Ethernet field wireable connector takes an IP67 washdown
IP67 Bayonet Style RJ45 from Turck is designed to provide protection in washdown applications and areas of high impact. It is also water resistant.
Turck announces an IP 67 Bayonet Style RJ45/Ethernet field wireable connector, an extension of the company’s RJ45 connector line. These connectors are designed to provide protection in washdown applications or in areas of high impact. The bayonet style mating prevents over tightening, which can cause damage to the connector and pins, in addition to under tightening, which can lead to ingression. Furthermore, the bayonet style locking mechanism requires only a quarter turn to attach and lock.
Developed specifically to provide protection against water, the IP 67 Bayonet Style RJ45/Ethernet field wireable connector is water resistant in depths of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. Additionally, the connector features CAT 5e performance, which allows data transmission at speeds of up to 1000 Mbps (1 Gigabit per second) and performance in harsh environments, including applications using toxic chemicals.
The IP 67 Bayonet Style RJ45/Ethernet connector is available in plastic and metal models, providing ideal operation in a wide range of industries including automotive, machine building and food processing. Additionally, the connector works in all Ethernet applications.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
