Tripp Lite's High-Speed USB 2.0 Active A-B cable overcomes the 5-meter USB distance limitation with an active repeater in the middle of the cable. Now USB printers and other devices can be located up to 36 ft. (11m) away from the computer in a single, non-daisy chainable run, with no need for extension cables. Full 480Mbps speed is maintained along the entire length of the cable. Backward compatible to USB 1.1. Plug-and-play, Windows and MAC compatible. Bus-powered, requiring no external power supply.
