Aegis Electronic Group, Inc. Distributing Icron Technologies’ USB 3.0 Spectra™ Extenders

Icron’s newest channel partner supplies extension solutions for USB 3.0 machine vision cameras

Burnaby, British Columbia – August 19, 2015 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, is pleased to announce that Aegis Electronic Group, Inc., a distributor and technical support provider of industrial cameras, components and modified integrated system solutions, broadens its machine vision product portfolio by distributing Icron’s USB 3.0 extender series: the 15 meter USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3001-15 active extension cable and the 100 meter USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3022 fiber extender system.

For over 25 years, Aegis has specialized in the distribution, integration and support of imaging solutions for machine vision, medical, video conferencing and other applications. Aegis offers a diverse selection of leading USB 3.0 industrial cameras from Basler, Lumenera, NET, Sentech and XIMEA; all of which have validated interoperability with Icron’s Spectra extenders.

Icron’s Spectra series of extenders provide the ideal extension solution for all USB 3.0 applications. For short-range applications, the Spectra 3001-15 is a rugged, bus powered active copper cable that extends USB 3.0 peripherals by 15 meters while providing a full 5V, 900mA of current. For long-range extension requirements, Icron’s Spectra 3022 extender system extends USB 3.0 peripherals up to 100 meters and beyond over multimode OM3 fiber optic cabling. Both extenders support full USB 3.0 throughput of 5 Gbps and feature locking connectors per the AIA USB3 Vision specification. Additionally, these extenders come with a two-year warranty and include the ExtremeUSB® suite of features such as transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers) and compatibility with all major operating systems (Windows, OS X and Linux).

“There is still a perception that USB 3.0 cameras can only reach three to five meters in cable distance,” said Nicole Zamora, Director of Compliance & Marketing at Aegis. “With Icron’s ExtremeUSB technology, we can now offer our customers both short-range and long-range extension solutions that work with every USB 3.0 camera brand we carry.”

“Aegis is a well-established distributor for industrial camera applications,” said Glenn Antonelli, Icron’s Vice President of Marketing. “As a leader within this industry, we are pleased to have Aegis as a channel partner, capable of providing complete USB 3.0 camera extension solutions to meet the vision requirements of their customers.”
