Newark, a division of Avnet, is expanding its line of magnetic connectors from Multicomp Pro.
The magnetic cable assembly and connector kits combine spring-loaded pins with magnetic interfaces, which offer reliable, self-mating, easily detachable connections.
The magnetic connectors were developed and designed to be used in a wide range of industries including medical/healthcare, power management, maker and education, industrial, computer peripherals and wearables.
The connectors could be used in applications where a two-contact connector needs to be rotated a full 360° without losing electricity.
Newark said the electronic components can be used in a variety of products and environments and the MP002495 magnetic connector has an IP67 rating and is designed for low voltage applications such as battery charging.
