This is the future and the present in factory automation: functions like presence inspection, defect detection, measurement and more must be highly responsive in real time. Advanced camera and sensor systems must capture increasingly complex information and deliver it with greater clarity. More than ever, machine vision depends on the deep expertise required to connect it all together.
You can improve the performance, robustness and reliability of your machine vision equipment – often at lower system costs – with cables, connectors and cable assemblies from 3M.
Our broad range of machine vision solutions is backed by decades of expertise in signal transmission, as well as electrical and mechanical cable design and technology. And our global presence provides the cable solutions you need are always within reach.
3M machine vision solutions cover three major industry standards for high speed/high density I/O applications.
3M offers a higher functional cable length than any other known USB3 connector solution – more than 10 meters for stationary cables (depending on system requirements) and up to 7 meters for cables tested to repetitive motion. We also provide cables drag chain tested from 10 million to greater than 100 million cycles.

As one of the originators of the Camera Link standard, 3M offers a truly broad selection including Miniature Delta Ribbon (MDR) and Shrunk Delta Ribbon (SDR) boardmount connectors, as well as MDR & SDR cable assemblies for Camera Link and Power over Camera Link (PoCL) cables.
The CoaXPress interface is excellent for longer transmission distance, durable cable flex life and high-bandwidth applications. 3M offers two types of cables for a range of requirements to meet the CoaXpress 2.0 standard.
