20m (65 ft) USB 3.1 Gen1 Hybrid AOC, Type-A to Micro-B, high flex


The USB 3.1 (Gen1, 5 Gbps) Hybrid Active Optical cables resolve one limitation of pure optical cables which cannot supply power to the end device.
On the basis of the use of a thin profile (4.0 mm) optical fiber as the transmission medium, the Hybrid AOC integrates copper to supply power both the active components of the cable and the device(s), in the case they are bus powered.
The USB 3.1 Hybrid AOC can extend the USB 3.x bus up to 50 meters or 164 ft, with a maximum bandwidth speed of 5 Gbps and features a Micro-B connector with screw lock support, making it ideal for machine vision, industrial and robotic applications.
