American CONEC Corp. is introducing its water-resistant Ethernet I/O port connectors with a special flange-mount for deployment in harsh environments such as security and surveillance equipment, GPS systems, communications, industrial machinery, and test and measurement equipment.
The die-cast nickel-plated IP67-rated water-resistant connectors enable designers to use popular data ports in harsh-environments. The connectors come in Cat5e or Cat6e configurations for increased protection from contamination and moisture, as well as for mechanical stability, temperature resistance, vibration immunity, and EMI/RFI shielding.
The flange-mounted IP67-rated RJ45 connector with gold-plated contacts can be front or rear-mounted to a maximum panel thickness of 3.20 millimeters, and operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. The connectors have a 1/6th turn bayonet coupling, and are operable with gloved hands.
The RJ45 connectors seal out dust and weather with a silicone ring seal that creates a watertight connection to the panel.
