The DataPro 1591 USB cable is an extension
cable that can be mounted into a bulkhead
panel-mount hole and run through walls and
conduits to distant devices. The cable
features the squarish USB-B type connectors
on each end.
The USB 'B' style connection is generally
found on devices like printers, scanners, and
external hard drives. This USB-B panelmount extension cable
will allow users to plug into a USB wall plate
and access such devices remotely.
Perhaps you have a podium connected to a projector that features
USB control, and want to allow presenters to connect to the projector
directly from their laptops. Or perhaps in a computer lab, workstations
need direct USB access to a common hard disk or printer. Or if you're
building a custom OEM rig that is itself a USB device, with a
panelmounting USB-B cable, your interface question is answered.
This cable is USB 2.0 high speed compatible.
No threading is required on the plate or mounting surface—the
connector has embedded 4-40 nuts. The required
4-40 screws are included with the cable, and
extra-long screws are available upon request.
DataPro's extensive and exclusive line of
panelmounting cables is often imitated but
never beat on quality or service. We carry similar cables as USB A to panel-mount A
and USB B to panel-mount A.
