MilesTek Launches New USB 3.0 Cable Assemblies with Thumbscrews


MilesTek, a leading manufacturer and supplier of products designed to address military and avionics applications, announced today that it has released a new series of USB 3.0 cable assemblies with thumbscrews to address high vibration and vision applications.

The new MUS3A-series cables feature a unique molded connector on one end of the assembly that includes two thumbscrews and a standard male USB 3.0 connector on the other end of the assembly. The thumbscrew connector is beneficial in many military and industrial applications where standard friction fit USB connectors can become dislodged from jostling, vibration, etc.

Additionally, these cables are manufactured per the mechanical requirements of the USB3 Vision standard and feature 30-micro-inch gold-plated contacts and throughput of 4.8 Gbps. Connector options include USB 3.0 Type A, B and Micro-B combinations.

“Our unique panel-mount USB 3.0 cables with thumbscrews were developed to address applications often found in military and industrial applications where excessive vibration or accidental cable pull can occur. This secure design will also appeal to our OEM customers who manufacture machine vision equipment,” said Mark Hearn, Product Manager.

MilesTek’s new USB 3.0 cables with thumbscrews are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
