Water-resistant Ethernet connectors for harsh outdoor environments introduced by CONEC

GARNER, N.C., 13 May 2012. American CONEC Corp. in Garner, N.C., is introducing 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, CONEC officials say.

"These compact connectors offer a robust solution to extreme weather conditions or the hazards of factory processes, yet remain fully compatible with standard cables and interconnect products," says Peter Persico, technical support specialist at CONEC.

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. For more information contact CONEC online at www.conec.com.
