Industrial USB connectors – The communication standard

Industrial connectivity

TE's industrial USB connectors are ideal for all industrial USB applications where a high locking force or a sealed design for the use in industrial applications is required.

More reliable than RJ45.  TE offers a broad range of industrial USB connectors. The IP20 series features an integrated locking mechanism with audible and tactile feedback, creating an excellent interconnect solution for internal USB cable routing without having to worry about the plug coming loose during transit and use. A sealed and highly reliable version (IP65/IP67) for rugged and harsh environments is also available.
