The Hirose Rugged IX Industrial I/O Connector Offers Transmission Speeds Up to 10Gbps for Next-Generation Industrial Modules Providing PCB Space Savings Up to 75% Compared to RJ45 Solutions
Hirose, a leader in the development of innovative connector solutions has developed a rugged I/O connector that combines a small robust design with high-speed data transmission capabilities that enables industrial equipment advancements in smart manufacturing. The IX Series connector reduces installation space by up to 75% compared to RJ45 solutions, and up to 28% compared to competing snap-in I/O connectors. Supporting CAT5e and CAT6a (10G) cabling, the IX Series I/O connector features an optimized EMI/ESD shielding design for safe and secure data transmission up to 10Gbps.
Available with two keying codes for Ethernet and non-Ethernet applications, the IX Series I/O connector is compliant with IEC PAS 61076-3-124. The IX Series can be used as a next generation standard connector in equipment such as factory automation controllers, industrial robotics, programmable logic controllers, security systems, servo amps, servers, robotics and more. Offered in upright right angle and horizontal right angle versions, the IX Series I/O has maximum dimensions of 22.9 x 8.4 x 14.3mm. The upright right angle connector receptacles can be mounted in parallel with a pitch distance of only 10mm. The narrow width of the receptacle is particularly beneficial when multiple connectors are positioned on a single PCB sideby- side. Featuring a rugged and reliable design, the snap-in I/O connector has a positive metal lock with a preload spring mechanism that provides a clear tactile click and ensures complete, secure mating. The preloaded springs are designed to prevent unintended cable removal, and to extend the operating life to more than 5000 mating/unmating cycles.
Ideal solution for any application that requires long reach, high speed and limited wiring space including factory automation controllers, industrial robotics, programmable logic controllers, security systems, servo amps, servers, robotics and more.
