Industrial Bulkhead Coupler
The Industrial Bulkhead Coupler provides back-to-back shielded category 5e outlets in a single Industrial MAX® shell to enable protected plug-to-plug connections. This robust connector is fully protected on both sides to provide a true IP 66/67 connection, surpassing typical designs where only one side is protected. The modular design allows panel feed-thru connections without the need to punch down cables. The industrial Bulkhead Coupler is ideal for use on enclosures with a protected connection on the outside to a device, and standard modular patch cord on the inside to a switch or controller. It may also be used to establish sealed in-line plug-to-plug connections without the need for an enclosure.
The Industrial Bulkhead Coupler is part of the Industrial MAX product line. These products provide a reliable network connection in even the harshest environments — factory floors, hospital wash down rooms, food processing plants, chemical refineries, warehouses and much more. Industrial MAX protects connections from water, dust, moisture, vibration, temperature extremes, chemicals and electromagnetic interference (EMI).
- Category 5e compatible
- Interface mates with industrial or standard RJ-45 plugs for UTP or shielded applications
- Shielded design for applications with high levels of EMI/RFI
- Bayonet-style mating eliminates over- and under-tightening to ensure proper plug depth and sealing
- The bulkhead coupler creates a panel feed-thru point which uses modular connections, eliminating the need to punch down for termination
- By fully enclosing the coupler, greater strength and stability is provided as compared with partially enclosed coupler designs
The coupler's outer housing is made of durable, chemical resistant, industrial-grade thermoplastic and features Siemon's patent-pending bayonet-style mating design. The Industrial MAX Connector has been recognized by the Open DeviceNet Vendor Association (ODVA), TIA/EIA TR 42.9 and IEC PAS 61076-3-111 and IEC 61076-3-106 (draft). It is fully compatible with Industrial MAX® plugs, patch cords, dust caps, and accessories.
