Ethernet crimp cable connectors deliver 10Gbit Ethernet data in space-constrained applications

The new Provertha M12 X-Code 10Gbit Ethernet Crimp connector is now available at Aerco. Designed to deliver fail-safe connection and secure data transmission of up to 10Gbits for Cat6a Ethernet in railway and other mass-transit applications, the M12-X Code Crimp Cable Connector achieves 360 degrees EMI/RFI shielding in the smallest form factor on the market, ideal for restricted assembly conditions. In addition to extreme vibration resistance, the housing design is waterproof to IP67 when screw locked.

The connector series has unique design with a completely shielded full metal housing, reducing crosstalk and signal coupling. Turned and gold-plated crimp contacts maintain secure contact termination of Ethernet signal wires even under extremely harsh high vibration conditions, delivering robust and reliable high-speed data transmission rates to TIA-568 and ISO/IEC-11801 Cat6A specifications. Using the new connectors, complete high-speed data transmission systems delivering 10Gbits can be built in the popular M12 format. When compared to D-coded M12 connectors, this is approximately one hundred times faster. The design of the connectors also features a special crimp sleeve/crimp flange system for reliable torsion proof strain relief. The connector cannot be disassembled (tampered with) once terminated.

Technical specifications for the connectors include shock and vibration qualification to DIN EN 61373 Category 1, Class B. Available in AWG sizes 22-26, they are qualified for up to 250 mating cycles.
