Icron and Sensor Technologies Confirm Joint Product Interoperability Between USB 3.0 Cameras and USB 3.0 Spectra 3022

Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, and Sensor Technologies Co., Ltd. (Sentech), an expert in manufacturing industrial cameras, today confirmed joint product interoperability between Sentech’s USB 3.0 cameras and Icron’s 100m fiber based USB extender, the USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3022.

USB 3.0 cameras feature high-resolution, vibrant colors, fast frame rates and affordability, all of which are driving industry adoption in machine applications. However, USB 3.0 cable lengths are typically limited to three meters which may cause installation challenges when the camera is located away from the computer. Icron’s Spectra 3022 extender resolves this distance barrier by enabling USB 3.0 machine vision cameras, such as those from Sentech, to operate at full performance up to 100 meters.

Sentech’s CMOS USB 3.0 camera is available with a color or monochrome CCD, in a 1/2.5″ CMOS sensor with a 5MP resolution and 14 frames-per-second. This camera series is compatible with all standard industry drivers, and comes with the Sentech Viewing Software and SDK.

“We are pleased to validate Icron’s Spectra 3022 as a reliable distance extender for our USB 3.0 cameras,” stated Koji Isozaki, Sales Manager at Sentech. “Our distributors and customers have come to expect the best-in-quality from Sentech products, and now their vision solutions can reach much longer distances without compromising performance or reliability.”

“Sentech has been developing high quality vision solutions for over 20 years, serving a wide variety of market applications including industrial, medical, scientific, military, and traffic,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “Throughout the validation process we were quite impressed with the performance of Sentech’s cameras and are very pleased to participate with them in our ExtremeUSB® Vision Interoperability program. No matter the application, customers can have confidence in using Sentech’s USB 3.0 cameras over distances up to 100 meters.”
