Re: Shielded usb a/b cable
As I have used both short and ferrite type USB A to B and hadn't seen both in the same cable, I thought I'd search after seeing the digest today.
I didn't do an exhaustive search.
But I found (all USB 2.0):
Tripp-lite makes a 3 ft and 6 ft USB A to B with ferrite.
P/N U023-003 3 ft. with ferrite $5.99 on Amazon Prime
P/N U023-006 6 ft. with ferrite $6.00 on Amazon Prime
Tripp-Lite makes a 1 ft USB A to B no ferrite.
P/N UR022-001 1 ft no ferrite $ didn't check
L-com Makes a 0.5 M USB A to B with ferrite.
P/N U2A00002-05M 0.5 meter with ferrite $5.21 qty 1-9
It is also sold by Show Me Cables for the same price.
L-com owns them.
Belkin Pro Series has a 6 inch USB A to B 2.0 no ferrite.
From hellabargain.com $16.86
Perhaps Belkin is available elsewhere for less. I didn't look.
I've used a 6 inch USB for daily use with a portable CF card reader/dongle at work. Eventually, it went bad/ intermittent (as expected). A longer cable in flex service like that lasts much longer. In your station it may do fine.
L-Com also had an USB 2.0 A to MicroB with ferrites - 0.5 meter for $6.29 Qty 1-9. FWIW
End of search. I'm sure there's more out there.
The 3 who posted earlier should get my attachment.
