ProAVNews: Extron Now Shipping! SuperSpeed USB-A Optical Cables for Reliable Extension of USB Data and Power

Extron is pleased to announce the immediate availability of our revolutionary USBA Pro Plenum Series active, hybrid optical-copper USB-A cables. Available for immediate shipping, the new cables support USB 3.2 signals and are backward compatible with previous USB standards. Engineered for Pro AV, each unidirectional extension cable reliably transmits data and power over long distances. They support a SuperSpeed USB data rate of 5 Gbps and deliver 5 V and up to 900 mA of power to the USB peripheral device. The ultra-thin 0.24" (6 mm) diameter and narrow bend radius allow for installation in tight spaces, including plenum air spaces. These optical-copper extension cables are powered by the host computer, and an LED provides visual notification of host power status. For peripherals that require additional power, the cable includes a pigtail connection for an external power source. USBA Pro Plenum Series cables are available in popular lengths from 15 feet to 65 feet (4.5 meters to 19.8 meters).
