data Transfer

With its superior design and construction plus data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps, the U042-036 is ideal for multimedia and other high-end applications that require fast, clear transmission, free of line noise and other interference, over long distances.

Premium Double Shielding

The U042-036 is manufactured using top-quality materials to assure maximum performance. Premium double-shielding cables with tinned copper braid and aluminum mylar foil minimize signal interference.

Lifetime Product Warranty

When you choose this genuine Tripp Lite cable, you get superior performance plus peace of mind! We're so confident of the quality of the U042-036 that we warrant it to be free from defects in material and workmanship—for life!

5 out of 5 eggsThe longest USB I've Ever Seen

Pros: I needed to snake around my living room to cleanly get my USB keyboard and mouse connected (via a hub) to my PC across this room. This cable did the trick, and saved me lots of headache.

Cons: The midpoint of the cable has a electronic part which is a little bulky. About the size of a champagne cork.

Other Thoughts: Odd that this seems to be the only vendor selling this. I had tried USB-to-cat5 solutions and they weren't reliable in the end.
