The Gefen EXT-CAT5-7000 is built to extend two analog monitors, one USB-equipped computer peripheral (such as a scanner or printer), one PS/2-based keyboard/mouse, two audio outputs (for two sets of speakers, for example), one audio input (for microphone or similar audio device) and one RS-232 device (like a touchscreen). The EXT-CAT5-7000 can support a 4-port USB hub in the case that multiple USB-based computer devices need to be operated at the extended location.

Designed to offer unprecedented flexibility with computer peripherals, EXT-CAT5-7000 works with all CRT and LCD computer monitors, USB peripherals, PS/2 keyboards and mice, RS-232 and audio devices (Mac or PC).

How the Gefen EXT-CAT5-7000 works:

The EXT-CAT5-7000 uses a sender and receiver methodology to transmit signals from the computer to the workstation. The sender unit connects to the computer using the cables provided. The receiver unit connects to the two monitors, keyboard/mouse, USB, RS232 and audio devices up to 330-feet away. Multiple CAT5 extension cables (up to 4), sold separately, connect the sender to the receiver and thus the computer to the extended workstation. Both the sender and the receiver units must be connected to a power supply. When fully powered and operational, the units extend all signals efficiently and reliably.

* NOTE: If you use a patch panel or patchcords both the cables and the patch have to be shielded.
