Newnex Machine Vision Cable Solutions

Machine Vision

Machine vision has become a vital technology in the area of manufacturing and quality control owing to the progressing quality demands of manufacturers and customers. Machine vision uses image processing through the use of cameras mounted over production lines in order to visually check products, read, or direct the flow of products and increasingly, guide robots in real time without human intervention.

Experience has shown that, often, distance becomes the first obstacle anyone comes up against during the camera set up. With the recommended length limit for USB 3.0 A to Micro B cable connection of only 1 meter long, plenty of Machine Vision Industry Integrators shy away from upgrading into USB 3.0 cameras. Considering the speed and quality that USB 3.0 Super Speed can deliver, this is very unfortunate. Luckily, with our research and development, Newnex was able to introduce a variety of different lengths for USB 3.0 Machine Vision Industry, providing connectivity solutions from distance as short as a few inches to a set up that requires up to 300 meters in distance!
