USB Over IP Extender

Allows Windows PCs to Connect to Four USB Devices on the Same Subnet

Also known as: Remote Access to USB Devices, USB on IP, USB IP Extender, USB Management over IP.

XTENDEX® USB-IP-4

Product Highlights

  • Share USB devices over a network
  • Extends USB cabling distance beyond 5 meters
  • Supports local access

The XTENDEX® USB Over IP Extender allows Windows PCs to connect to four USB devices on the same subnet, eliminating the need for locally-attached host PCs. Software drivers are loaded onto a host PC or server, enabling remote devices to communicate with the host, without changing existing application software. USB peripheral devices can be centrally managed and monitored from a remote server or PC via the included USB server software.

USB-IP-4 is ideal for retailers – relocating the host PC to a back office or other remote location allows for smaller point-of-sale stations, centralized management, reduced IT support, and instant system redundancy. Kiosk, ATM or pay-at-the-pump manufacturers can eliminate the PC from the enclosure, reducing concerns of extreme changes in temperature or humidity. The USB-IP-4 unit is also useful for restaurant kitchens, access control systems, industrial automation or any environment that is volatile, not secure or where having an on-site PC is not practical.
