Tyco Electronics has introduced a line of sealed RJ-45 industrial Ethernet connectors that is designed for use in demanding manufacturing, processing, and commercial applications.

The connectors combine a mini-form circular housing with an RJ-45 receptacle. The receptacles are available in a variety of configurations including a 110 punchdown block for premises wiring applications, a receptacle for PCB installation, and a passthrough receptacle to bring Ethernet to a control box and create a sealed interface rated for IP67.

The connectors are molded from ABS for the standard version with additional materials available for outdoor applications requiring UV stabilization. The RJ-45 jack contacts are copper with nickel underplating and gold finish. Mating cycles are rated at up to 250.

Electrical performance is rated at 1.5A, 125Vdc. The 110 punchdown and bulkhead passthrough are Cat.5e, while the direct PCB mount receptacle is Cat.5-compliant.

The company has also released RJ-45 and RJ-11 cordsets that uses a standard RJ-45 or RJ-11 plug and adds strain relief, as well as a locking mechanism that seals the connector when mated with an appropriate receptacle.
