        USB-NX2-REMOTE-1G-W

        USB over Ethernet Network Endpoint Wall, Plate with Routing, Remote, White

        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 and features virtual hub functionality. Mounts to a 1-gang electrical box. 

        Extends any USB 1.1 or 2.0 device up to 330 ft (100 m) point-to-point over one CAT5e (or better) unshielded twisted pair cable. 

        The Crestron® USB over Network Wall Plates with Routing (USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G and USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G) deliver reliable, high‑speed USB signal extension and routing for USB 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 devices throughout a home, business, or campus for distances up to 330 ft (100 m). Featuring Virtual Hub capabilities, five USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G endpoints may simultaneously be connected to a single USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G endpoint. Creating this virtual hub allows numerous USB devices to control a single host device (such as a PC). 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.1 Sync your smartphone, upload photos, and share music and video files with a computer — all from clear across the building.

        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.4 Two types of wall plate USB endpoints are available:

        • USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G - Provides connectivity for up to four 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.)

        The USB endpoints may be used to provide simple, point‑to‑point USB signal extension, either over an Ethernet LAN or a dedicated CAT5e cable.2 At least one remote (device) endpoint (USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G) and one local (host) endpoint (USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G ) are required to form a working system. The endpoints are sold individually to accommodate any system configuration.

        The USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G and USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G mount in an unobstructed North American 1-gang electrical box and are compatible with the USB‑EXT‑DM‑LOCAL and USB‑EXT‑DM‑REMOTE endpoints.

        NOTE: The USB‑NX2‑LOCAL‑1G and USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G route USB signals over an Ethernet network. For simple point‑to‑point USB signal extenders, please refer to the USB over Category Cable Extender Wall Plates (USB‑EXT‑2‑REMOTE‑1G and USB‑EXT‑2‑LOCAL‑1G) or the USB over Category Cable Extenders (USB‑EXT‑2).

        • USB local (host) or remote (device) endpoint sold individually for maximum flexibility
        1. The USB endpoint is engineered to deliver maximum compatibility with the widest possible range of devices. Crestron does not guarantee that all USB devices or hosts are compatible with the USB endpoint. Certain USB devices may require additional driver installation if not directly supported by the computer’s operating system. A web camera may not be used when five or more USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G endpoints are paired. Video from two cameras connected to a USB‑NX2‑REMOTE‑1G may not be viewed on different applications simultaneously. Any 1.0/1.1 devices need a USB hub.
        2. For the LINK connection between the Local and Remote endpoints, as a minimum, use high quality, solid core CAT5e (or better) unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. To comply with the European Directive (CE), Crestron® recommends using high-quality, solid core CAT5e (or better) shielded twisted pair (STP) cable. If connecting either endpoint through a wall jack, a stranded patch cord may be used. The maximum aggregate cable length is 330 ft (100 m) between units. The minimum cable length is 6 ft (1.8 m). Do not connect the LINK ports to an Ethernet LAN or any other network or device, including the USB‑EXT‑2, USB‑EXT‑2‑LOCAL‑1G, and USB‑EXT‑2‑REMOTE‑1G.
        3.  A ferrite bead is provided to reduce or prevent EMI (electromagnetic interference). Crestron recommends installing this ferrite bead on the included 24 VDC power supply cable close to the device.When using a power source other than PoE, Crestron recommends installing this ferrite bead on the power supply cable close to the device.
        4. All USB endpoints must be on the same layer 2 domain as the control system or DigitalMedia system. Follow accepted guidelines for proper installation and configuration of the local area network to ensure optimum performance.
