“The Weidmüller RJ45 connection components for PCBs meet the highest demands and comprise RJ45 PCB sockets with or without electronic components and integrated PCB.”
Trends such as the transition from fieldbus to Industrial Ethernet technologies have created the need for an increasing variety of new RJ45 PCB socket models in order to produce more customised housing designs. The constantly increasing volume of data transmissions in Industrial Ethernet applications also calls for different RJ45 PCB socket versions. The new RJ45 PCB sockets from Weidmüller offer an impressive solution that ensures efficient device connection for Industrial Ethernet interfaces. All Weidmüller RJ45 connection components for PCBs meet the highest demands and perform reliably even in harsh conditions.
The RJ45 product range from Weidmüller includes standing and flat designs, versions with top and bottom latching hooks to keep device dimensions to a minimum, and versions for SMD or THR soldering methods. Each PCB socket guarantees the secure transmission of high data rates. The RJ45 PCB sockets are available either with or without electronic components. An RJ45 socket with electronic components would have an integrated PCB, for POE, POE+, 100 Mbit/s, 1 gigabit and 10 gigabit for example. The PCBs can also be fitted out based on the customer’s specific requirements.
Harsh industrial environments and increasing data rates mean that high-quality individual components are crucial. Conventional interface solutions are often no longer sufficient in this regard, as data losses may occur due to the absence of shielding, or it may not be possible to achieve the required speeds due to insufficient transmission characteristics. The fully shielded design of the Weidmüller RJ45 sockets ensure secure data transmission at all times, with high levels of electromagnetic compatibility. As a result, the RJ45 sockets can also be used in sensitive or electromagnetically charged areas. The RJ45 PCB sockets also have a future-proof design, illustrated by the fact that the RJ45 components are classified as Cat-5 or Cat-6 (gigabit applications).
The RJ45 PCB sockets in the Weidmüller range have variable outlet directions, meaning that the 90°/180° versions allow for optimal adaptation to an extremely wide range of housing designs. Whether customers are looking to use SMD or THR technology, Weidmüller has the right product for either assembly method. The contacts are precisely gold-plated with a standard layer thickness of 30 µ-inch flash gold.
The integrated electronics in the RJ45 PCB sockets provide a range of benefits, helping to save space and reduce assembly costs. The sockets also offer increased reliability as the circuitry is located inside the connector and the connector is fully shielded. The board integrated into the connector socket contains electronic components such as coils, resistors and capacitors, and offers the circuit options 10/100/1000 base-T, 1 gigabit and 10 gigabit, PoE and PoE+.
Weidmüller offers a 72-hour sample service for its RJ45 PCB sockets.Customers can access 3D data online at any time from the Weidmüller homepage. The large product range provides high levels of flexibility for all users, and customer-specific solutions are also possible as required. For automatic assembly machines, Weidmüller provides component packaging with the following quantities: from 1 tray (from 60 pieces) or belt (from 100 pieces).
