Icron's USB Rover 2850 (00-00312 or RV2850) extension system is a 2-port USB extender, ideal for use with USB peripherals such as keyboards, mice, interactive white boards, and game controllers without the need for external power adapters.

The USB Rover 2850 product is 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 the remote USB device to the REX unit. Cat 5e UTP cabling is used to connect the LEX and REX units over a distance of up to 85m (279 ft)*.

USB Rover products operate over standard solid core Cat 5e UTP cable (the same wiring used in Ethernet). The USB Rover 2850 uses technology ideal for extending USB peripherals without the need for additional software for either the computer or the target devices.

* Up to 40m for all USB devices; 85 meters is achievable for most low powered HID USB devices.
