The USB 2.0 specification limits the length of a cable segment between the host or hub and device to 5 metres. This USB 2.0 active extension cable takes the signal from the first device and resynchronizes and retimes the signal so it can be transmitted another 5 metres without any loss of data. You can daisy chain a maximum of three active extension cables to give you a maximum extension length of 15 metres.
