Weidmuller  now have a gigabit-capable family of connectors for industrial Ethernet available, all featuring SteadyTec technology and based on a modular platform concept.

These new fully shielded gigabit-capable connectors require no tools for termination and assembly in the field, support transmission rates of up to 10 Gbit, and are Cat. 6 capable.

The compact dimensions of the modular, variant 4 industrial Ethernet line housing are comparable to those of an M12 connector, and the housing is designed to accept a range of inserts, such as RJ45 and fibre-optic inserts.

The RJ45 connectors, with IP67 rating, support all the different industrial ethernet protocols on the market, and the fibre-optic connectors are equipped with a rapid termination technique and can be utilised for 50µm and 62.5µm Plastic Optical Fibre (POF), Plastic Cladded Fibre (PCF) and Glass Optical Fibre (GOP). By using copper or fibre-optic cables, users can cover distances of a few meters through to several kilometres.

Key features of these industrial ethernet connectors include:

  • no tool termination and assembly in the field
  • robust, stable, high-quality plastic and die-cast zinc housings 
  • vibration proof, shock proof and resistant to mechanical stresses
  • 100% waterproof housing
  • optimum protection of copper and fibre-optic inserts
  • housing material for every application
  • housing resistant to dirt, electrolytes, acids, grease and oils
  • SteadyTec plastics and metals which can be utilised reliably in acid temperatures from -40°C to +70°C.
