L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand and a preferred manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that it has launched a new series of ruggedized USB 3.0 cables that feature die-cast metal back shells and optional thumbscrews that are commonly used in machine vision applications.
L-com’s new CAU3DCVIS-series cables were developed to address demanding connectivity applications including industrial and factory automation, process engineering, machine vision, data acquisition and PLC communications.
These unique and hard to find cables feature specialized die-cast back shells with optional thumbscrews for securing the connectors to ensure connectivity is not disrupted in the event of pull or impact. The cables are available off-the-shelf with the following connector combinations: Type-A male to Micro-B male, Type-A male to Type-C male and Type-A male to Type-B male. Other features include black PVC cable jackets, double shielding and 22AWG power conductors which provide maximum USB power transfer.
“Our new ruggedized USB 3.0 cables are perfect for use in industrial settings where high vibration, impacts and other harsh conditions prevail. These unique cables can be mated to any standard USB 3.0 Type-A jack and allow for the use of thumbscrews for applications requiring extra secure connections,” said Dustin Guttadauro, Product Line Manager.
L-com’s new ruggedized USB 3.0 cable assemblies with die-cast back shells are in-stock and available for immediate shipment.
