Now you no longer have to be limited by the standard length of a USB cable. This active USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbps) cable, better known as a USB 3.0 cable, allows you to place your USB Type-B peripherals where they are needed, up to 5 meters away from your computer.
Now you can put your USB devices, such as portable hard drives and external video capture devices, in a location that allows you to make better use of your workspace. This 5-meter cable has a built-in equalizer chip that provides a reliable connection, without signal loss, beyond the 3-meter length limit of standard USB 3.0 cables.
Connect a USB Type-B device (hard drive enclosure, port replicator, video capture device, etc.) to a USB 3.0-equipped computer, beyond the 3-meter length limit of standard cables.
