Circular Ethernet connector tackles industrial applications

Designed for industrial Ethernet applications, Tyco Electronics has introduced a sealed RJ-45 connector that meets Ethernet/IP RJ-45 requirements and standards. This new rugged connector is also able to withstand the extreme conditions often found in industrial applications such as machinery on the factory floor, diagnostic equipment in the medical and instrumentation fields, communications equipment, printers and other Ethernet applications where the connector requirement calls for ruggedization and sealing.
