Waterproof Miniature USB Connector

Tuningen, 22.01.2008

A new Miniature USB connector joins Bulgin’s Buccaneer family of waterproof data connectors.

USB is a well established PC interface using the standard ‘A’ and ‘B’ type connectors, but as the trend for smaller equipment continues naturally smaller connectors are required. The Miniature USB is very familiar to digital camera users but is also applicable for use on any equipment where the full functionality of the USB interface is required.

In common with others in the Buccaneer range, Bulgin’s new 5 pole miniature USB connector is dust and waterproof to IP68, when mated, and provides USB V2.0 performance up to 480Mbs.

The pre-wired cables, PX0441 and PX0442, are available in 2, 3 and 4.5m lengths with a sealed Mini ‘B’ type USB connector paired with either standard or miniature ‘A’ type USB. These will cater for most applications.

The panel mounted Mini ‘B’ connector is available for front-of-panel, PX0443, or rear-of-panel mounting with either PC pins, PX0446 or pre-wired, PX0447, with a short length of cable terminated with a PCB header.

The diameter over the coupling ring of the cable connector is just 19mm and the screw coupling provides a secure, proven locking system.

Mini USB Buccaneer will find many applications within smaller peripherals or where panel space is at a premium and, as with all Bulgin products, is fully RoHS compliant.
