Electronics Bulgin connectors

Bulgin has announced three additions to its Data Buccaneer range of IP-rated circular connectors. The company’s latest products—Standard Buccaneer Cat 8, Standard Buccaneer USB 3.0 and Standard Buccaneer HDMI—are designed to ensure reliable data transmission for a range of applications, from industrial automation and construction to outdoor surveillance and renewable energy installations.

These latest connectors have a rating of up to IP69K when mated and are available in multiple cable lengths and mounting options, while offering significant enhancements from previous models. For example, the Cat 8 has data transfer rates of up to 25 GB per second—2.5 times faster than the Cat 6a equivalent—while the USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up to 5 GB per second, which is 10 times faster than the USB 2.0. Furthermore, the USB 3.0 has a two-way transmission capability that ensures simultaneous data flow in both directions, resulting in a theoretical 10-fold increase in bandwidth. Finally, the HDMI features HDMI 2.1 performance and an operating temperature range of –25°C to +80°C, making it ideal for outdoor applications such as broadcasting sporting events.
