New Industrial Ethernet RJ45 metal housing with IP69K protection

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Designed for the toughest industrial applications, Yamaichi’s RJ45 Y-Con series is a flexible, modular and expandable product line. Among other things, it meets the requirements of protection classes IP20, IP67, IP68 and IP69K.

Within the product line, the Y-Con Cover-40, which has been established for years, has now been replaced by a new metal housing, namely the Y-Con Cover-40 PP with push-pull locking. This facilitates and simplifies handling, with the housing locking and unlocking automatically during the plugging and unplugging process.

The new housing also meets the protection classes IP67/ IP68/ IP69K and is therefore also suitable for the harshest industrial environments. It is characterized by high robustness, temperature resistance and durability and is largely protected against vibration. Reliable data and optional power transmission is thus reliably guaranteed.

Of course, the new housing is backwards compatible with the components used previously. In this way, IP67/ IP68/ IP69K components that are already in use can be connected to the new connector system.

The metal housing can be installed in the usual easy self-assembly with Y-Con cable connectors and cables. The reduction in individual parts has also reduced the complexity and error rate during assembly for the customer.

In addition, the new version offers an enlarged sealing surface and improved EMC protection. In addition, the new cover allows the processing of different cable diameters from 6.1 mm to a maximum of 7.1 mm.

Power supply and data transmission

The Y-Con RJ45 is the only industrial-grade connector system for Industrial Ethernet, Profinet and fieldbuses that optionally has two additional, fully integrated contacts for the power supply based on the RJ45 specification. Up to 3.1A can be reliably transmitted via this.

Cable assemblies

Industrial Ethernet connects sensors, actuators and encoders via Y-Con RJ45 – Y-Circ M12 connection cables. M12 push-pull version available.
