Icron Technologies and NET New Electronic Technology GmbH Validate USB3 Vision Interoperability

Icron’s USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3022 extends NET’s 3iCube USB 3.0 camera series operation to 100 meters

Burnaby, British Columbia – May 28, 2013 Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, and NET New Electronic Technology GmbH, one of the world’s leading suppliers of state-of-the-art, digital and analog cameras and camera components, confirmed today joint product interoperability between NET’s 3iCube USB 3.0 camera series and Icron’s 100m fiber based USB extender, the USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3022, both of which are USB3 Vision compliant.

USB 3.0 cameras are rapidly increasing in popularity for machine vision applications due to their desirable blend of speed, resolution and affordability when compared to other camera interfaces; however USB 3.0 cable reach is typically limited to just a few meters, causing installation issues when longer distances are required.  Icron’s Spectra 3022 extender solution breaks through this distance restriction enabling USB 3.0 machine vision cameras, such as the 3iCube series from NET, to operate normally over distances up to 100m.

“USB 3.0 offers a lot of potential as a machine vision camera interface,” stated Thomas Huber, Managing Director and CTO at NET. “Our 3iCube series features up to 10 megapixels and 24-bit true color. Distance was the only limitation until the Spectra 3022 enabled 100 meters reach.”

“NET produces exceptionally high quality USB 3.0 machine vision cameras,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “We are very pleased to add the 3iCube camera series to our ExtremeUSB® Vision Interoperability program; providing our mutual customers the confidence of a validated USB3 Vision compliant solution with full robust performance over distances that far exceed the USB 3.0 specification.”
