Tripp Lite s High-Speed USB 2.0 Active A-B cable overcomes the 5-meter USB distance limitation with an active repeater in the middle of the cable. Now USB printers and other devices can be located up to 25-ft. away from the computer in a single, non-daisychainable run, with no need for extension cables. Full 480Mbps speed is maintained along the entire length of the cable. Backward compatible to USB 1.1. Plug-and-play, Windows and MAC compatible. The U042-025 provides up to 250mA of power to the connected device. If your device requires more than 250mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply; or, to be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (such as U222-007-R) that is connected to the U042-025.
