Fremont, CA: MilesTek, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading manufacturer and supplier of products designed to address military and avionics applications, has launched a new line of ruggedized USB 3.0 cables that are ideal for military, government, mil-lite, and industrial connectivity applications.

MilesTek's new line of USB 3.0 cable assemblies includes nine ruggedized models with die-cast metal backshells. Designed to support harsh environments, these cables feature optional, removable machine vision thumbscrews for secure lockdown connections. Additional features include USB 3.0 compliance with up to 4.8 Gbps speeds,22 AWG power conductors for maximum power transfer, and Type-A, B, Micro-B, and C connector options in lengths of 1, 2, and 3 meters off-the-shelf.

"With our new line of ruggedized USB 3.0 cables with die-cast metal shells, we can fill a niche and offer customers a hardier alternative to standard USB 3.0 cables without the excess cost of full mil-spec. Also, since these cables are in-stock, customers can avoid long lead times typically associated with specialized cables like these," said Dustin Guttadauro, Product Line Manager.
