AVPro Edge has introduced the AC-EXUSB-3-KIT that accommodates up to four USB devices via USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A female ports, using  stable technology to transport any combination of up to four USB 3.2 Gen 1, 2.0, 1.0 signals across distances as great as 328 feet (100-meters) over CAT-6A cabling.

“With our proven expertise at flawlessly extending 8K HDMI signals an industry-best nearly 1,000 feet, AVPro engineers have now successfully created a valuable tool for our integration partners that provides an identical solution for extending high-performance USB connectivity,” says Matt Murray, CTO at AVPro Edge. “USB signals present unique challenges, with USB 3.X limited by passive cabling to a mere nine feet. But our video heritage and engineering acumen have come to the rescue when such a limitation simply won’t do.”

The AC-EXUSB-3-KIT is a two-piece solution, with the device-end conveniently functioning as a hub for as many as four USB peripherals. Mixed USB signal standards may be used simultaneously, and all USB ports on both the Host and the Device are robust USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type. Integrators will appreciate the kit’s compact form factor, which makes for easy placement possibilities, says AV Pro Edge.
