The LINDY USB 3.0 fiber Optic Extender supports far longer distances than standard copper cables, using standard "off the shelf" LC duplex fiber, whilst retaining SuperSpeed transfer rates of up to 5Gbps. The Extender is a two part hardware solution comprising of a transmitter that connects directly to your computer and receiver that connects to the USB peripheral. Since the Extender uses fiber optic cable this rules out the possibility of any electrical interference on the extended signal.
Ideal for remote desktop links, industrial control, surveillance and external storage applications the extender gives long distance access to many devices.
The chart below is an example of the achievable distances using the different grades of fiber:
62.5/125µm OM1 : 100m
50/125µm OM2 : 200m
50/125µm OM3 : 400m
