Amphenol announced the launch of the new magnetic connector Stingray, optimised for body-worn applications.
Stingray is a low-profile, compact and sealed connector that sits flat against the body to prevent snagging and damage. It is self-aligning due to its strong magnetic connection and allows customisation and flexibility of cable routing as the cable can be rotated through 360 degrees when the connector is mated.
Stingray is an excellent solution for audio, power or data signals and is ideal for first responders, security and military personnel. The connector features a magnetic, non-keyed mating system which allows it to be easily mated without the need for pre-alignment and eliminates the need to operate any coupling mechanisms.
Stingray has been optimised for USB 2.0 and Ethernet protocols.
