L-com to Offer Clear Jacketed USB 2.0 Premium Cables

The clear-jacketed USB 2.0 cables feature 20 AWG power leads to allow maximum power transfer.

NORTH ANDOVER, MA - 05/29/14 - L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that they will now be selling USB 2.0 clear jacketed premium cables, in Type A-B and Type A-A connector configurations. These high quality cables have a similar design to L-com's popular CSMUAB and CSMUAA cables, but have a clear cable jacket and overmold that exposes the cable's braid and inner metal back-shell shielding can.


"The look of clear-jacketed USB cables really catches a customer's eye," said Steve Smith, Product Manager, "But what's also great about these cables is that they highlight the high quality shielding inside the bulk cable and under the mold."

According to Smith, most bulk cables are made with much less braid coverage. In cheaper cables, one can often see the foil shield and sometimes the wires through the braid. With the premium L-com cables, only the braid is visible due to the high braid coverage, which allows for better protection against EMI in electrically noisy environments. Furthermore, the metal can under the mold serves as a better shielding method than the use of copper tape or through soldering a piece of the braid to the connector.

Additionally, the clear-jacketed USB 2.0 cables feature 20 AWG power leads to allow maximum power transfer. Both versions of this cable family are available in 0.3, 0.5, 1, 2, 3 and 5 meter lengths.
