The USB 2.0 Server makes it possible for USB printers (including multi-function printers), USB scanners, USB hard drives and other types of USB devices to be used and shared by PCs and Macs on a network. It is ideal for home office, small office or classroom use. For the observatory, it is an ideal choice where the demands of imaging require the higher performance of USB 2.0 vs. USB 1.1.
The USB 2.0 Server supports both Ethernet and Wi-Fi networks — making it easy to print to a USB printer or connect to other USB devices from a Wi-Fi based laptop.
This USB 2.0 Server is being offered for those of you whose newer imaging equipment may benefit from the higher speed of USB 2.0. Its operation is the same as our Four Port USB Server. It gains the speed of USB 2.0, but sacrifices two USB ports in the process. Which you choose will depend on your particular setup.
