The standard communication distance of USB (up to 5 meters) is the drawback of USB. Unfortunately, although USB 3.0 increases the theoretical value of the transfer rate from 480 megabytes to 4800 megabytes, the number of cores in the cable increases from 4 to 9, while the standard communication distance decreases from 5 meters to 3 meters. In other words, as long as the communication distance of USB3.0 exceeds 3 meters, the only effective solution may be optical fiber. This may also be the reason why the USB3.0 specification considers fiber optic communication interfaces.
Like the USB extender that transmits 50 meters with an RJ-45 cable, it is absolutely ineffective for USB 3.0 because it is USB 1.0 or USB 2.0, the basic principle of which is to increase the current strength of the power and signal lines.
Advantages of USB 3.0 fiber optic cable:
BONESTEC’s USB 3.0 fiber optic cable is unmatched in terms of transmission rate. Its information throughput is up to 5 Gbps, more than five times that of USB 2.0. It is particularly suitable for the acquisition, copying and playback of large amounts of real-time data. With this cable, Ultra HD 4K video and large data packets can be transferred to gigabit files in seconds.
2.Ultra-long distance transmission:
Another feature is also the fundamental reason for its selection: while supporting high-speed transmission, the transmission distance has been extended to more than 100 meters, far exceeding the 3-meter extension cable of ordinary copper cables, not to mention the more than 10-meter copper extension cable with serious data loss.
Made from fiber optic materials and featuring a sophisticated industrial design, this is what makes the BONESTEC USB3.0 fiber optic cable inherently superior: superb anti-static immunity to electromagnetic interference and mechanical strength. In particular, its mechanical strength is even comparable to that of copper wire, yet its diameter and weight are less than 1/3 that of traditional copper wire. it is suitable not only for everyday consumer applications, but also for harsh industrial environments, making the data cable a superior carrier for imaging equipment, broadcast TV, and other interference-resistant applications.
