Field-Installable Industrial Ethernet Connector Requires No Tools
Bensheim -- June 18, 2010 -- Now available from Tyco Electronics is an IP65/67 field installable Industrial Ethernet RJ-45 push-pull connector. Utilizing the company's common core design, the product can be applied in the field without the need for any tools. This significantly reduces installation time and costs. The fast termination technology is used in all field installable connector series of Tyco Electronics, including IP20, ODVA compliant, push-pull and HTS connectors.
Designed for use in harsh industrial environments, such as sealed automation units, decentralized applications, cabinet-outlets, manufacturing cells and lines in the automotive industry, as well as solar parks and wind parks, the IP65/67 field installable Industrial Ethernet RJ-45 connector features a comfortable push-pull mechanism. This push-pull mechanism, together with the jack-side frame provides a secure, sealed interconnection and makes the connector well suited to withstand severe shocks and vibrations.
Suitable for use with four-wire AWG 22 and eight-wire AWG 26 cables, the Industrial Ethernet RJ-45 push-pull connector comes with protective covers for both the plug and receptacle for extra protection when not mated. An eight-position high performance insert [with eight pins] will be available soon, as will be five support and packing frame variants, including a frame with seal and screws for use with PCBs, a frame with SL 110 Jack shielded for Cat5e, a frame with 6SSL Jack for Cat6 and a frame with shielded/unshielded couplers.
Meeting TIA/EIA 568 Category 5e requirements, the RJ-45 push-pull connector also complies with the IEC61076-3-117 -- Variant 14 standard. Featuring UV resistant housings, the device has been designed for a wide operating temperature range from -40 up to +70 degrees Celsius.
