Gigabit Ethernet connector for reliable factory automation networks
28 November 2015
The GigaDock 1 heavy duty gigabit Ethernet connector from Multi-Contact is suitable for automated docking systems in harsh industrial environments, withstanding up to one million mating cycles.
Once fitted to a docking plate, the pre-wired Cat6a connectors are ready for use with M12 eight pole X-coded patch cables. Available with straight or space-saving 90 degree angled cable outlets, they are fully insulated and have 360 degree shielding, making them ideal for bus systems.
The connectors achieve their long term reliability due to the use of MULTILAM technology, a proprietary contact system that uses multiple torsion spring contact elements that allow electrical contact to be made via a large number of contact points. This arrangement substantially reduces contact resistance and ensures strong resistance to shock and vibration.
