With the SeaLATCH USB panel mount adapter, you can use open USB headers on the motherboard to easily add a locking USB Type A connector to your enclosure, faceplate, or bulkhead. This gives you the freedom to add a locking USB port wherever it is needed. The molded panel-mount adapter interfaces to a variety of small board computers and motherboards via an internal USB header connection. Order the correct cable for your motherboard or small board computer under the Accessories tab.
The SL-PM integrates Sealevel’s SeaLATCH locking USB port, which is fully compatible with standard USB cables. When used with a USB cable with a SeaLATCH USB type A connector, the metal thumbscrew provides a secure metal-to-metal connection and prevents accidental cable disconnection. Order optional USB cables with SeaLATCH locking USB connectors under the Accessories tab.
The SL-PM is compatible with 13-21 gauge sheet metal and 11-19 gauge aluminum panels. The molded adapter integrates threaded inserts so no threading is required on your enclosure. Stainless steel (#4-40) mounting screws are included for a secure and professional installation. For convenience, the USB panel mount adapter is available on a PCI bracket (Item# SL-PCI) and a low profile PCI bracket (Item# SL-LPCI).
A 2mm 4-pin Molex header is integrated into the adapter and provides the internal USB interface to your host system. Simply choose the correct internal USB cable for your application. For EBX and larger motherboards with a 0.1 onboard USB header, order the CA260 internal USB cable. For smaller motherboards with a 2mm onboard USB header, order the CA383 internal USB cable.
