Y-Con RJ45 jack with magnetic filter and LED light pipes

The Y-ConJack-31 is a new RJ45 connector jack for PCB with integrated magnetic filter, and LED light pipes for the function display. The jack is particularly suited to industrial applications such as industrial ethernet. The function principle of the integrated magnetic filter module definitely makes a decisive contribution to the signal conditioning, thanks to the galvanic separation (potential separation) and the additional components. Overlayed disruptions are thus effectively separated or faded out by the wanted signal. Current peaks, highly frequented overlays or electro smog can lead to malfunctions in the applications, particularly in an industrial environment.
The 90°-angled jack for the THR PCB is also fitted with an all-round optimised EMC shielding made of nickel-plated brass.
The two integrated light pipes on the left and right next to the mating face lead the light forwards onto each of the LED light sources mounted onto the PCB, hence emitting a function signal. The colour selection is dependent only on the LED which is used, hence making the jack very flexible for all applications.
Besides this, like all diverse versions of the Y-ConRJ45 plugs and jacks, the Y-ConJack-31 is fitted with data contacts and two additional power contacts. A major advantage of the Y-Con RJ45 series, these power contacts are universally integrated into all components. This makes costly double wiring superfluous for electrical supplies, which would have to be protected especially for raw field applications. That would mean double the amount of work and expense, which Yamaichi solutions resourcefully avoid.
Within the Y-ConRJ45 series the described component can additionally be protected as per protection classes IP69K, IP68, IP67 and IP20 from external mechanical environmental influences. Reliable protective housing made from high-quality materials such as PBT or zinc die-casting are a component of the series.
As with all products from Yamaichi Electronics this too is RoHS compliant.
