By using MIM (Metal Injection Molding) for the outer shell, GCT can produce a single piece stainless steel shell. The advantage of this process is the removal of any seams, additional strength and the precision of the molding.
The combination of these powerful factors delivery an exceptional reliable product that wont let you down in the most demanding of applications.
An added benefit is 4 solderable mounting posts that provide extra secure attachment to the PCB. This feature reduces assembly time as no screws or additional fixings are required.
“The MIM process used for the USB35 series sets a new standard for IP rating and moves our connectors into more demanding environments and applications,” commented Paul Hulatt, GCT Product Manager. “We’re seeing increasing demand for water and dustproof connectors and the USB35 series is only the beginning for GCT. We will be pushing the boundaries and performance in the USB segment by offering more innovative IP rated solutions, including unique to market products too.”
