Original equipment manufacturers have been implementing USB ports in devices for years, due to the technology’s proven high speed performance, data and power handling capabilities, and the declining costs of reliable USB chipsets due to economies of scale. Additionally, USB offers OEMs the small form factors required for many of today’s industrial, medical and commercial communications devices.
Some challenges that OEMs face in their new USB designs include the presence of high EMI/RFI environments, intended use in confined space applications (such as enclosures and panels), and industrial environmental factors such as exposure to shock, vibration, water and fine particulates.
For these often difficult OEM design requirements, L-com manufactures USB connectors and adapters that include right angle orientations, panel mounting capabilities, waterproof options and other specialized features for use in industrial environments.
Additionally, our ISO 9001:2008 manufacturing facilities are capable of producing custom USB connectors and adapters to satisfy any OEM design requirement.
