L-com Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, says it now offers three new interface options with its Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) USB 3.0 Cables. USB 3.0 Type A, Type B and Type Micro B are now available for customers. The new series, featuring LSZH cable jackets, can reduce the amount of toxic and corrosive gases emitted during combustion, and will self extinguish after catching on fire.
“The safety feature of LSZH with USB connectivity is a game changer for many of our customers, both military and civilian,” said Steve Smith, Product Manager. “We are proud to be able to offer such high quality USB connectivity products as solutions for their applications.”
Low smoke zero halogen is typically used in poorly ventilated areas. It is very popular with military contractors and anywhere where the protection of people and equipment from acidic smoke and fumes is critical. Other applications include data storage, video transfer, aerospace, and shipboard use.
USB 3.0 cables are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 cables with 4.8 Gbps of throughput versus 480 Mbps. The increased bandwidth substantially reduces the time required for transferring large amounts of data or video. Quantity pricing is available by contacting L-com sales.
