4-port USB 2.0 hub

The USB-400 FO is a fiber optics-based extender. This long-range 4-port USB 2.0 hub powers multiple hi-speed peripherals at distances up to 1,640' from the computer. The extender provides a high-bandwidth method of extending up to four USB 2.0 devices, including printers, keyboard/mouse, cameras, hard drives and DVD burners, enabling complete connectivity when operating in the field. It operates through compact sender/receiver units, with the sender connecting to the computer, and the receiver connecting to four remote USB devices. Two multi-mode fiber optic cables terminated in LC connectors connect local and remote locations; both sender and receiver are individually powered. Local connection cables are included.
