PHORCE-RE USB 3.1/3.0 optical fibre extender

Back to Phrontier Technologies

Designed to extend USB 3.0 connections beyond the current 3 metre cable length, Phrontier Technologies offer their PHORCE USB 3.0 fibre extender cable series. The extenders are available in two versions with four models in each - USB 3.0 Optical Fibre Extender, which requires a PCIe card installed the PC, and the Standalone USN 3.1 Gen 1, which does not.

The PHORCE USB 3.1/3.0 enables Superspeed USB 3.0 connections beyond the current capacity of copper cables and consists of two modules: a PHORCE PC card which is intalled into the PCIe slots of the host PC and a PHORCE box located at a remote site of the application. The transparent operation of these modules enable the connected remote USB devices to appear local on the host PC.

The PHORCE remote box provides two USB3.0 root hub ports that comply with USB3.0 specs and are backwards compatible with USB2.0 devices and platforms.

Convenient features include Plug-and-play capacity, low-power consumption and a compact, robust design and the ability for the product to be deployed into existing fibre network without opening walls or laying in trenches
