VARIOSUB Industrial Data Connection Family Expands
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - Phoenix Contact's VARIOSUB plug connector family has expanded to include connection systems for industrial Firewire, USB and SC RJ (fiber optics). These new additions to the VARIOSUB family now enable cabling and connection solutions to reach the factory floor, providing new data connection options for device and machine builders.
The VARIOSUB SC RJ fiber optic connection system is ideal for transmitting data over long distances or in high noise areas, where EMI is a concern. Designed in accordance with IEC 18801, the SC RJ is suitable for gigabit Ethernet transmissions. The SC duplex connection enables both single and multi-mode fibers to be used for GOF as well as POF and HCS types.
The USB connection system is compatible with USB 2.0 specifications at a transmission rate of 480 Mbps. The type A and B bulkhead and ribbon cable female inserts allow the connector to be mounted directly on a device or a panel wall. Shielded patch cables are also available for IP67 or standard USB types A and B.
The Firewire connection system allows for the connection of peripherals for industrial PCs when high data transmission rates using real time are required. The connector is compatible to IEEE 1394 at a transmission rate of 400 Mbps. Female inserts for female-to-female and female-to-flat ribbon cable are designed to be device- or panel-mounted. In addition, preassembled patch cables are available.
All VARIOSUB data connection systems have plug-and-play capability; no tools are required, making installation easy and error-free. These connectors meet the requirements for IP67 against dirt and moisture.
