Hall Research introduced a new addition to its Javelin series active optical cables: the CUSB3-AP. Available in lengths of 15m, 30m and 50m, CUSB-AP cables support transparent extension of USB 3.1 Gen1 Super-Speed at data rates of up to 5Gbps. CUSB-AP cables are compatible with virtually all USB 3.0 and 3.1 Gen1 devices, and they offer a solution for extending 4K videoconferencing cameras, video capture, docking stations and other high-speed data communication. They do not work with USB 2.0 or 1.1 devices, as they connect specifically to the USB 3.0 pins of the source. The cable is a light-weight hybrid of fiber and copper, and is plenum rated to ensure compliance with modern building codes. The small cable ends can be pulled through most conduit, and no additional power is required, making the CUSB-AP a true plug-and-play solution.
