The question is to find a compact, shielded and robust I/O connector for high-speed transmissions (up to 10 Gbps) with two different keying variations and solder or IDC cable plugs - the answer is HIROSE’s ix Industrial™ series!
HIROSE’s ix Industrial™ series covers a huge range of different interests:
Its compact design offers a reduced size of 75% compared to conventional RJ45 modular solutions. Available with two keying codes, the ix series I/O connector is compliant with IEC/PAS 61076-3-124:
- Type A – bottom left – for Ethernet applications
- Type B – top left – for non-Ethernet applications
Furthermore, the compact design allows a parallel 10mm pitch mounting. This feature makes the series perfect for daisy-chaining in compact units, too. Featuring a robust and reliable design, the snap-in I/O connector has a positive metal lock that provides a clear tactile click and ensures complete, secure mating. It also offers strong resistance to vibration and shock as well as up to 5.000 mating cycles.
Optimized shielding design guarantees high EMC resistance to secure data transmission. Cable plugs can be ordered in solder or IDC version for a wide cable size from 22 to 28 AWG. To reduce assembly time a user-friendly IDC handtool is available. The ix series I/O connector has a rated current of 0.5A (all pins), 1A (any 2 pins), 2A (pin No.1 and No.8 only). With an operating temperature range of -40 to +80°C, the ix series connector has rated voltage of 30V AC.
