Extron is now taking orders for the high-performance USBC Pro Series hybrid optical-copper USB-C cables. The cable reliably transmits video, audio, data, and power long distances. These USB cables support data rates up to 5 Gbps, 4K/30 DisplayPort video, and audio signals simultaneously, as well as facilitate power delivery up to 60 watts. For easy integration, this ultra-flexible cable with a diameter of 0.26” (6.5 mm) has a narrow bend radius that allows for installation in tight spaces.
“Extending USB as well as a variety of other signals between hosts and peripheral devices has required multiple cable runs,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Extron. “The USBC Pro Series packs DisplayPort video, audio, and data transmissions, as well as power, onto a single, active optical USB-C cable while maintaining full signal integrity and providing reliable operation in any mission-critical application.”
The USBC Pro Series offers the benefits of fiber optics with the simplicity of traditional copper cables, providing the best combination of price and performance. The cables use glass, multimode optical fiber to transmit bidirectional USB 3.2 data, 4K/30 DisplayPort video, and embedded audio signals.
