Extron releases SuperSpeed 5Gbps USB-A 3.2 optical extension cables
Extron has released USB-A male-to-female optical cables that extend USB 3.2 signals and power over distances of up to 65’.
The cables support a SuperSpeed USB data rate of 5Gbps and deliver 5V and up to 900mA of power to the USB peripheral device. The ultra-thin 0.24” diameter and narrow bend radius allows for installation in tight spaces, including plenum air spaces.
USBA Pro Plenum Series cables are ideal for professional applications that require reliable cable connection between the USB host and USB peripheral devices over long distances of up to 65’.
“Customers want a reliable, high-performance cable that extends USB data and power between hosts and peripheral devices,” Extron vice president of worldwide sales Casey Hall says.
“USBA Pro Plenum cables transfer data at up to 5Gbps and deliver 4.5W of power to peripherals up to 65’ away.”
The USBA Pro Plenum Series offers the benefits of fibre optics with the simplicity of traditional copper extension cables.
Each unidirectional cable is terminated with a male USB-A plug for the host and a female USB-A connector for peripheral device connection. The cable draws power from the connected USB host computer and a blue LED on the female USB-A connector provides visual status notification of host power presence.
