Product Recommendation: Alysium USB 3.1 Gen 1 Active Optical Cable

One critical component that significantly impacts machine vision performance and reliability is connectivity infrastructure. Specifically, the limited cable length possible with USB 3 poses a significant challenge for long-distance data transmission. In addition to our own successful in-house testing, several customers have reported excellent results with the Alysium USB 3.1 Gen 1 Active Optical Cable:

  • Extended Cable Length: Cable lengths of up to 50 meters possible without loss of signal integrity or data transfer rates
  • Stability: Optimized for USB3.1 Gen1 (5 Gbps), the cable offers faster data transfer rates (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and 5 times faster than GigE) and reduced latency in 24/7 industrial applications.
  • Power Delivery: Up to 4.5W of power delivery through the same cable, without extra power on host side
  • Designed for Machine Vision Applications: The optical cables excel in high-temperature environments, offering the reliability and stability required for continuous, uninterrupted operation.

Alysium's Active Optical Cable is compatible with The Imaging Source's 38 Series, 37 Series and 33 Series USB 3 industrial cameras.
