USB Extension Cable 2.0 Repeater Active Amplified 16ft. A to A Female


Availability: In stock



Extend the distance you can run your USB 1.1 or 2.0 device from the computer.

This USB Repeater Cable is not a passive extension cable. It is an active device. The USB signals going in and out of the extension cable are buffered to assure signal quality and the meeting of the USB's Electrical and Timing Specifications. Using passive cables for the porpose of extension will result in signal errors and is not recommended.

This USB Repeater Cable allows a USB device to have its cable length extended by up to an additional 80 feet* by serially connecting these 16 foot cables. The USB Repeater Cable acts as a transparent USB Hub and buffers all downstream and upstream data traffic. Both Low-Speed and High-Speed devices will function equally well with the USB Repeater Cable.

* Although it is possible to use multiple USB Repeater Cables in a row (up to 5), users should verify that adding the cables do not affect the operation of the USB device.


USB 2.0 Active Extension Repeater Cable ~ 16 Feet

Do you need to extend the distance from your computer to a USB device such as a printer or scanner ? 

According to the USB specification, you can use passive extension cables (i.e., cables without an active repeater chip in them) for distances up to 16 feet. Beyond sixteen feet, you need a cable that will boost the signal in order to avoid losing data or, worse yet, damaging USB equipments !

The USB signals going in and out of this usb active extension cable are buffered through the IC chip inside so to assure signal quality and meeting the USB2.0 electrical & timing specifications. Using passive cables for the purpose of extension will result in signal errors and is not recommended.

The maximum distance that you can reach by chaining up active USB repeater cables together is 80 feet maximum. By using 16 foot cables (the most common length available) you can safely chain up to 5 of these usb repeaters together and have a regular device cable of up to 16 feet without risking data loss or damage to your device.

Molded strain relief and PVC overmolding to ensure a lifetime of error-free data transmissions use to extend any USB device such as USB printers, USB modem, USB scanners and USB digital camera.

This USB booster cable is USB 2.0 compliant and supports data transfer rates up to 480Mbps. Fully backward compatible with both low and high-speed USB 1.1 devices.

Features :

  • Extend up to 80 feet maximum distance with 5 USB active repeater extension cables serially connected.
  • ASIC chip built in to buffer the incoming and outgoing USB signals with accuracy, not like those passive type usb extension cables, which have no booster chips inside so data signals can not be carried efficiently over the distance.
  • No setup configuration required. No driver installation needed.
  • Doubles as a single port hub so multiple units can be serially connected.
  • No external power needed.
  • Molded strain relief and PVC overmolding to ensure a lifetime of error-free data transmissions.
  • Works with all low and high-speed USB devices.
  • Supports up to 127 devices on a daisy-chain configuration.
  • Type "A" male end, "A" female end connectors.
