The new connectors feature support for Cat 6a wiring installations allowing for reduced crosstalk and system noise.Cat 6a doubles the system bandwidth to 500MHz and is capable of speeds up to 10Gbit/s over distances of 100 metres, thereby supporting the high levels of data throughput required in modern systems. Moreover, as Bulgin’s Cat 6a connectors are shielded and sealed against dust and moisture, they are ideal for use in harsh industrial environments.Made from self-extinguishing UL94V-0 rated polyester, the new panel mount connectors mate with existing Cat 6a patch cord flex connectors and a standard RJ45 patchcord can be plugged in the rear for easy connectivity. The single hole fixing devices include a panel sealing gasket and can be supplied with an earth wire if required.When mated, the RoHS compliant connectors meet IP69K and IP68 at a depth of 10m for two weeks. They are rated to operate in temperatures from -20°C to +70°C. Cat 5e versions are also available as is a shielding backshell accessory for the PX0833 series. Detailed 3D models are available to allow for rapid and easy mechanical design.Commenting on the two new series, Christian Taylor, Sustaining Engineering Team Leader at Bulgin said: “Cabling is a long term asset and with data rates continuing to grow, installing the latest high-speed network infrastructure will extend the life of the system and ultimately save cost. Copper-based Ethernet offers the advantage of being able to carry power to small network devices and remains significantly lower cost than alternative technologies such as fiber optic.”For more information, please click here.
