Harting is introducing RJ45 PCB jacks with built-in transformers as the latest additions to its its RJ Industrial RJ45 connector family.
The highly compact dimensions of these RJ45 connectors enable convenient and simple integration into all established IP65/IP67 interface types, from PushPull to Han 3A.
Furthermore, the reduced height of the new jacks is also an advantage in scenarios involving plug-in cards, allowing the realisation of very low-profile assemblies and modules. The first products to be introduced are versions for 10/100Mbit/s and 1Gbit/s transmission speeds, while versions for PoE as well as individual adaptations to specific customer wishes are planned and can be rapidly executed.
For designs incorporating surface-mount LEDs on the printed circuit board, integrated light pipes enable signalling of the port status to convenient locations.
Harting says that these industry-standard female connectors can be processed by all standard soldering methods such as wave soldering or SMT reflow.
