Siemon Launches RJ45 Ruggedized Cable Assemblies- Straight, Right and Left Angled

May 19, 2016, Watertown, CT - Siemon Interconnect Solutions, a business unit of Siemon that provides custom network infrastructure solutions to OEMs, value-added resellers and system integrators, is pleased to announce straight, right and left angled RJ45 Ruggedized cable assemblies. Siemon Ruggedized straight cable assemblies are designed for high temperature applications and rapid changes of temperature. Siemon Ruggedized right and left angle assemblies are designed for low profile applications where space is a premium.

Our thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) jacket with straight and angled RJ45 connectors and polyurethane (PUR) jacket with straight RJ45 connectors have been successfully tested to a 75°C (167°F) operating temperature, as Industrial Ethernet network equipment often functions at this elevated temperature. Standard commercial-grade RJ45 patch cords operate at a maximum of 60°C (140°F). These robust cable assemblies also protect data from industrial elements like noise, chemicals and mechanical extremes. TPE jacketed assemblies are highly flexible and rated for over one million flex cycles, making them an ideal choice for robotics and other applications requiring high levels of mechanical stress.

TPE jacket cable assemblies allow for operating temperatures of 75°C (167°F). Assemblies are 100% factory tested for infield reliability. Removable clips allow color coding even when cords are connected.

Industrial control panels and enclosures are typically shallow, leaving little available space for equipment and proper bend radius required for reliable performance of network cables. Siemon right and left angle RJ45 Ruggedized cable assemblies provide machine builders and integrators more flexibility when designing their systems. The ultra slim boot design supports high-density applications and an integral latch guard provides an anti-snag feature when pulling through pathways or cable bundles.

Angled plugs have a depth of only 23mm (0.9 in); excellent for applications with tight space restricitons. Color coded clips can be used with angled assemblies, as shown in picture on right.

Siemon RJ45 category 5e straight, right and left angled cable assemblies are specifically designed to perform above the current ISO/IEC, TIA and ODVA Ethernet standards and to provide a highly reliable network connection in harsh environments.
