USB3F TV description

The Amphenol Socapex USB3F TV is a reinforced USB 3.0 connector designed to operate in harsh environments. Based on the MIL-DTL-38999 series III standard, this connector features a threaded locking mechanism and is sealed against fluids and dust (IP68). It is ideal for use in military avionics, grounded vehicles, battlefield communication, and industrial applications. 
With its improved EMI protection and tri-start thread coupling mechanism, the USB3F TV offers excellent shock, vibration, and traction resistance. It has two mechanical coding and polarization possibilities and offers a retention force of 100 N in the axis. The connector is also designed to require no tools and no cabling operation in the field. 
In addition to its rugged design, the USB3F TV offers excellent environmental protection. It has a salt spray resistance of up to 500 hours and is fire retardant/low smoke (UL94 V0 and NF F 16 101 & 16 102). It can withstand vibrations of up to 10-500 Hz, 10 g, 3 axes without discontinuity, and has a temperature range of -40degC to +85degC. Overall, the Amphenol Socapex USB3F TV offers a reliable and rugged solution for USB 3.0 connectivity in harsh environments. With its ability to protect standard USB 3.0 cordsets from shocks, dust, and fluids, it is an ideal choice for military, industrial, and other challenging applications.
