USB 3.0Optical Fiber Extender


2-Port USB 3.0 Optical Fiber Repeater Extension System

FireNEX-5000H™ is a 2-Port USB 3.0 Optical Fiber Extender that is capable of not only repeating/extending USB 3.0 signal with 5 Gbps SuperSpeed bandwidth for up to 300 meters, but can also deliver up to 15W of bus power to a device from a maximum of 100 meters away.

The FireNEX-5000H™ utilizes a specifically designed hybrid optical fiber to transfer data and power at the same time, taking full advantage of optical fiber's light weight, EMI free, and easy cable management with power delivery feature.

FireNEX-5000H was awarded a 2016 Vision System Design Innovators Award.
