USB Extenders • Setup Guide

This guide provides basic instructions for an experienced technician to install and operate the Extron USB Extenders.

The USB Extender Series includes the USB Extender Tx/Rx, AAP Tx/Rx, and Decora® Tx/Rx. They are USB transmitter and receiver pairs that extend the usable distance of USB 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 standards with data transfer rates up to 480 Mbp and data transmission up to 450 ft (135 m) with standard Category 5/5e/6/6e/7 cable.

The rack mountable Tx/Rx, AAP mountable Tx/Rx, and Decora Tx/Rx models can be mixed.

Mount the USB Extenders

The USB Extender series includes transmitters and receivers in three form factors to provide a variety of mounting options including:

zz USB Extender Tx/Rx in quarter rack width, 3 inch deep, 1 inch high metal enclosureszz USB Extender AAP Tx/Rx fordouble-spaceArchitectural Adapter Plate openings

zz USB Extender D (Decora) Tx/Rx forone-gangwall box or mud ring mounting

Choose the appropriate mounting location and install the USB Extender transmitter and receiver following instructions supplied with the mounting kit. If the rear panel connectors will be covered after mounting, make all connections prior to permanently mounting a USB Extender.

UTP or STP CAT5 or better cable:

Terminate both ends identically, in accordance with either the TIA/EIA T 568A or the TIA/EIA T 568B wiring standard.

1.Connect the external power supply to the receiver.

The power LED (A) on the receiver lights when power is applied.

2.Connect power to the transmitter depending upon the power source.

zz If using an external supply the power LED (A) of the transmitter lights when power is properly applied. The Link LED (B) on both the transmitter and receiver also lights to indicate proper link cable connection, or

zz If using a computer USB port to power the transmitter, the transmitter Power and Link LEDs do not light until after the laptop or PC is powered and booted up. The receiver Link LED lights once the transmitter is powered.
