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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
