Extend a USB Signal Up to 36 Ft.
This genuine Tripp Lite USB 2.0 Active Device Cable is the choice for superior performance over long distances. Use the U042-036 to connect a USB 2.0 device to a USB computer over distances of up to 36 feet, with no need for additional extension cables. It features USB A (male) and USB B (male) connectors. An active repeater in the middle of the cable ensures data transmission without signal loss or performance problems. The U042-036 meets or exceeds USB 2.0 specifications and is backward compatible with older USB 1.1 devices.

Bus-Powered Signal Booster
The U042-036 features a bus-powered signal booster (no external power source required) in the middle of the cable that extends the range of the USB signal. This enables USB peripheral devices such as printers, scanners and card readers to be located up to 36 ft. from the host computer with no loss of signal quality. It provides true plug-and-play convenience with no complicated setup procedures required. The U042-036 lets you hot-swap connected devices at any time with no need to power down the computer.

High-Speed Data Transfer
With its superior design and construction plus data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps, the U042-036 is ideal for multimedia and other high-end applications that require fast, clear transmission, free of line noise and other interference, over long distances. The U042-036 can provide 250mA of power to a connected device. If your device requires more than 250mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply or be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (Tripp Lite U222-004-R).

Premium Double-Shielding
The U042-036 is manufactured using top-quality materials to assure maximum performance. Premium double-shielding cables with tinned copper braid and aluminum Mylar foil minimize signal interference.

Lifetime Product Warranty
When you choose this genuine Tripp Lite cable, you get superior performance plus peace of mind! We're so confident of the quality of the U042-036 that we warrant it to be free from defects in material and workmanship—for life!
