A new IP67-Rated Metal-Shell ODVA-Compliant connector allows industrial Ethernet to be applied in rugged environments. The Zamak zinc-alloy metal shell gives additional mechanical strength, while the IP67 sealing protects the interface from liquids, gases, and other contaminants. The connectors meet Category 5e performance requirements. The 8-position connectors are available in plugs or receptacles, either shielded or unshielded, with end caps to protect unmated connectors. The quick-turn bayonet coupling and positive locking ring provide reliable connections.
