Ethernet field wireable connector takes an IP67 washdown
Turck announces an IP 67 Bayonet Style RJ45/Ethernet field wireable connector, an extension of the company’s RJ45 connector line. These connectors are designed to provide protection in washdown applications or in areas of high impact. The bayonet style mating prevents over tightening, which can cause damage to the connector and pins, in addition to under tightening, which can lead to ingression. Furthermore, the bayonet style locking mechanism requires only a quarter turn to attach and lock.
Developed specifically to provide protection against water, the IP 67 Bayonet Style RJ45/Ethernet field wireable connector is water resistant in depths of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. Additionally, the connector features CAT 5e performance, which allows data transmission at speeds of up to 1000 Mbps (1 Gigabit per second) and performance in harsh environments, including applications using toxic chemicals.
The IP 67 Bayonet Style RJ45/Ethernet connector is available in plastic and metal models, providing ideal operation in a wide range of industries including automotive, machine building and food processing. Additionally, the connector works in all Ethernet applications.
