Newnex USB Extension for the Intel RealSense D400 Series Camera

by Stuart Berry March 06, 2018



Newnex have tested three different ways to extend the connection range for Intel's new RealSense D435 Camera. These RealSense depth cameras, the D415 and the D435, can add 3D capabilities to any device or machine. They both come USB-powered and are capable of processing depth in real time, thanks to the new RealSense vision processor D4.

Newnex provide three types of extension for these cameras:

Passive Cable up to 5m

Active Repeater Cable up to 20m

Fiber Optic Extender up to 100m

They work indoors and outdoors in any lighting environment, so they can be used for almost any machine that needs a depth camera. For example, these could be used with drones with AR/VR features.

Accoding to Intel, the cameras' target audiences aren't just developers and manufacturers, but also makers and educators, since they're easy to use and will work as soon as you plug them in. Also, it comes with Intel's RealSense SDK 2.0, which is now a cross-platform, open source software development kit.

The D415 and the D435, (the one shown in the video), are now available. D415 has a narrow field of view and a rolling shutter that scans its environment from one side to the other to take an image. It works best when dealing with small objects and anything that needs precise measurements. D435, in contrast, has a wider field of view and has a global shutter that takes images all at once. That makes it ideal for capturing depth perception of objects in motion and for covering large areas, since it minimizes blind spots.
