RJ-45 modular plug suits automation and industrial EthernetWith the new RJ-45 modular plug for field assembly, Tyco Electronics is introducing a powerful RJ-45 plug-in connector for Fast and Gigabit Ethernet. Designed for a transmission rate from 100Mbit/s (four-pin) to 1000Mbit/s (eight-pin), it is suitable for industrial automation and 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 very 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 modular connector platform, bringing considerable user benefits and lower 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 is important to guarantee high availability for production plant. Tyco Electronics offers an extensive product range that includes active and passive components for Industrial Ethernet:

  • Modular RJ-45 connector for field installation with quick-connect technology in protection classes IP20 to IP65/67
  • Fast and Gigabit Ethernet switches from the TES series in a compact, rugged design
  • Media converter (copper <-> FO) from the TEC series
  • Device server (serial <-> Ethernet) from the TED series for RS 232/422/485
  • Fibre-optic patch cable
  • Industrial Ethernet cable and tools
  • Cable assemblies
