CMS waterproof speakers are a range of IP rated speakers with enhanced waterproofing suitable for use in moist environments.

The speaker features come in different sizes and shapes to meet different design needs and offers resonant frequencies from 180 to 1200 Hz.

CUI Devices has introduced the CMS waterproof speaker series to its existing line of speakers. The speakers will enable designers to build more robust products which can be used in damp and harsh environments. The waterproof speakers come in both round and rectangular frame shapes making it easier for designers to fit a speaker without having to modify the design. The new CMS waterproof speaker models feature sound pressure levels from 85 to 108 dB and packages from 15 mm up to 57 mm with profiles as low as 2.5 mm.

Speakers are used in a wide range of products, from audio devices to play sounds for communication or to listen to music such as speakers and earphones to any other product which requires sharing information or drawing the attention of the user such as a doorbell. The speakers are usually placed on the outer body so that the sound is not obstructed. Therefore, speakers can become Achilles’ heel in products that are used in harsh and damp environments. A non-waterproof speaker may compromise the safety of the whole product, thus a waterproof speaker is necessary to achieve ruggedness for the product.

According to the company, the speakers employ high-quality Neodymium magnets, moreover, the IP-rated models carry resonant frequencies from 180 to 1200 Hz. The speakers run on nominal inputs from 0.8 to 3 W, and impedance ratings of 4 or 8 ohms and deliver sound pressure levels from 85 to 108 dB. These waterproof speakers come in rectangular or round frame shapes, solder pad or spring contact mounting styles, and PEEK, PEI, or PET cone types. The CMS models are available starting at $1.16 per unit.
