Rugged USB-C connectors

22 March 2017 Interconnection

RS Components announced availability of the new Amphenol MUSBR series of ruggedised USB-C connectors and dust caps.

Designed for use by electronic design engineers working with the latest USB Type-C technology, applications cover diverse sectors including smartphones, tablets, PCs and laptops; power packs and chargers, and applications in areas such as industrial machinery.

Key features of the PCB-mounted USB-C 3.1 connector receptacles include rugged construction and an IP67 rating for harsh environments. The connectors are capable of supporting high-speed data transmission rates and handling up to 100 W of power. The connector siting provides its robustness, which is inside a high-temperature thermoplastic housing, encased in a nickel-plated, die-cast zinc outer shell with stainless-steel rear shields for extra protection. The connectors are available with right angle or vertical solder tails to provide extra design flexibility.

The range also features a reversible plug interface that ensures the plugs are able to mate first time in any orientation. This makes them much easier to use, as well as eliminating misalignment and mating issues. The compact design also makes them small enough for use with mobile phones and robust enough for laptops and tablets.

Also available separately from RS are high-temperature silicone rubber dust caps, for use with the MUSBR series. They provide extra protection and prevent water and dust ingress when the connectors are not in use. They have a brass nickel-plated bushing with a 2,57 mm diameter hole for mounting, and are available in black and grey colours.
