Unshielded USB 2.0 Couplers Offer Secure Panel-Mounting to Any Thickness
Press release date: February 27, 2012
NORTH ANDOVER, MA - L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has added four new USB 2.0 couplers to its extensive USB component offering. The new couplers, which are unshielded and use the "ECF" style flange-mount design, offer beige and black colored shells with type A to A and type B to A styles.
L-com first announced the shielded type A to A adapters in 2004. These adapters have since become very popular because of their unique ECF design which allows them to be mounted on virtually any panel thickness. However, until now the A to A and B to A styles were only offered with the chrome-colored shielded shells. The new black and beige options expand the USB adapter offering.
"Until recently, the chrome-colored adapters served all applications," said Steve Smith, Product Manager. "Recent customer feedback made it clear that there is a demand for more black and beige unshielded versions."
The new adapters are offered on the L-com web site along with the existing couplers, and will include free 2D engineering drawings and 3D CAD model downloads. They will be stocked in the North Andover, MA fulfillment center for same-day shipment.
