CEI & XIMEA Confirm USB 3.0 Accessories Interoperability

CEI’s new 25 meter cable fixes the hole in the offering for medium range distances of USB 3.0 cables, thus equipping customers with the option to enjoy proven benefits of USB3 SuperSpeed technology.

Components Express Incorporated, a leader in Machine Vision cabling technology, and XIMEA GmbH, a leading international manufacturer of high end cameras, are pleased to announce (http://bitly.com/1Msj1Uz) a very favorable interoperability report from testing CEI’s USB3 BitMaxx 25M Extended distance cable and XIMEA’s USB3.0 camera product line.

The throughput achieved by CEI’s 25M BitMaxx cable compared very favorably with standard length benchmark cables. XIMEA USB 3.0 cameras have proven to be highly compatible as they worked with shorter and longer CEI cables.

“The utilization of pre-emphasis and equalization allows CEI to counteract the effects of attenuation over the distance of the cable and achieve a length comparable to other high speed vision systems. This enables CEI to provide an extended length solution addressing the limitations of standard passive USB3.0 cabling,” said Steve Mott, Vice President of Components Express.

Both XIMEA and CEI conducted the testing separately to achieve duplex confirmation and provide to customers the confidence of a robust and reliable solution for their USB 3.0 applications when extended distances are required. Further features include USB3 Vision compliant locking, adding secure connection important for machine vision.

“CEI’s new 25 meter cable fixes the hole in the offering for medium range distances of USB 3.0 cables, thus equipping customers with the option to enjoy proven benefits of USB3 SuperSpeed technology while having industrial cameras still further away from the processing backend,” stated Max Larin, CEO of XIMEA. “We are happy to see more choice that covers the inevitable demand for higher bandwidth than that provided by GigE, being more cost effective than Camera Link, which now can be satisfied by the combination of USB3 Vision cameras from XIMEA armed with BitMaxx cable from Components Express.”
