GigE cable lengths now available for USB 3.0
USB 3.0 is the perfect camera interface to transmit detailed real-time images without losing data at very high speed. Previously, GigE interfaces were the right option to bridge large distances between PC and camera. As of now, IDS offers a budget-priced solution: USB 3.0 cables up to 50 meters.
"The optical fiber cable is immune to electromagnetic interference, and a bending radius of 20 mm is possible," says Dominik Schillinger, product manager at IDS, "this active cable is compatible with USB 2.0 cameras, which is not often to be found in the market. Screw-on metal housing for plug-in connectors and a highly-flexible drag chain cable meet the high demands of our customers."
