Magnetic connectors lead to safer USB connectivity

A solution for easier and safer USB connectivity in tight spaces or where the potential for unintended disconnection risks damaging equipment has been released by RS Components. Rosenberger magnetic self-locating connectors are now in stock, in USB Type-A, Type-B, Micro-B and Mini-B form factors.

The full range, comprising connector plugs, sockets, and cable assemblies, allows users to go magnetic at either end of any connection.

The advantages include zero-force mating and extended cycle life, self-location with accurate alignment even in locations that are difficult to reach or hard to see, and wrench-free tear-away that protects equipment against damage in the event of unintended disconnection.

Magnetic USB connections are also waterproof and UV resistant.

The connectors feature built-in misconnect prevention, and have reliable, corrosion-resistant gold-plated contacts.

The contacts are also easy to clean, ensuring outstanding long-term performance even in challenging environments.

Rosenberger magnetic connectors are suitable for all USB2.0 applications, and include a USB-A male to female adapter, Micro-B adapters, and male/female USB-A to Micro-B cable assemblies in one-metre lengths and white or black colour options.

A 1.5-metre USB-A male to magnetic circular 5-pin male cable assembly, and compatible magnetic circular 5-pin connector accessories are also available.
