New RJ-45 plug-in connectors from Tyco Electronics for SafetyNET p Ethernet systems

20 FEBRUARY 2009

With the new RJ-45 modular plug for field assembly, Tyco Electronics has introduced a powerful RJ-45 plug-in connector for Fast and Gigabit Ethernet. Designed for a transmission rate from 100 Mbit/s (4-pin) to 1,000 Mbit/s (8-pin), it is ideal for industrial automation and therefore suitable for Ethernet systems such as SafetyNET p. The plug-in connector is designed with quick-connect technology in accordance with the common core principle, thereby enabling simple, time-saving and yet extremely reliable installation. The common core principle means that the connector core is integrated into a range of housing types. Interfaces with IP20 to IP65/67 protection can be implemented based on this intelligent connector platform, bringing considerable user benefits and low equipment costs. These innovative connectors are also used in conventional, Ethernet-based automation and network technology. Increasing pressure on both time and price, high wage costs and indirect labour costs, smaller loads and intense competition all demand ever higher productivity. That means the installation time for the control technology gets ever shorter. At the same time, it’s important to guarantee high availability for the production plants.
