New Albany, Ind. Samtec has introduced its family of Acclimate sealed circular I/O interfaces that meet IP68 specifications for dust and waterproof sealing in industrial or other rugged/harsh environment applications.
The initial Acclimate offering includes interfaces for Ethernet (SCRE/SCPE Series) and USB (SCRU/SCPU Series) applications. Devices under development include power, micro pitch signal, and RF connectors. Custom designs are also available.
Standard cable plugs are available in lengths up to 2 meters. They may be sealed on one or both ends. The USB system can be specified with either A Type or B Type plugs on either end. Panel interface receptacles are self-contained and are terminated to the board with standard USB Ethernet cable jumpers.
Samtec also offers panel-to-panel systems for high-speed systems with its Data Rate I/O product line. Data Rate I/O cable assemblies are typically constructed with shielded twisted pair or twinax cable.
Pricing for Acclimate receptacles is $4.93 in small production quantities.
