Expands USB receptacle product line to support new industry standardUSB-C

Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems, a leader in electrical device innovation, has introduced the industry’s first 5 AMP USB Type-C receptacle, bringing more power for a faster charge to the next-generation mobile devices.

The Hubbell USB Type-C Receptacle complies with the new Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard, which supports faster mobile device charging and development of thinner, lighter and future-proof technology. Apple and Samsung recently unveiled devices with the smaller Type-C ports and additional manufacturers are rolling out the new symmetrical charging for tablets, smart and mobile phones, laptops and a host of other electronic devices.

“A new industry standard has arrived and it’s enhancing the way we charge.” said Vic Flagello, Director Residential Marketing, Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “We’re proud to deliver the first USB Type-C receptacle that solves the challenge of today’s mobile devices that need more power and a faster charge.

The tamper-resistant receptacles are available with two 15 Amp or 20 Amp/125VAC power outlets and two horizontal Type-C charging ports. Rated for 10,000 insertions and removals, the ports are designed to provide years of reliable connection. Both USB ports and power outlets can be used simultaneously without sacrificing speed or safety. If two smart devices are plugged in, the individual ports will allocate power as determined by the devices.
