The Icron USB Rover 1650 targets low-cost commercial end user applications. It provides all the flexibility of extended range USB in a ready-to-use package. The USB Rover 1650 provides support for a single remote device or hub.  Icron USB Rover 1650 products operate over standard Category 5 UTP cable (the same wiring used in Ethernet). The technology behind the product requires no additional software for either the computer or the target devices.

Icron USB Rover 1650 products are composed of two separate units: the Local Extender (LEX) and the Remote Extender (REX). Conventional USB cables are used to connect the LEX unit to the host computer and to connect the remote USB device to the REX unit. Category 5 UTP cabling is used to connect the LEX and REX units over a distance of up to 50 m/164 ft. The Icron USB Rover 1650 is powered from USB and delivers enough power at the remote unit to drive most USB devices.
