RS Components has introduced a highly robust series of connectors for industrial applications from Hirose. The ix Industrial series meets all the requirements for space-constrained applications and can support I/O signal transmission speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second.
The connectors possess the potential to reduce installation space by up to 75% compared to RJ45 based solutions. The new Hirose ix Industrial series supports CAT5e (1-Gbps) and CAT6A (10-Gbps) cabling and features an optimized rugged and reliable EMI and ESD shielding design.
The Key Characteristics of the Series Include:
- availability with two keying codes for Ethernet and non-Ethernet applications
- IEC PAS 61076-3-124 standard compliant
- a current rating of 1.5A for all 10 contacts
- 3A capability on pins 1, 2, 6 and 7
- voltage rating of 50V
- 5000 mating cycles
- operating temperature of from –40 up to +85°C
The connector receptacle can be mounted in parallel with a pitch distance of only 10mm, which enables close side-by-side positioning of multiple connectors on a single PCB. The receptacle shell is PCB mounted via through-hole solder legs to enhance PCB retention, and the wire-termination unit and cable clamp are integrated into a single plug shell. Additionally, the snap-in I/O plug connector offers a positive metal lock, which provides a clear tactile click to ensure secure mating.
The ix Industrial series is suitable for a range of industrial applications including factory automation controllers, industrial robotics, servo amplifiers, PLCs and many others such as security systems.
