Used in conjunction with an Extron FOX Series DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, or VGA extender, the FOX USB Extender Plus is capable of transmitting Keyboard-Video-Mouse - KVM signals very long distances over a fiber optic infrastructure. Direct connection of USB peripherals to a remote host eliminates the need for additional IP network drops, equipment, software, or drivers. For streamlined integration, the transmitter includes USB peripheral emulation that supports trouble-free booting of the host. Also, the receiver features an integrated four port hub with 5 Volts, 500 mA available on each port to power attached devices. The capabilities and low profile design of the FOX USB Extender Plus ensure simplified device integration in a wide variety of professional environments.

"Integrators and system designers have relied upon the extensive FOX family of products for a variety of applications, including KVM," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The Extron FOX USB Extender Plus builds upon that success to include native support of USB 3.0 devices."

The FOX USB Extender Plus streamlines integration by avoiding IT-specific design criteria that may be in conflict with the need to extend USB signals in professional AV installations. For increased system reliability, peripheral emulation mimics continuous connection of device to host. Real-time status LED indicators provide visual confirmation of port activity between an active host and each connected peripheral device. The 1” (2.5 cm) high, quarter rack width enclosure of both the FOX USB Extender Plus transmitter and receiver allow rack mounting or discreet installation beneath a table or inside a lectern.
