FireNEX™-uLINK-C

SuperSpeed USB 5Gbps A to C Active Cable

In response to the growing need for extending connection range for USB 3.1 Type-C devices, FireNEX™-uLINK-C series is developed to extend SuperSpeed USB 5Gbps signal for your USB-C devices up to 30 meters.

FireNEX™-uLINK-C provides a USB Type-A to Type-C one-cable extension solution by embedding a repeater module between the copper cable. The bus power feature simplifies the extension connection goes directly from host USB port to device socket without any external power input. FireNEX™-uLINK-C also features with USB 2.0 backward compatibility, making it ideal solutions for applications such as Machine Vision, Pro AV, Medical Imaging and many other fields.

Every FireNEX™-uLINK-C cable has been meticulously made and tested to meet the requirements for best signal integrity and highest reliability when compared to any other USB 3.1 active repeater cables on the market.
