Vertical Micro USB plug connector for PCB mount

Global Connector Technology has expanded its industry leading range of vertical micro USB connectors with the introduction of a new vertical micro USB plug - PCB mounted. Versus Hirose ZX80-B-5S & ZX80-B-5SA height above PCB is 7.13mm, more than 5.00mm profile saving. Footprint is only 7.35mm x 2.80mm, an 80% footprint saving vs. Hirose!

Micro USB plugs are normally mounted on a cable assembly, USB3150 offers designers an alternative option as it’s a micro USB plug designed for vertical printed circuit board mounting. Perfect for cradle mounting applications, normally used to charge handheld devices from cell phones up to rugged PC’s.

The PCB plug is thru hole with five contacts. To achieve additional strength on PCB the new range features six metal shell stakes and two plastic locating pegs. Two shell stake and lead length options are offered at 0.75mm & 1.30mm allowing customers to choose the appropriate type to suit their PCB thickness.

USB3150 meets USB2.0 standards including ten thousand mating cycles and mating/unmating forces between 8-35N, all technical details are contained in the full product specification.

To speed up design, a downloadable drawing, 3D models and product specification are available on the USB3150 connector page.
