8m USB cables

Share this on social media:

IDS Imaging Development Systems has introduced 8m USB connecting cables to its accessories range. The cables are designed for industrial machine vision applications and provide the same transmission reliability as conventional 5m cables while offering the user much more flexibility. The USB cables are fitted with standard mini-B connectors in both locking and non-locking versions.

For many machine vision applications with USB cameras, the conventional 5m cables are simply too short and cables had to be extended using active components. The IDS cables allow distances up to 8m to be covered in a simple and cost-effective way.

The cables provide high transmission reliability up to a full data rate of 480MB/sec. At the same time, power is also supplied to the cameras.

The 8m cables offer many new application possibilities for the range of USB uEye camera models. The cables are offered for both the compact board-level versions of the LE series and the machine integrable models of the SE and ME series.
