Anaheim, California (July 21, 2021) - Extron is pleased to announce the immediate availability of USB-A male to female optical cables that extend USB 3.2 signals and power over distances up to 65 feet. The cables support a SuperSpeed USB data rate of 5 Gbps and deliver 5 V and up to 900 mA of power to the USB peripheral device. The ultra-thin 0.24” (6 mm) diameter and narrow bend radius allows for installation in tight spaces, including plenum air spaces. USBA Pro Plenum Series cables are ideal for professional applications that require reliable cable connection between the USB host and USB peripheral devices over long distances of up to 65 feet (19.8 meters).

“Customers want a reliable, high-performance cable that extends USB data and power between hosts and peripheral devices,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Extron. “USBA Pro Plenum cables transfer data at up to 5 Gbps and deliver 4.5 watts of power to peripherals up to 65 feet away.”

The USBA Pro Plenum Series offers the benefits of fiber optics with the simplicity of traditional copper extension cables. Each unidirectional cable is terminated with a male USB-A plug for the host and a female USB-A connector for peripheral device connection. The cable draws power from the connected USB host computer, and a blue LED on the female USB-A connector provides visual status notification of host power presence.
