Modular jacks

ERNI offers high-temperature modular jacks with integrated magnetics for many industrial designs that require an extended operating temperature range. These 10/100 Ethernet right-angle ganged and single-port versions operate over the temperature range of -40C to 85C.

The modular jacks with integrated magnetics for 10/100 Ethernet are available in right-angle configurations (ganged 1 x 2, 1 x 4 and single port) and as vertical single-port devices. The single-port versions offer grounding shields with panel flanges on the top and on both sides. All of these jacks meet IEC60603-7 performance requirements.

The 10/100 magnetics are available in three configurations: with resistors on unused pairs but without an internal capacitor, with resistors on unused pairs and an internal capacitor, or with a Bob Smith termination. The modular jacks are available for all Ethernet data rates.

These ModJacks are based on a patented design and meet FCC and IEEE 802.3 requirements for voltage isolation and performance. The products are offered in single port, multi-port ganged, vertical and tab-up configurations. Versions with different-colored LEDs are also available. ERNI introduced its initial offering of modular jacks with integrated magnetics for 10/100 Ethernet last year.

Pricing starts at $2.80 in volume for the extended temperature range devices.
