Remote USB connectivity with Amplicon's new AnywhereUSB

Amplicon is introducing three new feature-packed models to its range of Digi AnywhereUSB devices. The AnywhereUSB is a network-attached USB hub that allows USB devices to connect to a PC by using existing TCP/IP network infrastructure.

Remote USB connectivity with Amplicon's new AnywhereUSB

The AnywhereUSB units connect USB devices anywhere on a wired or wireless Local Area Network, eliminating the need for local host PCs. This is useful in manufacturing lines or any hostile or non-secure environment where having a local PC is neither practical nor permitted. The AnywhereUSB range provide units with either two, five and 14 USB ports, all delivering the same Plug and Play user experience as a local USB port.

Software drivers are loaded onto a PC or server, enabling remote devices to communicate with the host without modifying existing application software. Peripheral devices can be centrally managed and monitored from a remote server or PC via an IP address.

Amplicon's AnywhereUSB range is compatible with bulk or interrupt-type USB devices, for example bar-code scanners, printers, fingerprint scanners, mice, pole displays, card readers, flash drives and security keys. It is an excellent option for networked USB or serial devices in VMware and Microsoft virtualised environments. Watchport/V3 USB camera, Watchport sensors and Edgeport USB-to-serial converters are also fully compatible with AnywhereUSB.
