Yamaichi Electronics continues build out its Y-Circ M M12 product series and Y-Circ P push-pull circular connector series with a CAT6A version in each series. The M12 in CAT6A is IP68 protected and meets the strictest quality standards for secure contact. The same is true of the CAT6A push-pull in IP50. This is particularly vital for demanding applications in industrial environments.

The CAT6A version is based on the familiar modular system of the Y-Circ M, in which 360° shielding and vibration protection can be added by modular configuration. This X-coded, IEC 61076-2-109-compliant connector permits interference-free transmission of signals up to 10Gb/s.

Special insulating inserts were developed for high-speed data transmission. To ensure conformity with CAT6A, the pin layout in the insulator was fully redesigned. This particular layout is available in the diameters of 12 and 15mm. So far, this is unique on the market. Even at the smaller size 12, 10Gb/s can be achieved. The customer can select the specific connector size in accordance with their requirements.

Matthias Schuster, Product Manager, Y-Circ product family, Yamaichi Electronics, commented: "The version with X-coding is an extension of our existing CAT6A products in the RJ45 and push-pull areas. This permits Yamaichi Electronics to offer future-ready cabling from our own facilities for high data rates."

To permit fast, flexible production, these high-speed versions in both series are also produced by Yamaichi Electronics in Germany.
