Connect with Confidence - GCT Ultra High Mating Cycle USB Connectors

Generally speaking, standard mating cycles for USB connectors are suitable for most applications. But what if you required over the usual 1,500 cycles for full-sized USB connectors? Some considered as 'high mating' go up to 5,000 cycles, but there are instances when this still isn’t enough.

Where charging is used as the primary function for a USB connector, it’s not surprising to see repeated mating and un-mating going over and above these numbers, especially for use in high traffic applications such as public charging points. GCT has engineered a USB 3.0 Type A connector durable enough to withstand over 20,000 cycles, thoroughly tested and rated.  There are also several other variants being developed such as vertical mount and right angle versions and will be expanding the GCT high mating cycle range shortly.

The USB1086 has one of the highest mating cycles available in the market today for USB 3.0 Type A,  It achieves the industry leading specification by using a higher grade stainless steel shell to enhance durability and strengthen retention forces.
