Waterproof USB Type-C cables and connector from Amphenol LTW are now being shipped by Mouser Electronics. These cables and space-saving receptacles provide data and power connectivity and transmission. The cables feature a waterproof USB Type-C connector on one end and a non-waterproof USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 Type-A connector on the other.

The Type-C connector offers IP68-rated protection when mated, shielding the connection from dirt, dust, and long-term immersion in liquids.

The cables support the USB 3.1 standard with a top speed of 10 Gbps and 1A power supply (3A for the jack connector).

The standard allows for bi-directional power, which makes these cables and jack a one-piece solution for the data and power transmission without the need for a separate power adapter.

The connectors are suitable for a variety of applications in industrial and harsh environments, including data centre, portable devices, automotive diagnostic and infotainment systems, marine electronics, and outdoor LED displays.
