Mini USB AB connector
February 18, 2008 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
The latest addition to Bulgin’s Data Buccaneer range of dust and waterproof connectors is a new Mini USB ‘AB’ style interface in three panel mounted configurations. These three new ‘AB’ versions offer a choice of panel mounting. The first, PX0456, is front of panel mounting with a flying lead to the rear, terminated with a six-way 0.1″ crimp connector. The other two are rear of panel mounted; the PX0457 has a flying lead terminated with six-way PCB header and the PX0458 has straight PC pins for direct soldering to a PCB. Both of these allow the connector to be soldered to a PCB sub-assembly and tested as part of the assembly before final build. Being compatible with both mini ‘A’ and mini ‘B’ style interfaces this new five-pole product allows the true functionality of this ‘plug and play’ interface. The mini USB connector is dust and waterproof to IP68, when mated, and provides USB V2.0 performance up to 480Mbs.
