Micro USB connector for high moisture applications

A waterproof micro USB 2.0 connector has been added to CUI’s USB product family. The UJ2W MIBH 4 SMT is a micro B type jack connector with an ingress protection rating of IPX7, offering protection from liquid and moisture in challenging environments.

With its copper alloy contact terminals with 30µin gold over nickel plating and stainless steel shielding, the connector is said to be designed for high durability at 10,000 mating cycles.

The series features a surface mount package and horizontal orientation with a voltage rating of 30V AC, current rating of 1.8A and operating temperatures ranging from 25 to 85°C. Plastic mounting ears are also included, which the company claims provides added stability on the board.

Complying with the USB 2.0 standard, the connector allows for high speed data and power transmission, making it suitable for a variety of I/O applications in consumer and portable electronic devices that may be used in outdoor environments – including mobile computing equipment, digital audio devices, camcorders and GPS units.
