Waterproof connector reduces battery charging design

YOKOWO CONNECTORS TB series IPX7 rated waterproof blade and receptacle connector eliminates the need for a sealing structure or molding on the end product. This enables a faster design cycle with easier implementation and lower manufacturing costs. Designed for rugged battery charging applications such as tablet PCs, data collection terminals or drones, devices provide IPX7 ingress protection. With the IPX7 waterproof rating (submerged in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes), the connectors protect devices and batteries from water ingress damage to the internal electronic components. Utilizing potting and rubber sheets for sealing, the contacts are isolated to prevent a short circuit between adjacent contacts. The receptacle connector’s dual-beam floating contact design provides 6-axis misalignment compensation able to absorb misalignments of +/-0.3mm. The two-way insertion brings a high degree of design flexibility for engineers. Additionally, the floating contact design absorbs shock and vibrations enabling a steady and secure power connection.
