Icron is the leader in professional extensions for USB technology where a company or corporation is looking to run data via USB over an extended amount of length. Generally USB is goof for about 12 feet or so, but with Icron you can run over 300 feet of USB. Yet, there is a middle ground for those who need more than 12 feet and less than 40 feet for USB data transmittal applications. A good example is a small business or home business who’s looking to run a USB webcam at the front door for security.
Albeit you can get some WiFi webcams you may want to build something yourself for only pennies. Today, we have a nice tutorial for you to build a USB dongle for a CAT5 cable to run USB data transfers. The CAT5 DIY project will double your USB cable length and get you to about 30 or 35 feet of distance.This project is best suited for video and audio transfers for extended S-Video applications or webcam applications. I found this tutorial on Instructables.
Icron is leading the way in low cost USB extension options with their new Ranger 2101 and Ranger 2104 products. These extension adapters are a single connect to extend a USB device up to 100 meters away. The concept is simple, through USB and CAT5 Icron ExtremeUSB technology can maintain high speed USB transfer rates over such a hard wired configuration.
The Ranger 2101 is a single connect ExtremeUSB extension box with a retail price of $349 and the Ranger 2104 is a single connect with 4 port end-point hub for multiple device connection for only $389. To learn more about the Icron ExtremeUSB technology read my earlier posts.
