    Panel mount USB options

    Hi guys,

    I am building some enclosures with Teensy inside and would like to add a robust USB port on the enclosure. However, most of the panel mount usb options I found were e.g. USB A to B. What I'm looking for is either USB A with pins (or at least solder leads) or USB B with pins or solder leads.

    The best I could find was something like this, but it is dual:

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for the tips!

    Bob

    Well adafruit offers a female micro B to male micro B: https://www.adafruit.com/products/3258

    They also offer normal female A to male A, and mini female A to mini male A, and female mini B to male mini B.

    If you look for "keystone usb" you will see various USB female connectors that either have a male end on the other side, or you can solder in wires to connect to the appropriate connector.

    Thanks for the replies guys! I have been using that exact connector that is USB-B panel mount to micro usb. The issue with that is that the cable is pretty long, and I have very limited space. So instead of cutting the cable and soldering it to the teensy directly I was hoping to find some kind of keystone solution.

    The suggestions of Michael come pretty close, but at leat the keystone ones I found had mostly female on one end, and another female on the other. I only need some solder pins, take this MIDI connector for example

    Easy to mount, and simple soldering on the back. For something as mainstream as USB I'm pretty surprised this is not easily available.

    I know I had seen at least one keystone jack that solder pads, but I can't find it any more.

    I don't know if it'll be of any use to you, but you might find this interesting:
