Extends and routes any USB 1.1 or 2.0 device across an Ethernet network or point-to-point over one CAT5e (or better) shielded twisted pair cable. Expands the USB routing capabilities of a DigitalMedia™ system. Mounts to a 1-gang electrical box.
The Crestron® USB over Ethernet Network Endpoint Wall Plates with Routing (USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G and USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G) connect USB peripheral devices at multiple locations throughout a home, business, or campus and route them to one local device (such as a PC) up to 100 m (330 ft). The USB signals are transported over the local network and managed through a Crestron control system.
As part of a Crestron DigitalMedia™ system, the USB endpoints provide seamless routing of USB signals alongside video and audio. From any room with a video display, you can switch between several computers, media servers, and game consoles anywhere in the building and control each one using your mouse and keyboard, game controller, or electronic whiteboard.
The USB endpoints expand on DigitalMedia’s built-in USB HID routing abilities, adding enhanced USB connectivity to DM® transmitters, receivers, or switchers without requiring any additional wiring. Simply connect a USB endpoint to the LAN port of a DM transmitter or receiver, or to a port on the local area network.3 Two types of wall plate USB endpoints are available:
USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G - Provides connectivity for up to 4 USB devices (keyboards, whiteboards, mobile devices, etc.) at one location
USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G - Provides connectivity for a single USB host (computer, media server, codec, etc.)
