L-com is now offering two new USB 3.0 vision cable options that feature thumbscrew hardware on both ends of the cable.

Since these USB cables have thumbscrews on both sides of the cable they provide customers with an enhanced level of security for their application.

L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that they are now offering two new USB 3.0 vision cable options. The advantage of these cables is that they feature thumbscrew hardware on both connectors, as opposed to only one. The use of 30 micro-inch gold-plated contacts also ensures reliable connections with repeated mating cycles.

“Since these USB cables have thumbscrews on both sides of the cable they provide customers with an enhanced level of security for their application,” said Steve Smith, Product Manager.

Due to their secure fit, L-com envisions the USB 3.0 cables will be of value in applications where engineers are concerned about USB’s friction fit mating. L-com’s cables will lock down to prevent becoming unmated in more demanding environments where vibration and jostling occurs.

The new family types added to the USB 3.0 vision cable line-up include Type A-B with thumbscrews and Type A-Micro B with thumbscrews. Both cable families are offered in a range of cable lengths from 0.3-5.0 meters.

The USB 3.0 Vision cables were originally designed by the AIA (Automated Imaging Association) to support the machine vision camera market. L-com is a member of the AIA trade group and ensures all their products are built precisely to the AIA’s specifications. USB 3.0 cables are up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, a difference of 4.8 Gbps versus 480 Mbps. This increased bandwidth substantially reduces the time taken to transfer large amounts of data or video.
