TTI Europe offers industrial Mini I/O connector

TTI Europe is now stocking the industrial Mini I/O connectors from TE Connectivity. The Mini I/O range of connectors provides high levels of vibration, shock and EMI resistance, in a compact size, to deliver reliable high performance in rugged industrial applications, especially in IIOT and collaborative robotics.

TE Connectivity’s Mini I/O connectors are said to offer superior performance over traditional RJ45 connectors in industrial environments, particularly in applications such as motor drives that are susceptible to shock and vibration. When equipment vibrates or shakes, contacts typically move. The design of the Mini I/O has two separate contact points, so that if the contacts move, at least one point always remains connected to avoid complete signal interruption.

The Mini I/O connectors have good signal integrity and the connections support Power over Ethernet (PoE), PoE+, PoE++ (IEEE802.3at and IEEE802.3bt), with data rates from 10Mbps up to 10Gbps. The mini connectors have excellent EMI resistance thanks to 360-degree metal shielding. Furthermore, the EMI and signal integrity are optimised by the signal path design and the 360-degree shielding brings next generations to Cat6A performance.

Mini I/O connectors are a space-saving solution, being only 25% of the size of traditional RJ45 plug. As such they provide critical space saving on a PCB and are a compact wire-to-board connector system for industrial communications. In this case, the connectors are ideal for robotics applications which have limited interior space and control cabinets where space is a constraint.

Mini I/O cable assemblies are compatible with existing systems and have been designed to connect Mini I/O to Mini I/O and Mini I/O to RJ45 as required by the application. This also enables easy retrofitting where needed. Furthermore, the connectors can be fitted in situ simply on 8- or 4-wire legacy cabling, without special tools.

“The industry keeps asking for smaller, more reliable solutions that go beyond what is currently available in the market for IIoT. We are extremely pleased to now offer the industrial Mini I/O to our customers,” said TTI’s Markus Lorenz. “These durable products are fast becoming an integral part of industrial network implementations thanks to their excellent reliability.

“Additionally, they are easy to install in less than a minute, since they support automatic wire cut-off, rather than having to terminate the wires with soldering. This is a significant advantage compared to similar competing technologies. They are an excellent example of the wide range of solutions we offer as part of our 2022 Smart Factory – Industrial Network initiative.”

The portfolio of industrial Mini I/O connectors consists of various board and cable connectors, including jack, plug or receptacle styles, and cable-to-board or cable-to-cable connector systems.
