L-com Global Connectivity announced that it is now manufacturing panel-mount USB cables with ground wires. The new USB 2.0 panel-mount cables are intended for use inside communications boxes or enclosures.
The panel-mount USB cables are available in lengths of 0.3, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 2, and 3 meters. The cable color is light gray and each assembly includes two 4-40 x 3/8" Phillips pan head mounting screws. An included #6 spade lug easily attaches to a screw or similar hardware. Common applications include: PC peripheral interconnects, test and measurement, data acquisition, portable data storage and printer interface applications.
By adding a ground wire to the cable's design, the user has the option to electrically ground the USB female connector to their panel or enclosure. The cables' molded, panel-mountable construction is rugged and robust, employing 20 AWG power conductors and 28 AWG twisted pair data conductors, all under a double-shield for maximum EMI resistance.
"We engineered these USB cables with ground wires to offer our customers adjustability and alternative design for their USB application," comments Steve Smith, product manager at L-com. "These cables are a great fit in applications with limited space."
