Multi-Contact's modular CombiTac connector system has been expanded to include two types of data transfer connections. Contact carriers are now available for Ethernet cabling and for field bus systems such as Profibus, Interbus and CANbus.

These data options join the wide range of connector combinations offered by the compact and versatile CombiTac system, which includes power, coaxial, fibre optics and even air and cooling fluids.

The CAT 5 IEEE 802.3 Ethernet contact carriers have two RJ45 sockets, connected to 8-pole gold-plated plugs or sockets on the opposite side.

The CT-NET bus contact carriers, rated at CAT 6, can hold one or two 8-pole male or female connectors. The Multi-Contact contacts are gold plated, and have Multilam(R) torsion spring elements for improved reliability. Termination is by crimping for flexible copper conductors with cross-sections from 0.25 mm2 to 0.75 mm2.

"Unlike many other connector systems, CombiTac is designed to withstand a high number of mating cycles," said Multi-Contact UK managing director Selwyn Corns.

All the contact carriers are made in plastic and all sockets provide continuous shielding. The operating temperature range is -40degC to +90degC.

Available with IP65 protection, the connector system has a wide range of applications in data acquisition, transmission and control systems in sectors such as rail and defence.
