PRESS RELEASE

IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH (Obersulm, Germany) announces the introduction of extra long USB connecting cables to its accessories range. The new cables are 8 m in length and designed for industrial machine vision applications. They provide the same transmission reliability as conventional 5 m 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 5 m cables are simply too short. Users previously had to “extend” the cables using active components. The new cables now allow covering distances up to 8 m in a simple and cost-effective way.

The particularly high quality of the cables ensures according to IDS that the cables provide the required transmission reliability up to the full data rate of 480 MB/sec despite their long length. At the same time, they also supply power to the cameras without any problems.

The 8 m cables are available from now and offer many new application possibilities for the broad range of USB uEye camera models. The new USB connecting 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.
