The Siemon Company Announces New Industrial Cabling Connectivity

New Industrial MAX® industrial plug and outlet guarantee superior category 5e performance even in the harshest environmental conditions.

Watertown, CT — The Siemon Company, a world leader in structured cabling and connectivity, today announced the release of a new line of connectivity products, the Industrial MAX® industrial plug and outlet. These new cabling components are designed specifically for industrial applications where harsh environmental conditions exist such as vibration, moisture, temperature extremes, and electromagnetic interference. The Industrial MAX® plug and outlet deliver a robust category 5e Ethernet solution for the factory floor and other facilities such as chemical refineries, food processing plants, hospitals, marine sites, mines, and warehouses.

The Siemon Company's new Industrial MAX® industrial outlet and plug feature an innovative protective housing design with a patent-pending bayonet-style coupling nut. With a quarter-turn of the coupling nut, the plug and outlet become fully engaged and sealed against liquids and other environmental contaminants. The durable thermoplastic housing is resistant to chemicals and has a higher operating temperature than traditional connectors. Both the plug and outlet have an International Protection (IP) 67 rating.

John Wages, Associate Product Manager for The Siemon Company states, "We are very excited to offer this new connector. With our new Industrial MAX® plug and outlet, our customers can now extend their high-performance Ethernet applications onto the manufacturing floor or into areas where traditional connectivity is vulnerable to environmental extremes."

The Siemon Company is actively working within standards organizations to have the Industrial MAX® interface accepted as the preferred interface for industrial environments.

The Industrial MAX® plug and outlet are available in UTP as well as ScTP versions. The Industrial MAX® plugs can be terminated in the field for custom length configurations, and factory terminated and tested cable assemblies are available for warranteed installations.
