Waterproof USB Type-C™ Receptacle Has Been Developed to Add to Our DX07 Series Connectors
JAE has launched a waterproof USB Type-C receptacle to add to the DX07 Series line-up. The "DX07 Series" family consists of Type-C receptacle connectors, plug connectors, and cable harnesses.
As a next generation standard interface, USB Type-C connectors are widely used in new PCs, smartphones, hand-held devices, audio visual devices, and portable gaming devices, etc. Recently, the demand of waterproof performance has increased for applications such as high-end smartphones. To cater to these trending requirements, JAE has developed the USB Type-C waterproof receptacle.
Generally, for waterproof connectors with IPX7 rating or higher, potting (resin seal) is used for waterproofing. However, there were concerns of small gaps forming during reflow processes which expose the connector to high temperatures.
The JAE product does not use the potting method in consideration of the reflow heat, and instead achieves waterproof performance by adopting a unique design and insert molding process. As a result, the product has a highly reliable waterproof structure to satisfy IPX8 (resistance to submersion at a depth of 1.5m for 30 minutes) even after the reflow process.
Two connector shell lengths have been developed, offering even greater design flexibility so the connector can be used for a wide range of devices.
As a manufacturer who has taken part in the development and standardization of the USB Type-C specification, JAE will continuously work to expand product variations of receptacles, plugs, and cable harnesses in the DX07 Series.
