Industrial plug connector with Profinet technology
Helukabel’s Helukat RJ45 Cat5 IP20 Profinet plug connector has built-in connection technology and a linear and angled design that makes it useful for tight installation spaces in industrial applications. Helukat has colored contact elements designed to prevent the installer from committing connection errors. The metal housing enables it to be used in industrial applications. Transmission rates are up to 100 MHz Cat 5. The shielded plug connector comes in a linear, 180-deg version and an angled, 90-deg version. It also has an operating temperature of -20 C to 70 C. The Helukat RJ45 Cat5 IP20 is compatible with AWG 22 and AWG 24 cables, and designed to be used with both bunched and solid wire conductor types. The Profinet plug connector can be installed without the need for tools. The single wires must be arranged in accordance with the color coding of the RJ45 plug and, in the folded-up guide element, inserted into the contact points up to the stop. To achieve a full connection, the user presses the guide element downward to the stop, closes the housing cover, and fixes the front screw cap with a quarter rotation.
