ASA USB 2.0 CAT 5 Extender W/4Port Hub
The ASA USB 2.0 CAT 5 Extender W/4Port Hub is an ideal solution for astronomers who wish to operate their ASA telescope or astrograph from inside a warm building or vehicle, which may be located some distance from their telescope or observatory! This product consists of two electronic modules (units), a "Local unit" and a "Remote unit". These modules will be connected by a standard Cat 5 cable, which may be up to 328feet (100m) in length. (Note: A "Category 5" or Cat 5 cable is a twisted pair type of cable for carrying digital signals, often used in structure-based-cabling for data networks, such as Ethernet. It's like extending your USB 2.0 beyond your desktop up to a distance of 100m.
The AC power adapter at the remote unit provides standard 500mA to each USB port. A power adapter at the local unit is not required for normal operation. An integrated hub provides four remote USB 2.0 ports. True plug and play, ready to operate right out of the box. No new driver installation required. Will support major operating systems including Windows®, Mac OS®, and Linux®.
The ASA USB 2.0 CAT 5 Extender W/4Port Hub extends USB 2.0 high-speed and USB 1.1 (low-speed, full speed) devices up to 100m (328feet) over standard Cat 5 cable. It supports all USB device types: Control, Interrupt, Bulk, and Isochronous. This system includes a Local Extender (LEX) module, a Remote Extender (REX) module, a 2meter USB cable, and an international power adapter with a country-specific cord. The photo shows both units: the module on the left is the Local Extender (LEX) unit which connects to your computer via a USB cable; the module on the right is the Remote Extender (REX) unit which has four USB connectors. The connectors for the Cat 5 cable are not visible as they are located on the rear panels. Only the Remote unit requires power, supplied by the included AC power adapter. Therefore, AC power or a suitable source of DC power (5VDC at 3A) must be available at the remote location.
