“Our complete line of sealed USB interconnects and assemblies are suitable for any boat application requiring a secure, robust connection,” states Kurt Krutsch, product marketing manager, Molex. “Harsh-duty sealed USB connectors bring the convenience of one of the most popular I/O connector formats safely, securely and cost-effectively into marine environments.”
Rugged plug-and-receptacle Molex USB interconnect designs feature secure bayonet style latching, encapsulated PCB receptacles and overmolded cable assemblies, with IP67 and NEMA 6P ratings for optimal protection against dust, debris and water. Delivering high performance and ease of use, Molex industrial USB cord sets are available in varied lengths for any marine application requirement. The overmolded cord sets allow faster on-site installation than traditional field-wired connectors.
“Featuring fully-shielded cable and heavy-duty construction, Molex sealed connector assemblies provide exceptional performance in high vibration and harsh weather conditions, with superior protection against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference on land or water,” adds Krutsch.
Also highlighted at the show are the sealed Ethernet connectors featuring bayonet-style latching as well as Brad® M12 and Ultra-Lock®. The RJ-45 bayonet style ensures proper insertion depth when mating and a quick, easy connection.
