Additionally, both models come with 2-year warranties and will be AIA USB3 Vision compliant upon the standard’s release.
These USB 3.0 extenders are ideal for Machine Vision and security camera applications, and have been successfully tested with USB 3.0 cameras from the leading industrial camera manufacturers including IDS Image Development Systems, Point Grey Research, NET New Electronic Equipment, and Ximea.
“While Icron’s new USB 3.0 Spectra products support any application requiring USB 3.0 extension, these models were designed with USB3 Vision in mind,” said Robert Haefling, Icron Technologies President & CEO. “The performance and industrial design of these new products, including metal housing, locking USB and power connectors, and optional mounting rack are all features required by today’s Machine Vision industry.”
