TE Connectivity – Industrial USB connectors offer rugged operation


Industrial USB connectors from TE Connectivity (TE) are ideal for all industrial USB applications in which a high locking force or a sealed design for use in harsh environments is required.
TE’s broad range of industrial USB connectors includes the IP20 series, which features an integrated locking mechanism with audible and tactile feedback. This provides an excellent interconnect solution for internal USB cable routing, eliminating the risk of the plug coming loose during transit and use.

TE has also added a range of industrial ruggedised connectors to its USB connector family. The Circular Sealed USB connector supports the Hi-Speed USB standard for outdoor factory-floor and harsh applications in which conventional USB connectors do not offer the required level of ruggedness.

The Circular Sealed USB connector has an IP67 rating and features an operating-temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.
