It is hard not to notice RJ45 applications in the devices we use daily. It can be found in applications from consumer, automation, network areas & many more. It is one of the most common communication connectors that you can find today. In the industrial Ethernet, HMS commented a steady growth rate of 20% in 2019 which is 59% of the Industrial Network market.
Phoenix Contact provides the right device interface through robust data connectors for the industrial IP20 environment. With a new product range of RJ45 connectors, Phoenix Contact has developed a robust design for cable and device connectors tailored to these application areas. The Industrial series RJ45 design provides a higher level of reliability over previous standard interfaces. This is achievable thanks to the material selection, the closed design and the mechanically stable sleeve housing which goes far beyond the standard RJ45 systems when it comes to reliability, robustness and degree of protection.
Because device interfaces are often face challenges in terms of extreme temperature, vibration and noise. Phoenix Contact fitted the industrial-series jack with shielded contacts to protect the signal pins from electromagnetic influences, so as to ensure continuous data transmission. Along with improved electromechanical properties, the RJ45 Industrial series also offers increased temperature stability compared to standard RJ45 jack. The special fiberglass-reinforced high-temperature plastic is designed for an operating temperature ranging from -40°C to approximately 105°C.
Adding on the LED displays, it enables the users and maintenance personnel out in the field to easily check the status of the data transmission and, with it, the functionality of the device. The combination of two LED pairs, one yellow and one green, enables the flexible visualization of the electrical functions and the active data connection, depending on how the device has been programmed.
- Data transmission in accordance with CAT6A make it ideal for demanding Ethernet applications.
- Optimized performance for Industrial use due to a high degree of vibration resistance.
- Straight and angled versions with optional housing shielding springs.
- High resistance to ESD and EMC for reliable transmission
- Tray packaging for processing in automated reflow processes.
- Optional LEDs for optical status indication.
