L-com, Inc. has launched a line of D-Subminiature female to female gender changers that have the normal mating hardware removed so it does not get in the way of panel mounting. The new items come in DB9, DB15, and DB25 sizes, as well as an HD15, commonly used in SVGA video applications. According to the company, ordinary D-Sub gender changers come with mating hardware that is too short for panel mounting, requiring the installer to remove the old hardware before adding the new. For larger installations, this extra step can add up to a lot of time. By offering these adapters without the hardware, L-com saves installers time and money.
