The USB technology:
USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a plug and play device introduced in1995. This device's basic purpose is to provide safe and easy storage and sharing of data from one computer, laptop, or any such gadget to another. USB device allows you fast peripheral connectivity to your system with the OS automatically configuring the system to use a connected device.
USB 2.0 to Ethernet extender, adapter over Cat5 and Cat6:
Insufficient cable length is a burning issue in USB connections. As the cable reaches and exceeds the recommended length, the signals start diminishing. The common length of USB 2.0 or 3.0 connections is just under 10 feet, which means that any device connected to your computer system should be placed in the vicinity of 10 feet only. Incorporate meetings, we mostly need more distance for that. This distance can be extended by using a USB extender.
How USB 2.0 to Ethernet extender, adapter over Cat5 and Cat6 extend USB?
A USB extender is a two-portion device that provides us the freedom to extend the distance between a USB port and the peripheral using a Cat5 or Cat6 UTP cable. 100M is long enough for long distance data transfering.
Mechanism of action:
The UTP cable gets plugged into both parts to complete the connection. Then signal transmission starts through that cable between the extender parts to extend your USB connection beyond the 10 feet range. The data transfer rate is slightly lower than the direct USB connection. Because the resistance of a wire is directly related to distance, distance is increased so does the resistance. It's compatible with most of USB external device, support webcam, printer, scanner, keyboard, mouse, KVM switches,USB flash disk and so on, extends up to 100M from your computer.
How to extend a USB data signal using a USB extender over Cat5 or Cat6?
USB extender over Cat5 or Cat6 not only provides us a long-distance connection but also maintains good data transferring speed and uniform signal strength. Not all of the USB extenders are blessed with such capacity. It all depends on the fiber used in cables of a USB extender over Cat5 or cat6. During launching days, a USB extender over Cat5 or Cat6 worked only at USB 1.1 speeds, which can make hardly enough for a keyboard and mouse or maybe a printer. It is way below par from the speed required for speedy file transfers, display adapters, cameras, and other high bandwidth applications.
How WEme USB 2.0 Ethernet Extender to RJ45 over Cat5/5E/6 solves speed issues?
Our Ethernet extender to RJ45 over Cat5/5E/6 can work up to 328FT and supports a speed up to 480Mbps. It has a built four-port USB hub, which allows you to connect multiple devices simultaneously.
How to extend Cat5 cable?
It has fairly simple steps:
- Plugin one of the 5-port switches in an electrical outlet near the terminal of an Ethernet cable just close to its limit of 100M/328FT. Then insert the end of the cable into the first port of the switch.
- Insert an additional cable into another port of the switch. The switch will then work as an inexpensive relay and boom up the Ethernet signal, extending beyond the 100-meter range.
- Take the second switch to the place where you need extra ports. An electric cord of the switch will be plugged into an outlet. Plugin the patch cable into an Ethernet wall port in the room. Patch cables are short lengths of Ethernet cord with two male ends.
- Plugin the patch cable's remaining end into the first port on the 5-port Ethernet switch and ensure all connections are secure. Check the connection working. If it's working smoothly, then you have successfully transformed one port of Cat5 cable into four via a switch.
