  • To break the 3 meter practical length barrier of USB 3.0 with assured reliability, FireNEXuLINK-S series was developed to extend USB 3.0 A to B signal up to 20 meters with custom options available for lengths and connector selections.

    Unlike other USB 3.0 extension cables, FireNEXuLINK-S provides a A to B single-cable extension solution for USB SuperSpeed 5Gbps by embedding repeating module(s) in between the cable. With USB 2.0 backward compatibility and bus powered feature, FireNEXuLINK-S is the ideal solution for Video Conferencing, Machine Vision, Medical Imaging and many other fields.

    FireNEXuLINK-S was awarded a 2015 Vision System Design Innovation Prize.
