Samtec has expanded its line of IP68-rated sealed interconnect systems with the Acclimate sealed rectangular Ethernet cable plug and receptacle for industrial environments.

The system is designed for harsh environments and features a silicon seal that meets IP68 specifications for dust and waterproof sealing.

The rectangular design is said to save space compared with traditional IP68 interconnects, making the system particularly well suited for smaller and lower-profile applications.

In addition, a push-to-seal positive latching system with audible click slows for easier mating and requires less space for mating connectors and cables.

Acclimate rectangular Ethernet panel-mount sockets (RPBE series) meet CAT5e, CAT, and CAT3 specifications and are available in either single- or dual-port designs.

The cable plug (RCE series) is available double-ended (both ends sealed) or with a blunt cut (one end sealed).

The rugged 28 AWG cable, with copper conductors and PVC jacket, comes in a choice of 2, 3 or 5m assembled lengths.

Dust caps for protection while the system is unmated are available for both cable plugs and sockets.

In addition to the Ethernet system, Samtec also offers IP68-rated sealed rectangular Acclimate cable plug and receptacle featuring rugged Tiger Eye contacts on .050in pitch.

A power system on .100in pitch is in development.

IP68-rated sealed circular acclimate systems include cable plugs and receptacles with a choice of Tiger Eye highly reliable contacts, Ethernet, USB, Mini USB, power or high-density inserts.

Customer sealed interconnect designs are also available.
