The industrial USB connectors from TE Connectivity are ideal for all industrial USB applications where a high locking force or a sealed design for the use in industrial applications is required.
With the introduction of a new IP20 series of industrial USB connectors that feature an integrated locking mechanism with audible and tactile feedback. The connectors create an excellent interconnect solution for internal USB cable routing. The newly designed locking feature helps prevent accidental pull out of the plug, which enables customers to secure a cable internally without having to worry about the plug coming loose during transit and use.
The industrial USB connectors are based on the USB (type A) connector system and meet USB2.0 transmission specifications. The devices can be used in multiple rows (they are equal in height), have four solder connections and are compatible with standard USB sockets (type A). To ensure proper locking, the mating sockets from TE are available in a single and double row design. The sockets must protrude from the housing in order to provide secure interlocking. The devices are also PCB-mount compatible. To enable design flexibility, the USB connectors are available in several types of socket and connector mountings (reflow soldering, surface mount, surface mount with board locks).
A sealed and highly reliable version (IP65/IP67) of the industrial circular USB connectors is also available. This rugged USB connector is designed for use in harsh environments and features a quick-connect bayonet coupling mechanism.
