Tripp Lite's 16-ft. USB Certified 2.0 active extension cable is a bus powered extension cable that can be used to increase the length of a device cable without the worry of signal loss and potential performance problems. USB limits a cable's length to 16ft. Any length above 16 feet requires the use of an active cable such as this one. This cable has a signal booster built in. The overall cable length can be extended up to 80ft by daisy chaining up to 5 of these active cables. The cable must be plugged directly into a USB port (either on the PC or a hub). Use a standard 6' 10' or 15' USB cable to reach the desired distance. Tripp Lite warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for life.
-Premium double-shielded cables with tinned copper braid and aluminum mylar foil feature twisted 28/20 AWG data lines. -Gold plated contacts provide superior conductivity for low and high speed devices (1.5 to 480 Mbps.). -Active extension cable regenerates USB signal for extra-long distances: daisy-chain up to 80-ft. in most applications.
