RJ45 Feedthrough Connector and Plug Carrier has protection to IP65
For rugged applications.
From CLIFF™ Electronics.
CLIFF™ Electronics, leaders in the design, development and manufacture of connectivity solutions, have introduced a new Cat5e RJ45 connector to their successful metal feedthrough range. This fits into an industry-standard, XLR-format, 24 mm diameter, panel cut-out. In addition, a compatible, snap-in, locking XLR-style plug carrier is available to facilitate the connection of an RJ45 plug or cable assembly.
The new Cliff™ RJ45 feedthrough jack socket is a rugged, nickel-plated, die-cast, zinc metal construction offering protection to IP65. The dust-tight and water-resistant connector is supplied with an integrated dust cover for continued protection when not in use. Rated at Cat5e the socket is suitable for both fast ethernet (10 / 100 Mbit/s) and gigabit ethernet (10 / 100 / 1000 Mbit/s) data communications.
Widely used in IT systems, consumer and audio / broadcast products Cliff™’s female RJ45 ethernet feedthrough sockets meet the wiring standard for using an 8P8C connector (FCC part 68) and are generally mounted directly onto a device or an I/O patch panel. The all-metal design reduces the effects of EMI.
- Dielectric strength: 1 kV DC.
- Frequency range: from 1 to 100 MHz.
- Contacts: rated at 1.5 A / 50 V.
- Lifetime: greater than 1000 mating cycles.
- Operating temperature: from −30 to +80 °C.
John Hall, managing director of CLIFF™ Electronics. comments,
“Wired ethernet networks remain popular in both industrial and domestic environments as they offer more stable, interference-free and faster data connections than wireless and reduce the risk of data being hacked. Our feedthrough RJ45 jack socket has a wide variety of applications for safe data connectivity for OEMs around the world and brings another variant to our flexible feedthrough connector range.”
more stable, interference-free and faster
CLIFF™ are leaders in the design and manufacture of standard and feedthrough connectors which mount into an industry standard XLR-format, 24 mm diameter, cut-out. This allows 16 connectors to be conveniently mounted on 19″ rack panels which can be supplied pre-assembled. Applications include audio, broadcast, AV, communications installations, medical, education, research and industrial control.
The recently introduced space-saving DualSLIM feedthrough connector series is just 19 mm wide allowing 20 connectors to be assembled on a 19″ rack panel. In addition to the applications above the DualSLIM is commonly used for NUCs and mini-PCs, such as the Raspberry Pi.
