Waterproof USB Micro B and Type C receptacles

CUI’s Interconnect Group has announced the addition of several waterproof USB connectors, with Ingress Protection (IP) ratings of IP67, to its USB product family.

Offering protection from moisture and environmental contaminants, the connectors are available in USB Micro B and Type C receptacle formats, while conforming to either the USB 2.0 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard, depending on the model.

CUI’s USB connectors feature surface mount and mid mount SMT mounting styles in vertical or horizontal orientations, with several models designed with plastic mounting tabs for greater stability on the PCB. Rated up to 10,000 mating cycles and carrying operating temperature ranges from -40 up to 85°C, these USB connectors are a reliable solution for consumer and portable electronic devices.

All models are also reflow solder compatible adding to their flexibility during the assembly process.

Meeting the USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard, the UJ31-CH-3-MSMT-TR-67 USB Type C connector series supports data transfer speeds up to 10 Gbps and power delivery up to 100 W at 20 V, making it a highly rugged, versatile connector for a variety of I/O applications in consumer and portable electronics, including smartphones, wearables, and industrial automation equipment.
