Description

** U3CAT6 is discontinued and the CUSB3-AP* is recommended as a substitution for the U3CAT6. **


The U3CAT6 is an extender system composed of two units – U3CAT6-L and U3CAT6-R – used to extend USB 3.1 Gen 1 and Gigabit LAN at a distance of up to 100m on a single CAT6a or CAT7 cable. This allows users to extend high-speed USB peripherals far beyond the 3m cable limit specification for USB 3.1.
