USB Cables with 45° Angle Connectors Added to L-com Lineup

Following the release of their popular 90 degree right angle USB 2.0 cable assemblies, L-com has created new 45 degree versions for instances where the tight 90 degree cables would not clear objects near the port, such as LEDs, buttons, or chassis ridges.

L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has released six new families of USB 2.0 cable assemblies with 45° angle molded backshells. These new cables follow L-com's popular 90° USB cable assemblies.

USB 2.0 cables are commonly used in everything from home theaters and PCs to industrial automation and military equipment. Normal, straight USB backshells do not bend-and in tight space applications, such as a computer fitted into a small compartment or a crowded rack enclosure-improperly attempting to force in a straight USB connector can damage both the cable and the port that it is plugged into. L-com's right angle USB cables address this situation by allowing a tight, 90° bend at the connection point. The new 45° USB cables provide more options for users who require an angle but a tight, 90° angle may not clear objects near the port.

"When we released our 90° USB cables, they were immediately popular with engineers, IT professionals, and everyone from the manufacturers to the day-to-day users of USB equipment," said Steve Smith, Product Manager. "But we knew we could offer even more choices, so we invested in designs for other, hard-to-find angles on USB cables."

L-com has posted a free, downloadable tip to help determine the correct 45° angle for each application, in addition to engineering drawings and 3D CAD models for each part. With stock expected to be available by late June, L-com will be able to ship against orders placed the same day.
