Bel Magnetic Solutions, a Bel group company involved in the design and manufacture of MagJack integrated connector modules (ICMs), recently introduced the 2x1 1-G 30- and 60-W Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) MagJack ICMs for networking and telecommunication applications.
According to the company, the ICMs are compact and durable as they combine two RJ45 Ethernet ports into one magnetic connector that can be used to safely inject 30 or 60 W of power. This makes them suitable for customers who are looking to save board space by stacking RJ45 connectors together, grouping the Ethernet magnetics within the connector and enabling the magnetics to inject power onto data lines.
A majority of today's communication equipment offers the capability of providing or accepting PoE. Bel Magnetic Solutions claims their line of ICMs offer smaller, higher density connectors that are capable of this functionality. They support a wide range of 1GBase-T Ethernet applications and can operate in harsh industrial conditions including an industrial operating temperature range of -40 to 85˚C without degrading performance.
The 30- and 60-W PoE MagJack ICMs meet all IEEE 802.3 1GBase-T electrical requirements, including RL, IL, hipot, and common-mode parameters. Thus, the ICMs are well-suited for use in switches, routers, single-board computers, and Ethernet controllers, says the company. The common part numbers are 0895-2C1R-GK and 0895-2C1R-GVH.
