L-com Debuts Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen USB 2.0 Cables with Ferrites
(Thursday, September 27, 2018)

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (September 27, 2018) - L-com Global Connectivity, a preferred manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that it has released a new series of low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) USB cables with ferrites that are ideal for protecting people and equipment from toxic and corrosive gases in poorly vented areas.

Many industrial, oil and gas, rail, military and government installations include areas that have little ventilation and also expose electronics to severe temperatures and/or flammable chemicals. Though many USB-powered test, monitoring, control, location and portable electronics used in these environments are ruggedized to operate safely under these conditions, the USB peripherals and USB cables that come with these electronics are often not up to the task.

Beyond ruggedness, USB cable material construction plays a major role in reducing toxic emissions if USB electronics are exposed to high heat and flammable liquids or gases. Moreover, these environments are often plagued by electromagnetic interference (EMI) from large electric motors, high-powered lighting and a diverse range of radio electronics. This often requires additional shielding and protection for sensitive USB peripherals from conducted EMI from the USB cabling. This is where L-com’s new LSZH USB 2.0 cables with ferrites are able to provide reliable EMI protection during normal operation, as well as reduce toxic and corrosive gas emissions in the case of combustion.

Featuring both LSZH materials, as well as ferrites for optimum EMI protection, L-com’s new USB cables are available with USB Type-A male to Type-B male connectors, Type-A male to Type-A female connectors and Type-A male to Type-A male connectors. This new line of ferrite-equipped LSZH USB cables further adds to L-com’s current line of LSZH USB cables without ferrites, and delivers enhanced EMI mitigation with transfer speeds of up to 480 Mbps. These new USB cables are constructed with power-transfer-efficient 25 AWG wire and are available in common cable lengths of 0.3, 0.5, 1, 2, 3 and 5 meters.

“Our new USB 2.0 cables with low-smoke-zero-halogen jackets and ferrites were designed for industrial environments where both EMI/RFI and fire hazards exist. These new assemblies are perfect for use in data storage, streaming video and data acquisition applications,” said Brian Gates, Product Manager.

L-com’s new low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) USB cables with ferrites are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
