USB smart modules assist connectivity within vehicles

Molex has merged automotive-grade durability with mass availability on its line of USB Smart Charge Modules. Manufactured specifically for customers’ automotive and commercial vehicles that require a smart-charge USB module, Molex products feature state-of-the-art design to give users maximum performance.

Along with their unique design, USB Smart Modules were created to fit into limited space, making them the ideal fit for a wide spectrum of vehicles, ranging from farm equipment and trains to cars, trucks and SUVs.

“USB Smart Charge Modules are a market leader by virtue because they are automotive-grade smart chargers that are available as a standard product. It is rare to find that combination,” said Shella Ali, global product manager, Molex. “These products provide a solution to our customers who need a reliable and sturdy off-the-shelf USB smart-charge module. Any automotive or commercial vehicle manufacturer in the market for an affordable, smart-charging USB module backed by years of manufacturing quality improvements and expertise will benefit from having this Molex solution.”

The USB Smart Charge Modules are available in both single port and dual port models. Outside of the number of ports, the two models are nearly identical. Each features over-voltage, over-current and short-circuit protection for safety. Both models also are equipped with a 2.4A output current, a battery operating voltage of 9 to 16V, and can operate from temperatures ranging from -40 to 85°C. Additionally, each have an automotive-grade USB and are compliant to Apple MFI.

Molex USB modules are perfect for customers looking for a safer and better performing charger within a less intrusive product. These modules have been given an automotive grade and feature a higher output current than their market competition, while taking up less front panel space in a vehicle.
