Tripp Lite has introduced two new, all-in-one USB-over-Cat-5 extender hubs (models U224-1R4-R and U224-4R4-R). The U224-1R4-R consists of a three-port USB 2.0 hub and a one-port remote receiver. The U224-4R4-R consists of a transmitter and a four-port USB remote hub. Both models enable peripheral devices to be located up to 150ft. from a computer using inexpensive Cat-5e/Cat-6 cabling. Each includes an AC adapter to supply power to the remote end of the installation. No drivers or special software are required to install and use the extenders. The U224-1R4-R enables up to four peripherals to be connected to a single computer (three local and one remote). The U224-4R4-R enables four remote devices to be connected to a single computer.
