The patent-pending USB SuperBooster wall plate allows a USB signal to run over Category 5, 5e, and 6 patch cords, enabling a USB device to function with a host computer up to 150 feet (compared to typical wall plates at 15 feet). SuperBooster is designed for peripheral access in remote locations, and for secure placement of critical equipment. The plug-and-play device consists of a transmitter unit with USB Type B female input and RJ-45 female output connectors, and a receiver unit with RF-45 female input and USB Type A female output connectors. Choose pre-terminated network cables or pull un-terminated cable and use the tool-less IDC RJ-45 connectors that are included with the device. No external power is required.
