The CUSB3-AP cables are members of Hall Research’s Javelin™ family of active optical video and USB cables. The CUSB3-AP cables are used to extend USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen1) Super-Speed signals at data rates of up to 5 Gbps. They support transparent extension of USB 3.1 Gen1 and are compatible with all USB 3.0 devices including 4K USB 3.0 cameras and USB 3.0 memory devices. They are offered at standard lengths of 15, 30, and 50 meters (50, 100 , and 164 ft).

The cables are light-weight and are constructed using a hybrid of fiber and copper. Fiber optics offer high immunity to EMI and RFI noise for trouble free operation. The cable uses minimal power and does not require any additional power supply. The USB host connection provides 5v power for operation and the cable sends 5v via its copper wires to the remote (device) end. The cables are constructed using Plenum (CMP) Rated jacket material to ensure compliance with modern building codes. The small cable ends can be easily pulled through most conduits (a pulling sock is recommended).

CUSB3-AP cables are compatible with virtually all USB 3.0 and 3.1 Gen1 devices, and are a perfect solution for extending 4K videoconferencing cameras, video capture, docking stations, and other high-speed data communications. Note that the CUSB-AP cables only extend USB 3.0 signals.

These cables are not recommended for use with USB 2.0 or 1.1 devices.
