Designed to meet customer requests for a rugged USB connector with a small PCB footprint, the CX connector receptacles and plugs are suitable for a wide range of applications susceptible to high-vibration and drop impacts including control systems, drones, medical devices, smart meters, point-of-sale equipment, imaging equipment and many other small portable devices. The new CX Series versions include the CX60-24S slim 1.0m double ended cable assembly with superior short-circuit protection, the CX80B1-24P vertical mount version with reduced PCB mounting area, the CX90M-16P mid-mount USB 2.0 version with high current carry capacity for fast device charging and the CX90MWD2-24P mid-mount version with a waterproof capable option compliant to IPX8. The USB 3.1 Type-C connectors deliver high-data speeds up to 10Gbps, while reducing the occupied mounting area in comparison to comparable connectors on the market. A symmetrical mating design allows for reversible plug insertion, with built-in guide posts that ensure precise connector positioning and orientation on the PCB.
The CX Series receptacles feature a hybrid PCB mount design that utilizes both surface-mount and through-hole soldering to improve mounting accuracy and minimise the board mounting space needed. The hybrid design also facilitates automated optical inspection and eases reworking of the solder terminal joints with a visible lead design.
