ERNI, represented in Australia by Erntec Pty Ltd , has developed a broad range of modular jacks, with integrated magnetics, for 10/100 Ethernet. These jacks are right-angle, single- port configurations meeting IEC60603-7 performance requirements and GR-1089-CORE compliant lightning strike protection.
The GR-1089-CORE standard applies to service provider network equipment and covers electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrical safety. Two different circuit designs are available to fulfill different customer performance and cost needs.
PHY side diodes provide a low-cost solution for many applications. Cable side, high-voltage diodes offer the highest level of protection.
Both circuits are footprint compatible with, and drop-in replaceable for, standard 10/100 modular jacks with integrated magnetics.
The single-port modular jacks with integrated magnetics provide effective grounding through shields with panel flanges on top and on both sides. Versions with integrated LEDs are available in a variety of colours.
In addition to modular jacks with integrated magnetics compatible with common PHYs, ERNI can customise products to meet customer’s specific circuit-design needs.
Connectors for all Ethernet data rates are available. The modular jacks are based on a patented design and specified to meet FCC and IEEE 802.3 requirements for voltage isolation and performance. The products are offered in single port, multi-port ganged, and multi-port stacked and ganged connector configurations.
The new modular jacks are available immediately.
