HARTING has expanded its RJ Industrial series with new RJ45 female connectors featuring integral transformers for operation at 10 Gbit/s. These connectors are extremely compact and enable simple integration into all established IP 65/67 interface types, from PushPull through to Han 3A.
The reduced height is also an advantage in scenarios involving plug-in cards, allowing the realisation of very flat assemblies and modules. In addition to the new 10 Gbit/s types, versions for 10/100 Mbit/s and 1 Gbit/s are also available. Versions for Power over Ethernet (PoE) as well as individual adaptations to specific customer wishes are possible and can be rapidly executed.
In connection with surface-mount LEDs on the customer PCB, integrated optical fibres enable signalling of the port status.
These industrial female connectors can be processed in all standard soldering methods such as wave-soldering or SMT reflow.
