PureLink Introduces 18G Fiber Cable for 4K/UHD Applications

Company's EZH2 Offers Higher Resolution HDMI 2.0 Connectivity at Lower Price

PureLink, a global provider of advanced UHD video signal management solutions, announced today the availability of its new EZH2 Integrated Active Fiber Optic Cables, as part of its HDTools line of switchers, converters, amplifiers and extenders. These new fiber cables support HDMI 2.0 technology and are HDR (High Dynamic Range), HDCP 2.2 and CEC compliant. The cables are available in a variety of lengths, from 10 to 100 meters, and support resolutions of 4K/60 4:4:4 at 18 Gbps.

PureLink has been a pioneer in the engineering and manufacturing of matrix switching systems since its inception in 2001. The company not only invented the world's first digital matrix switcher, but also produced the first HDCP, and modular cross-platform digital matrix switchers. Within its HDTools line are a variety of new HDMI 2.0 systems and components offering high bandwidth 18Gbps content pass-through. The EZH2 cables were developed to provide reliable solutions in addressing next-generation integration requirements, with the expanded bandwidth necessary for UHD quality signal management to deliver a more seamless overall transition to 4K connectivity.

With plug and play capabilities the EZH2 requires no additional external power supply, and is immune to electrical noise in the form of EMI or RFI disruptions. It is Plenum-rated, with special insulation that has low smoke and low flame characteristics for installation in any air handling space. Designed with a flexible jacket its rugged construction means that it can easily be pulled through conduits and sustain difficult turns for quick, versatile installations.

"The industry has been clamoring for an HDMI 2.0, UHD, 4K 60 4:4:4 transport medium for some time,," said Kevin Kang, PureLink's Technical Sales Director. "The EZH2 offers real time EDID and HDCP handshake with no signal attenuation," he stated. "It protects the signal against EMI and RFI to ensure uninterrupted performance and, with its commercial grade plenum jacket, it is ideal for an in-wall installation environment," added Mr. Kang. "It delivers ultimate reliability and convenience for an easy-in, easy-out fiber transport solution," he concluded.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
