Product Overview

The CyberPower USB 2.0 Cable CP-USB-AB-6BK provides up to 480 Mbps transfer rate and connects a printer, scanner, external hard drive, or other USB device to a PC or Mac computer. This black cable measures 6 feet (1.8 meters) and has A to type B connectors. Compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1, the CP-USB-AB-6BK supports as many as 127 devices in a daisy-chain configuration while minimizing crosstalk. The 24K gold-plated copper contacts provide excellent conductivity for accurate high-speed transmissions.

The CP-USB-AB-6BK is hot-pluggable and complies with fully rated cable specifications reducing electromagnetic/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI). Molded construction relieves internal stress at the termination point and provides flex relief at the cable exit. The CP-USB-AB-6BK comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Cable Features

Cable sold by CyberPower Systems covers two main product lines: Universal Cable and Non-Universal Cable. Our cable products provide competitive data transfer rates (as related to Ethernet connectivity), come in a variety of lengths, and are backed by a warranty. Certain families of cable products have common features. For example, our Cat6, Cat5e, and Firewire® cable products feature snagless booted connectors which help prevent them from catching on surfaces. This decreases the likelihood that the connector will break. Many of our USB 2.0 cables are Plug-and-Play ready and will work without requiring technical configuration.

For PCs, Plug and Play is an Intel standard for automatic peripheral configuration.

Differences between Cable Types

CyberPower offers these types of the cable: Category 5e, Category 6, FireWire®, Parallel, and USB 2.0.

Category 5e Cable is a twisted pair cable for carrying signals. It is used in structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet. The cable standard provides performance of up to 100 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet). Cat 5e, which improves upon the crosstalk specifications of Category 5 Cable, also carries signals such as telephony and video.

Category 6 (Cat6) Cable is a standardized cable for Gigabit Ethernet and other network physical layers. It is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e cable standards. Compared with Cat 5 and Cat 5e, Cat 6 features more protection for crosstalk and system noise. The Cat 6 cable standard also provides performance of up to 250 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), 1000BASE-T/1000BASE-TX (Gigabit Ethernet), and 10GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet).

Firewire or FireWire® Cable (IEEE 1394) can transfer data between devices at 100, 200, or 400 Mbit/s. The cable’s maximum length is limited to 14.8 ft. (4.5 meters), but you can have up to 16 cables daisy-chained by using active repeaters, external hubs, or internal hubs. The original release of IEEE 1394-1995 is now known as Firewire 400.

Parallel Cable
Parallel cables connect parallel printers, scannes, and other peripherals to your computer.

USB 2.0 Cable
The fastest USB cables available today, USB 2.0 cables connect your high-speed USB peripherals to your computer.

What Is a Universal Serial Bus (USB)?

A Universal Serial Bus (USB) connects computers and peripherals. The USB replaces the different kinds of serial and parallel port connectors with one standardized plug and port combined. You can use a USB with various devices, including those for digital photography, digital imaging, PC-telephony, video conferencing, and others.

The primary types of USB connectors are USB 3.0 (SuperSpeed), USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed), and USB 1.1.The USB Implementers Forum, Inc. (USB-IF) provides detailed information about USB connectors.

USB-Compliant Products
Compliance testing conducted by the USB-IF helps manufacturers measure how well their products match USB specification. Products tested and certified by the USB-IF will work together. For more details, visit the USB Compliance Program page.

About the USB Implementers Forum, Inc.

The USB Implementers Forum, Inc. (USB-IF) is a non-profit corporation founded by the group of companies that developed the Universal Serial Bus (USB) specification. The USB-IF serves as a support organization and forum for the advancement and adoption of USB technology. The Forum facilitates the development of high-quality compatible USB peripherals (USB devices), promotes the benefits of USB, and shares information about the quality of products that have passed compliance testing.
