L-com pushes Icron's USB extension technology at BICSI Winter 2015
L-com showcased Icron's USB 2.0 Over LAN and USB 3.0 Over Fiber extension products at the recent BICSI Winter 2015 show in Orlando, FL.
Specifically, Icron's USB 2.0 Over LAN and USB 3.0 Over Fiber extension products were displayed by L-com. L-com says that Icron's USB extension technology is quite relevant to its existing BICSI-oriented product lines, in that many USB-based applications require connection beyond the limitations of USB's specified cable distance.
Icron's USB 2.0 Ranger 2304-LAN is a four-port USB 2.0 high-speed extension solution with the ability to connect USB devices such as flash drives, interactive whiteboards, keyboards and mice over a LAN using existing Ethernet cabling. This USB extension approach saves the installer time and money since separate Cat 5e cabling is not required, notes Icron. The Ranger 2304-LAN supports USB 2.0 throughputs up to 480Mbps with extension up to 100 meters between network switches.
Icron's USB 3.0 Spectra series of extenders provide flexibility for varying distance USB 3.0 extension requirements. For short range operation, the USB 3.0 Spectra 3001-15 is a bus-powered copper cable that extends USB 3.0 at 15 meters while providing a full 5V, 900mA of current. If longer extension is required, Icron's USB 3.0 Spectra 3022 extender system has the capability to extend up to 100 meters and beyond over multimode OM3 fiber-optic cabling. Both extenders support throughputs of 5Gbps and feature locking connectors per the AIA USB3 Vision specification.
All Icron extenders include the company's ExtremeUSB suite of features, including transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers), and compatibility with all major operating systems including Windows 8. Learn more at www.icron.com.
