Judy Leger, Business Solutions Manager of Vision System Design, congrats Newnex for being honored with this innovation award which was developed to recognize the top products and solutions by a panel of reputable third-party expert judges within the machine vision and automation imaging industries.
FireNEX™-10G is the world's first USB 3.1 Gen 2 extender that is capable of repeating USB 3.1 SuperSpeed 10 Gbps signal for up to 300 meters and USB 3.1 SuperSpeed 5 Gbps signal for up to 500 meters over a fiber optic cable. The far-end unit provides two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports that support either a single channel of USB 3.1 Gen 2 10 Gbps signal or two channels of USB 3.1 Gen 1 5 Gbps signal at the same time.
