Sentech and Icron Technologies Announce USB 3.0 Product Interoperability

Icron showcases complete machine vision solution with Sentech’s USB 3.0 camera and ExtremeUSB® extender at the VISION Show from November 4-6 at Messe Stuttgart, Germany

Burnaby, British Columbia – October 21, 2014 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, and Sentech Co. Ltd., an expert in manufacturing industrial cameras, today announced joint product interoperability between Sentech’s USB 3.0 Compact 28mm Cube Model camera and Icron’s 15-meter active extension cable, the USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3001-15.

Sentech’s USB 3.0, compact 28mm cube camera, is available in color or monochrome and comes with a 1/2.5″ CMOS sensor. This affordable and compact camera supports 5MP to VGA scalable resolution at 14-30 frames per second. Equipped with low light extended integration and complex noise reduction technology, the Sentech USB 3.0 camera is compatible with all standard industry drivers.

Icron’s Spectra 3001-15 is a bus powered copper cable that extends USB 3.0 at 5Gbps 15 meters while providing a full 5V, 900mA of current and features a locking connector per AIA USB3 Vision specification. Previously, Sentech had validated interoperability with Icron’s long-range 100-meter USB 3.0 Spectra 3022 fiber based extender system, now Sentech customers have extension solutions for both short- and long-range USB 3.0 applications. Both Spectra 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 including Windows® 8.

A demonstration of Sentech’s USB 3.0 Compact 28mm camera and Icron’s Spectra extenders will be part of a feature showcase at the Icron Technologies booth (Hall 1, Stand I65) during the VISION show at Messe Stuttgart, Germany from November 4th to 6th.
