Heilind Electronics has recently added Molex USB Type-C shielded I/O connectors and cable assemblies to its stock.
The Type-C connectors offer a “more compact design” with “greater PCB savings, while allowing high-frequency mating in data, consumer, automotive, and industrial I/O applications,” according to Heilind.
Heilind also said it’s “Type-C receptacles have a tongued design to help prevent damage, while the high-temperature nylon insert-mold receptacle housing prevents potential shorting. Plugs feature protective mylar between the housing and shell, as well as a high normal force terminal design to stabilize electrical performance.”
“Molex USB Type-C connectors support up to 5.0A of power, reducing battery-charging time by 64% when compared to micro-USB 2.0 models,” and are “available with cable options for both USB 2.0 and 3.1 specifications” according to Heilind.
