WR-COM Series USB 3.1 Connectors

Wurth Electronics' WR-COM series high-grade USB connectors encompass the USB 3.1 standard with a data rate of 10 Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) and 100 W power supply output that make USB 3.1 suitable for use in demanding industrial applications. The Type-C connectors and jacks offer exceptionally long service life.

Wurth Electronics offers an extraordinary range of dependable and space-saving solutions for fast and flexible installation. Due to the high-quality workmanship, the user-friendly USB 3.1 standard Type-C bidirectional connectors and jacks are set to become increasingly prevalent in the industry and in the consumer sector. The material quality goes hand-in-hand with superior shielding and greater coating of the contact surfaces.

The horizontal Type-C connector complies with the high-quality class of 10,000 mating cycles. It can be contacted into the ports in either mating direction and boasts dielectric strength up to 100 V and maximum contact resistance of 30 mΩ.

Wurth Electronics' WR-COM series is equipped for the anticipated broader use of USB in industrial applications. The USB 3.1 alternate-mode allows USB 3.1 hardware to be used to transmit data from other interface standards including HDMI, Ethernet, Thunderbolt, or DisplayPort with audio and video signals.
