Vision TC3-USPTP Converts the USB signal to run over a twisted-pair cable also known commonly as “CAT5” or “Ethernet” this allows the signal to travel up to 100m on CAT5e, or 150m on CAT6. The USB input cable can be up to 5m long and the output cable can be as long as 10m.
As part of the Techconnect family of products teh Vision TC3-USBTP comes with a transmitter in the form of a modified USB-B module that can be fix it into place on any Techconnect TC3 face plate.
A power supply is included which connects to the receiver. For shorter cables this external power may not be necessary, but many interactive display devices only work reliably if they receive full power USB.
A new feature of the Vision TC3-USBTP is that it has two LED lights which help installers trouble-shoot issues. One light confirms connection with the other end, and the other shows data transfer.
As well as interactive whiteboard and flat-panel applications, the Vision Techconnect TC3-USBTP can be used for all other other USB devices which work on USB 2.0 such as printers and webcams.
