Long Distance signal transmission with Fiber Optic Extender and USB 2.0 Extender units
Beachwood, OH (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
As modern technology moves to greater imaging resolutions and higher throughput requirements of captured data, fiber optic cabling is emerging as the technology best suited to address these needs. Despite improvements in wireless technology, the security of a solid physical link and throughput of fiber optic cables over distances is a necessity for many industries. KVMSwitchTech has recently added two items to its Fiber Optic Extender product line that combine simplicity and functionality. The new models include Icron USB 2.0 Ranger 2224 Multimode Fiber Extender and the DVI Dual Link Fiber Optic Extender.
DVI over fiber optic extender for displays is not a new concept. KVMSwitchTech already offers a large selection of DVI-D single link, HDMI, and even DVI-D dual link fiber optic extenders. What separates the new DVI Dual Link Fiber Extender over two strand multimode fiber optic cable from prior dual link extenders is the use of a single cable. This miniature marvel is a transmitter and receiver pair capable of sending WQXGA (2560x1600) resolution signals nearly 1000 feet through the use of one common two-strand multimode SC optical fiber cable. More importantly for many users, this extender is HDCP compliant so there is no concern about the image being lost due to security encoding. Finally, all of this is accomplished without any video quality degradation making this plug and play device ideal for Digital Signage, Government, Military, and Hospital applications.
Displays are not the only devices to benefit from the capabilities of fiber optic cables. The Icron USB 2.0 Ranger 2224 Multimode Fiber Extender is an amazing product and allows users to utilize all their common USB input devices from keyboards, scanners, printers, and data drives all the way to USB touch screens over distances beyond the capability of standard USB Extender over CAT5e/Cat6 cables. This USB 2.0 Extender leverages one of the greatest features of USB 2.0, bus powered devices, by including a power supply for the 4 port USB hub receiver. When used with up to 3 other USB hubs it further enables a user to leverage 11 USB devices through one long distance data connection. We also offer USB 2.0 Extender products over Cat5e/Cat6 cables. The available models are Icron USB 2.0 Ranger 2201, Icron USB 2.0 Ranger 2101, Icron USB 2.0 Ranger 2104, Icron USB 2.0 ranger 2212, and Icron USB 2.0 Ranger 2204.
