What are USB Extenders?

The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is the most widely installed computer peripheral interface in history, enabling simple plug and play connectivity for a wide variety of devices to improve the computing experience. However, the USB cable extension is limited to 5 meters.

Icron USB extenders are a true plug and play product extending USB 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0 well beyond their natural limitation without compromising on the speed or quality of the products.

USB’s five-meter distance limitation may cause installation issues for applications where the host computer needs to be located away from the user (e.g. secured locations to prevent tampering, factory floors where environmental conditions may be unsafe, and medical imaging applications with exposure risks or privacy concerns). To overcome this distance limitation, Icron developed a series of patented technologies called ExtremeUSB®. Available in a variety of form factors to suit your OEM configurations, ExtremeUSB is the most robust and reliable USB extension technology available and is backed by 20 years of development with thousands of test case permutations.

ExtremeUSB extends the range of USB over multiple types of media such as CATx, fiber, LAN, wireless, coax, and powerline. All Icron products include the ExtremeUSB suite of features: transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers required) and works with all major operating systems such as Windows®, macOS™, and Linux® and Chrome OS™.
