Product Details Supplier Info More products

Three series of Category 6 Ethernet connectors from Amphenol are now available in Europe through TTI. Amphenol’s Socapex RJ Field Cat 6 interconnects feature a fast data rate of 1Gb/sec under 250MHz and are available in three different series.

They are designed for Ethernet networks in harsh environments and provide shock and vibration protection, as well as sealing against dust and fluid ingress to IP68.

The range extension retains the advantage of Amphenol’s patented RJStop concept, which enables a standard RJ45 cordset to be terminated in the field without tools or cabling operations. The new range is compatible with data transmission 10 BaseT, 100 BaseTX and 1000 BaseT up to 250MHz per EIA/TIA 568 and ClassE per ISO 11801.

Key features and benefits

  • The RJF5446 series has a plastic shell and is compliant with IEC 60603-7 variant 12.
  • It features push/pull coupling for speed of handling in the field and is compatible with 6mm- to 13mm-diameter cable.
  • Sealed to IP68 against water ingress, it can also withstand more than 1,000 hours of salt spray exposure and is fire-retardant/low-smoke qualified to UL94 V0 and NFF 16102, DIN 5510-2.
  • Its operating temperature range is -40­ºC to 85ºC.
  • The RJFRB series is a plastic interconnect with reverse bayonet coupling designed primarily for industrial and telecoms applications, but it is also suitable for robotics and motion control.
  • It is compatible with cable diameters from 5.5mm to 7mm and its patented RJStop system enables standard RJ45 cordsets to be used in a protective composite plug, which protects against shock, dust and fluid.
  • The RJFRB series is specified to a minimum 500 mating cycles.
  • For applications requiring an Atex Zone 2-compliant connector, the RJFTV6X series circular connector has a metallic shell and meets industrial Ethernet specification EN60079-15 for Zone 2, Class I, Division 2, low-power non-sparking connectors. 
  • The Socapex RJField Cat 6 series will also benefit applications including factory automation, entertainment systems, video systems, geophysics, sensors and machine tools.
