The Smartronix Rugged USB RepeaterTM (RUR) is a device that allows USB connections to be reliably extended. While USB is a widely used connection, it does suffer from a length limitation of 5 meters (16.4 feet). Many installations need a longer cable run. Each RUR extends a connection between USB host and USB device; and multiple RUR devices can be added end-to-end to provide even more interface distance. The RUR is USB bus powered and requires no external power sources. The product is fully USB 2.0 high-speed compliant and designed to operate in harsh battlefield conditions.
