MK Electric smooths transition with new USB integrated socket

Helping increase charging efficiencies, the company’s USB integrated socket outlet also includes its Dynamic Device Recognition (DDR) technology. So, whatever device is being charged, it recognises the USB port as it would its own charger and draws current in the way that best suits its design to ensure optimal charging in the least amount of time.

With health front of mind in the current climate, Logic Plus is made using urea formaldehyde; a high-grade thermoset material that has anti-bacterial properties inherent in the actual compound of the product. In addition, the range is scratch-free thanks to high quality mould tools, meaning there are no dirt traps for the bacteria to spread – another way to help optimise safety.

Remaining simple to install, the USB integrated socket from MK mounts into a standard 25mm back box, making it perfect for retrofit as well as new build projects in multiple applications including residential, commercial, education, hospitality and retail markets. It also features backed out and captive terminal screws and in-line, upward facing terminals with a funnel entrance for no-fuss installation.

Emma Segelov, MK Electric’s EMEA marketing operations manager, comments:

“When it comes to charging devices such as phones, tablets and wireless headphones, the 4-pin USB-A connection has been the standard for quite some time. With the added convenience of being smaller and reversible and the capability to deliver 100W of power and handle much higher rates of data transfer, even including video, in the future, the use of USB Type-C is on the rise and expected to quickly become the norm.

“The change won’t happen overnight. It will take some time for the market to fully make the transition from the still commonly used Type-A to Type-C connection. That’s why we have introduced this new USB integrated socket to the market to complement our existing, wide-ranging dual USB-A integrated sockets and euro module,

“Building on the popularity and trusted reputation of our Logic PlusTM range, we are helping organisations to move from one USB type to the other without compromising on the design, safety and quality benefits users have come to expect from our products.”

Manufactured at the company’s site in Southend on Sea, Essex, MK Electric’s Logic PlusTM USB integrated sockets have a five-year guarantee for added peace of mind.
