NORTH ANDOVER, MA – 01/20/2010 – L-com Global Connectivity, a leading manufacturer of both wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today the release of their CAUALAL and CAUALB latching USB Cables. These cables feature a latching mechanism on the Type A male connector that insures a secure, strong connection even in any application.
The USB standard has been one of the most successful standards in connectivity history, despite some of its shortcomings. One of those shortcomings is that the connector traditionally is “friction fit”, and has a tendency to pull out of the mating jack when subject to light pressure or vibration.
L-com’s new latching USB products are expected to be very useful in high vibration applications, like in military and off-road vehicles, boats, and airplanes or anywhere that a “lost” connection is a problem.
This is not L-com’s first latching USB cable. In 2005, L-com introduced a coiling USB cable with latching Type A male connectors. These new cables come in various lengths and do not have the coiling feature.
