The Hirose ix Industrial series gives a reduced size of 75% compared to conventional RJ-45 modular solutions. This size reduction provides for reduced installation space. Parallel-mounting at P=10mm is possible with this solution.
The connector locks by inserting the plug into the receptacle. An audible click ensures locking. The lock can be released by pushing a button on the plug producing a smooth removal.
The PCB-mounted receptacle shell is created to reduce the influence of wrenching force from the plug on the mated surface. Furthermore, the PCB-mounted shape is created to protect the contacts. Stainless steel material is employed for metal parts to improve the mechanical strength.
Optimised shielding design guarantees high EMC resistance to secure safe data transmission. The device provides Cat.5e (1Gbps) and Cat.6A (10Gbps) high-speed Ethernet performance. PIP (Pin-In-Paste) mounting is also possible.
