Ultra-fast data transmission in harsh environments

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Three series of Category 6 Ethernet connectors from Amphenol are now available through TTI. Amphenol's Socapex RJ Field Cat 6 interconnects feature a data rate of 1Gbyte/s under 250MHz.They are designed for Ethernet networks in harsh environments and provide shock and vibration protection, plus sealing against dust and fluid ingress to IP68.

The range is compatible with data transmission 10 BaseT, 100 BaseTX and 1000 BaseT up to 250MHz per EIA/TIA 568 and ClassE per ISO 11801 and is suited for used in factory automation, entertainment systems, video systems, geophysics, sensors and machine tools.

The RJF5446 Series is compliant with IEC 60603-7 variant 12.Featuring push/pull coupling for speed of handling in the field and is compatible with 6 to 13mm diameter cable. It is also claimed to withstand more than 1000 hours of salt spray exposure and is also fire retardant/low smoke qualified to UL94 V0 and NFF 16102, DIN 5510-2.

The RJFRB Series is a plastic interconnect designed primarily for industrial and telecoms applications, but it also suits robotics and motion control.It is compatible with cable diameters from 5.5 to 7mm and its patented RJStop system enables standard RJ45 cordsets to be used in a protective composite plug which protects against shock, dust and fluid.

For applications requiring an Atex Zone 2 compliant connector, the RJFTV6X Series circular connector has a metallic shell and meets industrial Ethernet specification EN60079-15 for Zone 2, Class I, Division 2, low-power non-sparking connectors.
