The active cable is bus powered over USB, featuring an integrated amplification chipset to ensure the SuperSpeed USB 3.1 (Gen. 1) performance over very long distances. The combination of nickel-plated connectors, bare copper conductors as well as dense shielding made of foil & braid provides superior cable performance with an error-free data transmission.

The active USB 3.1 (Gen. 1) / USB 3.0 connection cable with USB Type A male to USB Type B male offers full performance with SuperSpeed data transfer rate of up to 5 Gbps for all USB-enabled devices thanks to nickel-plated connections.
The cable is fully backwards compatible with Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices.
The USB 3.0 / 3.1 (Gen. 1) technology includes the "SuperSpeed" (SS) transfer mode, which allows data to be transferred at speeds of up to 5 Gbps (ca. 300 MB/s). This is approximately ten times the transfer speed of USB 2.0. Use this cable for the fastest possible transfer speed between your computer and external devices.
The active cable features a standard USB type A connector at one end and a standard type B connector at the other end.
For example, the Type A connector can be connected to a computer while the Type B connector fits into any device with a Type B socket.
Many printers, servers, external hard drives and digital photography devices feature Type B connectors.
If you connect a computer with USB 2.0 to a printer with USB 3.0 using a USB 3.0 cable, you will achieve USB 2.0 transfer speeds.
If all three components (computer, cable and printer) implement USB 3.0 / 3.1 (Gen. 1) technology, the USB 3.0 / 3.1 (Gen. 1) transfer rate can be achieved.
The USB cable with nickel-plated connectors is very robust and causes no signal loss, even when plugged in and out frequently.
