Manufactured by GT Contact, the new connectors are rated to IP68, provide fast data transfer Cat6 speeds and are available with a wide range of options. This makes them ideal for use in equipment designed for demanding industrial applications, from factory-floor automation and control, to chemical, offshore and marine equipment.
The new connectors are available with either thermoplastic (PA66) housings, which offer IP67 protection, or metal (nickel-plated copper alloy) housing, with IP68 protection. All the panel mount connectors are rear potted to maintain the integrity of the panel seal even when the connector is unmated; sealing caps are also available if required.
Gold plated contacts are used throughout, for optimum and consistent data transfer speeds, with EMI/FRI shielding being fitted as standard.
The new RJ45 connectors are available with a choice of options, for example being supplied as a coupler or with PCB-mount or pig-tail terminations. The connectors are designed for 20.75mm diameter or 20.75 x 19.2mm D-style panel cut-outs, with a choice of bayonet or screw connections.
