Tyco Electronics Corp. has added a printed circuit board-mounting receptacle to its rugged sealed line of industrial Ethernet RJ-45 connectors. The connector uses a through-hole mounting, with two plastic legs providing additional mechanical retention before and after soldering. The connectors are threaded for panel mounting with a supplied coupling nut. The PCB-mounting version joins the expanding lineup of IP67-rated, ODVA-compliant performance connectors suited for EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, and ControlNet applications. The modular plug and jack connectors offer IP 67 sealing and a quick-connect bayonet coupling that meet IEC 61076-3-106 Variant 1 specifications. The coupling mechanism offers positive locking for reliable connections in harsh environments. The housings are polarized to prevent mis-mating.
