|NORTH ANDOVER, MA -
L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has added panel-mount USB connectors with PCB solder tails. The new connectors, which come in either USB 2.0 Type A Female or USB 2.0 Type B Female, are being sold in packages of 10.
PCB connectors normally just rest on the board and can't be locked down. L-com's unique design allows an easy and permanent method to provide stability by adding two flanges to the USB connectors. The new connectors mount with standard 4-40 screws and use 30 microinch gold plated contacts to insure many mating cycles.
"It is important to provide USB solutions to a wide variety of applications since USB is so popular today," said Steve Smith, Product Manager. "We have already had success with PCB connectors for our field termination USB connectors, so it was a natural extension for us to offer PCB USB connectors as well."
The new connectors are stocked in the USA for same-day shipment, and 2-D engineering drawings and 3-D CAD models are available for free download from L-com's website.
