CONEC’s IP67-rated RJ45 connector family now includes Ethernet I/O ports with the addition of a dual-bayonet in-line coupler. By offering IP67 protection at both ends between two connectors, end users can panel-mount or create an in-line extension. The 1/6th-turn dual-bayonet coupling mechanism complies with IED 61076-3-106, offering increased protection against contamination and moisture. It enables fast and secure IP67-sealed mate/unmate, even with gloved hands. The sensors feature mechanical stability, temperature resistance, vibration immunity, and EMI/RFI shielding. The coupler comes in two different housings: black polyester plastic or ABS nickel-plated plastic. Applications include those with harsh environments, such as industrial machinery, security and surveillance equipment, test and measurement equipment, and GPS systems and communications.
