L-com Inc, a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced that it will offer two new Icron Technologies Ranger 2304 USB extenders.
The Ranger 2304 is a four port USB 2.0 high speed extension device, allowing USB 2.0 connections at up to 480 Mbps over 100m or 330ft of Cat5e (or better) network cabling. The new Ranger2304 offers the same reliable USB 2.0 extension benefits as the Ranger 2204, but with faster throughputs when using read and write devices such as external hard drives. Also, the Ranger 2304 supports a greater number of connections (up to 31 devices and hubs).
The Ranger 2304-LAN builds upon the 2304 by adding the ability to connect USB 2.0 devices to hosts across an Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) using existing cabling. The Ranger 2304-LAN is compatible with 100 Mbps and 1000 Mpbs networks and can be used with Cat5e or better cabling up to 100 m or 330 feet.
“The new Ranger 2304 series offer customers more options for USB 2.0 extension with greater feature support, compared to the first generation extenders,” said Manuel Martinez III, Product Manager at L-com. “Icron delivers the most reliable USB extension products today.”
