CONEC has advanced its IP67-rated RJ45 family of connectors to include Ethernet I/O ports with a dual bayonet in-line coupler that can be used as a true in-line extension. The dual bayonet coupling mechanism is in compliance with IEC 61076-3-106 and provides increased protection for the connector system against contamination and moisture. Ideal for harsh applications such as industrial machinery, security and surveillance equipment, test and measurement equipment, and GPS systems and communications, the IP67-rated RJ45 industrial Ethernet connector delivers mechanical stability, temperature resistance, vibration immunity and EMI/RFI shielding.

The new in-line coupler features a 1/6th turn dual bayonet coupling mechanism for fast and secure IP67-sealed mate/unmate, even with gloved hands. The IP67-rated RJ45 dual bayonet locking connector is available in two different housing materials, durable black polyester plastic or ABS nickel-plated plastic.

The product line includes a variety of panel-mounted receptacles, mating plugs, protective caps and pre-terminated jumper cables including cables suitable for outdoor use and direct burial with jackets that can be color coded to match the in-line couplers.

The IP67 RJ45 connectors ensure a continuously secure connection and are dustproof and weatherproof, with a silicone ring seal that makes a watertight connection if mounted to a panel.

The RJ45 Cat.5e in-line coupling is available unshielded or shielded and the RJ45 Cat. 6A in-line coupling is available in a shielded version. A protective cap is also available.

The connectors are available from $10.00 – $14.00 in OEM quantities, with a lead-time of stock to four weeks.
