CUI’s Interconnect Group has added several waterproof USB connectors, with Ingress Protection (IP) ratings of IP67, to its USB product family. Protecting from moisture and environmental contaminants, the connectors are offered in USB Micro B and Type C receptacle formats, while conforming to either the USB 2.0 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard, depending on the model.

The company’s USB receptacles provide surface-mount and mid-mount SMT mounting styles in vertical or horizontal orientations, with several models produced with plastic mounting tabs for greater stability on the PCB. Rated up to 10,000 mating cycles and supporting operating temperature ranges from -40C up to 85C, these waterproof USB connectors are a highly reliable solution for consumer and portable electronic devices. All models are also reflow solder compatible adding to their flexibility during the assembly process.

Meeting the USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard, the UJ31-CH-3-MSMT-TR-67 USB Type C connector series further supports data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps and power delivery up to 100W at 20V. This makes it a highly rugged, versatile connector for a variety of I/O applications in consumer and portable electronics, including smartphones, wearables, and industrial automation equipment.
