Watertight Industrial Ethernet Connectors


Harrisburg, PA - The Variosub RJ-45/IP67 connector from Phoenix Contact has been specially developed to withstand adverse conditions associated with use directly on machinery and in industrial installations, and to protect the RJ-45 contact insert. It meets IAONA requirements for heavy-duty use, thus enabling the office world's standard connector to be used in harsh industrial Ethernet environments.

To provide protection against dirt and moisture, the Variosub meets protection category IP67. The housing, made from an impact- and temperature-resistant, UV-stable polyamide, is resistant to chemicals, oils, and greases and is built to withstand impacts and vibration. The connector is also protected against the effects of forces pulling the mounting and hood sides apart, forces pulling the cables out of the cable grip, and lateral forces on the connector housing. It also provides EMI Shielding.

No tools are needed to lock the plug housing to the mounting frame-it is a "plug and play" operation. This simplifies set up and maintenance, since connectors are easy to unplug, plug in, and move.

Variosub RJ-45 connectors are suitable for fast Ethernet transmissions at 100 Mbps in accordance with Class D or Category 5 of EN 50173, 2001 revision. This standard, also called Cat 5+, represents future security and sufficient spare capacity for plant modernization. The Variosub connector is compatible with standard RJ:45, allowing customary cables and test equipment from the office world to be used without cumbersome adapters.

Phoenix Contact Inc. Quality System is registered to ISO 9001: 1994 - Quality Systems Model for Quality Assurance in design, development, production, installation and servicing.
