RJ45 Connector System For Harsh Environments

Lane Electronics has announced a rugged RJ45 connector system designed to satisfy those applications where totally reliable Ethernet communications are needed in harsh environments. According to Lane, the new RJ45 connector system is designed to meet the requirements of VG95234 and is a cost effective solution compared to D38999 versions and more rugged than those developed to meet MIL-DTL-26482.

The connector system is secure, resistant to water ingress and vibration and, importantly, withstands “pulling” on the cable in applications such as automation, process control and outdoor military communications.

Manufactured by the connector specialist Allied Connectors, the new RJ45 connector system comprises a panel mount receptacle and a male plug connector and, when mated, provides protection to IP67. The connector system is designed to be used with shielded Cat6A cables and features internal grounding.

The panel mount connector has been designed to allow two female Ethernet sockets to be mounted back-to-back so that an RJ45 male connector can be mated on either side. On the outer side of the panel the connector mates with the plug connector that houses the male RJ45 connector.

The shell is made from Aluminium Alloy with Nickel plating as standard. Other finishes and backshell types are available on request.
