L-com Inc., a manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced bulk USB 2.0 cable with a Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) jacket. The new product is identical to L-com’s standard PVC USB Bulk Cable, except that the jacket is black and, when burned, the LSZH jacket will not produce toxic smoke.
The USB Bulk Cable can be used with L-com’s Type A and Type B USB connectors and hoods to manufacture custom USB cables if desired. L-com can also manufacture custom USB cables using this bulk cable with modest minimum order quantities.
“All LSZH products significantly reduce the amount of toxic gases emitted during combustion when compared to PVC,” says Steve Smith, product manager. “This is the same cable that is used in our popular CSUZAB and CSUZAA cable assemblies.”
