Features & Applications

The XTENDEX™ USB IP Extender allows five USB peripheral devices to be connected anywhere on a wired or wireless LAN, while eliminating the need for locally-attached host PCs. Software drivers are loaded onto a host PC or server, enabling remote devices to communicate with the host, without changing existing application software. USB peripheral devices can be centrally managed and monitored from a remote server or PC via an IP address.

USB-IP is ideal for retailers--relocating the host PC to a back office or other remote location allows for smaller point-of-sale stations, centralized management, reduced IT support and instant system redundancy. Kiosk, ATM or pay-at-the-pump manufacturers can eliminate the PC inside the enclosure, reducing concerns of extreme changes in temperature or humidity. The USB-IP unit is also useful for restaurant kitchens, access control systems, industrial automation or any environment that is volatile, not secure or where having an onsite PC is not practical.
