USB made simpler and more secure with magnetic connectors

RS Components has the solution for easier and safer USB connectivity in tight spaces or where the potential for unintended disconnection risks damaging equipment. Rosenberger magnetic self-locating connectors are now in stock, in USB Type-A, Type-B, Micro-B and Mini-B form factors.

The full range, comprising connector plugs, sockets, and cable assemblies, allows users to go magnetic at either end of any connection. The advantages include zero-force mating and extended cycle life, self-location with accurate alignment even in locations that are difficult to reach or hard to see, and wrench-free tear-away that protects equipment against damage in the event of unintended disconnection. Magnetic USB connections are also waterproof and UV resistant.

The connectors feature built-in misconnect prevention, and have reliable, corrosion-resistant gold-plated contacts. The contacts are also easy to clean, ensuring outstanding long-term performance even in challenging environments.

Rosenberger magnetic connectors are suitable for all USB2.0 applications, and include a USB-A male to female adapter, Micro-B adapters, and male/female USB-A to Micro-B cable assemblies in one-metre lengths and white or black colour options. A 1.5-metre USB-A male to magnetic circular 5-pin male cable assembly, and compatible magnetic circular 5-pin connector accessories are also available.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
