Active Extension Cable lets you use USB 3.0 devices over longer distances

With a LINDY USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable you can use high speed USB devices up to 11m away. The cable’s plug and play capability ensures that it is simple and fast to use, providing flexibility for multiple uses and reliability for permanent setups.

USB 3.0 cables are only certified to lengths up to 5m, after this the signal becomes too weak and unreliable causing drop outs which can make devices or software running over it to crash. LINDY’s active USB cables feature built-in electronics, which regenerate the USB 3.0 signal to support longer distances.

The LINDY USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable comes in two lengths 5m and 10m. Two 5m cables can be daisy chained together, whilst the 10m cable also includes a handy connection for attaching a power supply to voltage hungry peripherals. By using a USB 3.0 cable, up to 1.2m in length, to connect the device a total length of over 11m can be achieved.

This latest cable is an upgrade to our existing USB 2.0 Active extension cable that is one of our best sellers. Ideal for professional or home use, our active cables are used to solve a multitude of problems from tethering a camera over long distances in a photographer’s studio to enabling storage devices to be hidden.

Backwards compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices, the LINDY USB 3.0 Active Extension has a Type A USB Male to Type A USB Female connection and supports transfer rates up to 5Gbps.
