Power and connectivity products manufacturer Tripp Lite's new Ultra-Strong USB Cables product line is made with a UHMWPE and aramid fiber construction designed for applications requiring extra durability, addressing the need for USB cables that withstand frequent and rigorous use including on-the-go charging of mobile devices.
Lightweight, yet incredibly durable, UHMWPE is a type of thermoplastic polyethylene with high-impact and abrasion resistance. Aramid is a strong synthetic fiber used in bulletproof clothing, marine ropes and fire-resistant materials, as well as in military and aerospace applications. The cables' UHMWPE and aramid construction reinforce the conductors inside the cable.
Tripp Lite's Ultra-Strong USB Cables also have a double-braided nylon jacket that helps maintain top performance and long life. Integral strain relief gives the cable extra flexibility, reduces stress and helps the cable move freely without cracking or breaking away from the connector. Gold-plated contacts provide maximum conductivity and minimal data loss.
Providing a fast, clear signal for applications such as video streaming, the cables come in three styles: USB-A to USB-C, USB-A to USB Micro-B and USB-A to Lightning connector. All styles are available in lengths of 3, 6 and 10 feet. Cables with Lightning connectors are also available in a length of 1 foot.
“Charging cables used with mobile USB devices often are pulled, strained and generally heavily used. This can affect the cable’s performance or damage the cable to the point where it stops functioning,” comments David Posner, Tripp Lite’s Director of Product Marketing, Connectivity. “To counter such stresses, these robust cables are constructed using UHMWPE and aramid fibers, which exhibit incredible tensile strength to reinforce the conductors inside the cable.”
