Yamaichi Electronics has launched the Y-ConRJ45 converter cable, a RJ45 cable assembly that is equipped with M8/M12 circular connectors on the other end of the cable for industrial use.

The cable assembly is said to be suitable for the connection of sensor applications in industrial Ethernet environments.

The high-quality Y-ConRJ45 cable assembly series has been extended to the mechanical engineering sector as well as for industrial and factory automation use.

As a converter cable it allows simple cabling from Industrial Ethernet to sensors, actuators and encoders, whose wiring is realised by M8/M12 circular connectors.

The RJ45 interface is realised with the current Y-Con connector range.

They have up to eight signal contacts, can include two additional power contacts (2.1A at 70C) and can be equipped with covers from IP20 to IP69K protection.

For the M8/M12 interfaces there is a variety of cable and panel-mount connectors available, in male and female, 90deg or 180deg, coded or uncoded version (A, B or D code).

All moulded M8/M12 cable versions benefit from a 360deg shielding, which is added prior to the moulding with high-quality PUR material.

Therefore they ensure optimum EMI characteristics.

The metal screw has an audible closure ratchet and is equipped with a vibration-resistant locking to ensure the interface does not open during operation.

All mating connectors available on the market (also those with Quick-Lock) are compatible with the series.

Jacks and plugs are offered in three, four, five or eight-pin versions.

The Y-ConRJ45 as well as the M8 or M12 connectors offer the necessary protection against environmental influences according to the protection classes IP67 or IP20 (Y-Con also IP69K and IP68).

Reliable covers made of high-quality materials such as PBT polymer or metallic zinc die-castings are standard features of the series.
