FSR, a manufacturer of a variety of infrastructure and signal management solutions has expanded its Next Generation Digital Ribbon Cable series to include USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C DR cables designed for most conferencing cameras, hard drives, PCs, laptops or any high-end peripheral devices that use a USB Type-C connector to transfer data. Introduced at InfoComm 2021, these hybrid fibre/copper cables are now shipping.
Offered in 10m and 15m lengths the cables are compatible with both Windows and Apple iOS, can support a 5V/900 mA transfer limit, and deliver a speed of 10Gbps data transfer without signal loss or delay. Each cable is fitted with a discreet black jacket with connector shells labeled HOST and DEVICE to aid in error-free connection. The DR USB Type-C cables deliver superior performance while providing a reliable plug-and-play user experience without the need for software. The cables are plenum rated (type CMP/FT6) and feature enhanced pull strength of 15kg/33lbs. They join FSR’s extensive range of Next Generation Digital Ribbon Cables which includes 4K and 8K versions that utilise a proprietary technology to allow high-speed, high-definition, HDMI signal transmission over distances of up to up to 328 ft. or 100 ft, respectively.
