RS PRO 15cm USB 3.1 Male USB C to Female USB A Adapter

This USB 3.1 adapter from RS PRO features a male USB C connector at one end and a female USB A connector at the other, allowing you to effortlessly convert a type C socket into a type A socket. The type C connector is symmetrical and reversible, ensuring it can be inserted either way up and is much smaller than previous USB connectors. USB3.1 (also called Gen.2) brings many improvements to the previous standard USB3.0 (Gen.1) and is backwards compatible, allowing it to be used with USB3.0 PCs and devices with transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps. The cable flex has copper wire conductors and drain wire, with an aluminium braid and foil shielding. The connectors feature a nickel construction with strain relief to prevent the cable splitting and ensure a high quality connection.

FAQs

What are the benefits of USB 3.1?

USB 3.1 supports 20 volt, 3 amp power delivery and is backwards compatible, allowing you to use them on devices with previous USB versions such as USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. This cable also has a 5.1KΩ resistor to prevent too much power getting to a USB 3.0 device.

What is the difference between type C and A?

Type C connectors are a much smaller version of a standard USB connector and are used with USB C ports commonly found on devices such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets. USB A is the most common USB type and the connectors and ports are found on a wide range of devices including hard drives, computers, power supplies and more.

Will the data transfer rate decrease if used with a lower USB version?

Yes, if using a USB 3.1 adapter with cables of lower USB versions, the data transfer rate will be limited to the lower version.
