Part of the USBField product line from Amphenol, new USB 2.0 connections for harsh environments feature mechanical strength and need no tools. The locking system uses a screw thread and incorporates an anti-uncoupling system to provide high levels of resistance to vibration and impact Sheaths are reinforced with double shielding and are self-extinguishing and halogen-free (UL94-V0). Solutions are resistant to industrial and military environments with IP67 waterproofing and resistance to salt spray for 48 to 500 hours. They can be used in a temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C. Connections include versions dedicated to applications subjected to major levels of disturbance from electromagnetic fields. USB A connectors have been joined by USB B cables and connectors (to link up peripherals). www.usbfield.com , www.amphenol.com Amphenol
