Special SUYIN service: UL approval upon request for any connector or cable
For companies that want to export to the US or Canada, there is no way around gaining certification of their electronic products to the standards of Underwriters Laboratories (UL). UL approval indicates to customers and users that the product complies with essential safety guidelines for the American market. However, this approval is not just required at the system level, but rather for nearly every individual component. As a result, this affects each individual connector and each type of cable used within a system. For this reason, SUYIN offers its customers a special service for gaining UL certification from Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (if this has not already been done) for any connector or cable selected from SUYIN's extensive range of offerings. Regardless of the order volume or the desired approval category, SUYIN takes care of the complete process. Here, it can be a special challenge to gain certification for a product for an atypical category, such as earning UL approval of

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.
