The new mediaCON product family includes robust, lockable USB Type-C cables and panel sockets. All components are designed for data rates up to 10 GB/s (USB 3.1), 100 W power and 10,000 mating cycles.
“We observe that with increasing digitalization, the demand for high-quality and robust data connectors is steadily increasing. More and more manufacturers rely on USB Type-C technology. However, a lockable and reliable interface to connect professional audio components, storage media, cameras, monitors and computer hardware has been missing”, says Fabio Röllin, Product Manager at Neutrik AG. The new mediaCON series now offers the perfect solution for professional AV and broadcast applications, live rental, system integration and industrial applications.
The space-saving, flush-mount panel socket with push-pull locking mechanism can be mounted from the front or the rear. The moulded casing of the cable connector disappears as it is plugged in by about 75 percent into the built-in socket and locks in place. This ensures not only a reliable connection but also protects against dirt and mechanical stress. mediaCON cables with bend protection are available in lengths of 0.5 and 1 meter. All mediaCON cables and panel sockets are also compatible with standard USB-C products.
