“These connectors present engineers with all the attributes necessary to meet the ISO11801 Class D standard for up to 100Mbit/s fast Ethernet signal transmissions,” according to RS Components, which is stocking the parts.
They have 0.8mm diameter contact pins rated at up to 4A at 40°C, work at 50Vac and 60Vdc, and are protected against water ingress to IP67.
Field attachable, the connectors include axial female and male variants and come with optional screw connections (female) or crimp connections (both female and male).
3, 4, 5 and 8pin versions are available, with either through-hole or surface PCB mounting. Flying-lead and chassis mount from the front or back options are available, as is shielding.
Ethernet-based communication applications are foreseen, including industrial interfaces for control, sensors, cameras and robots.
