Harsh-environment Ethernet connector system
Now available from PEI-Genesis is Amphenol's 'RJ Field' harsh-environment Ethernet connector system, which provides RJ45-style Cat 5/5e connections in a rugged, sealed and vibration-resistant housing
Suitable for a wide variety of applications in the industrial, telecommunications, transport and military sectors, the RJ Field connectors use a one-step mating system that requires neither tooling nor time-consuming cable preparation and termination procedures.

The plug connectors are designed to depress and protect the RJ45 plastic latch while capturing the complete RJ45 connector in a high-quality insulator. This insulator is then snapped into the plug housing and a simple plastic or metal gland cord grip is tightened on to the cable, providing an IP67 seal in the mated condition.

Featuring an operating temperature range of -40 to 85degC, the RJ Field connectors can be specified in four versions offering MIL-C-26482 metallic shells with bayonet coupling, MIL-C-38999 Series III metallic shells with threaded coupling, circular composite shells with push-pull coupling or rectangular composite shells with a quick lever coupling mechanism.

The connectors meet or exceed the requirements of 10 BaseT, 100 BaseTX and 1000 BaseT networks and are rated for a minimum of 500 mating cycles.
