Bulgin has expanded its Buccaneer range of robust connectors with USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2×2 options.

The 4000 Series connectors have a USB-C 2×12 contact arrangement,  supporting 20Gbps data rates with a 1m cables and 10Gbps with a 2m cable. The connectors are backwards compatible with legacy USB 2.0 implementations with lower speed data transfer and have have a 100W power rating, in line with the latest USB power delivery standard.

The Bulgin 4000 Series USB Type-C connectors offer over 1000 mating cycle endurance with a field-proven bayonet locking system. The shell has a stainless steel construction with nickel plating and the contacts are made from copper alloy with a gold finish with a maximum contact resistance of 40mΩ.

The operational temperature range spans from -40°C to +80°C – allowing them to cope with harsh application environments. IP66, IP68 and IP69K protection means that they are resilient to liquid and dust ingress, with compliance to EN60068-2-52 salt mist exposure making them suitable for marine deployment. The over-moulded design allows these connectors to be employed in situations where space is limited and the braided cables are protected by a strong PVC jacket.

Headquartered in Cambridge, UK, Bulgin has manufacturing in the UK and Tunisia.
