Scolmore’s Type C USB sockets available in all ranges

Last month, Scolmore expanded its wiring accessories range to include 13A 2-gang socket outlets with integrated Type A and Type C USB charging ports, to meet growing demand and developments in the market for charging solutions.  Originally available in the popular Click Mode range, the new socket outlets are now available in all wiring accessories ranges – Polar, Metal Clad, Part M, Deco, Deco+, Define and Definity.

By integrating both Type A and Type C on the same socket, the range will have broader functionality and cover charging options for the widest possible range of devices that now use different sized ports.  

Used independently, the Type C USB has a charging output of 5V DC, 3A, while the Type A USB has a charging output of 5V DC, 2.4A (independent charge). When both USB ports are in use, the 4.2A charge is shared, with Type C given priority to output its full 3A, with Type A reduced to an output of 1.2A. 

The charging ports have a new location - moved from above each independent socket outlet to a central position above one another, allowing the rocker switches to be moved to an ‘outboard position.’ 

Type C USB is the connector of the future. Already available on a number of devices, it is likely to eventually replace USB Types A, B and Micro USB on all new products and systems. Smaller and thinner than its predecessors, Type C USB is reversible and can be plugged in either way with no risk of damage.

As with all Scolmore Group products, the new USB sockets have been independently tested, and they are fully compliant with the most up to date set of USB test standards. Typical applications will include education and training settings, offices, domestic dwellings, hotels, hospitals and healthcare settings.
