Easy-to-install industrial connectors
14 October 2014
TE Connectivity (TE) has launched a range of ruggedised industrial RJ45 connectors for industrial use.
The new products include an industrial RJ45 push-pull variant 14 connector with a plastic shell, and an industrial RJ45/fibre optic push-pull variant 14 with a metal shell.
Both connectors feature an IEC 61076-3-117 standardised interface for quick and easy connect and disconnect, and the robust termination technology used is said to allow for timesaving and flexible field installation without the need for special tools. The push-pull mechanism promises a secure, sealed interconnection in which all common cable diameters can be terminated. Both offer high grade IP shielding and temperature resistance, making them suitable for harsh and outdoor environments.
In addition to supporting RJ45, the metal shell version also supports fibre optics. With its metal shell, this RJ45/fibre optic connector is able to withstand the harshest environments, such as shock, vibration or temperature, and offers good chemical, oil and spark resistance.
Applications for the plastic shell version are said to include factory automation, sealed automation units, decentralised applications, cabinet-outlets, manufacturing cells and lines for the automotive industry, solar and wind parks, train communication, and data networks. The metal shell version is suited for automotive production, welding machines, machinery, motors/motor controls and robotics.
Both versions are able to operate in a wide temperature range of from -40°C to +70°C.
