The installation of high specification cabling in industrial environments is often challenging because of moisture, vibration, high temperatures and corrosive substances.

Siemon's new Industrial MAX 6 outlet and patch cords have been specifically designed to enable the reliable performance of category 6 network cabling solutions under industrial conditions.

The Industrial MAX 6 outlet and patch cords are ideal for protecting network connections in laboratories, hospitals, food processing plants and other harsh environments, while still providing category 6/class E performance for Ethernet and other industrial and IP-based applications.

Robert C. Carlson, Siemon VP of Global Marketing said: "We wanted to provide a seamless category 6 cabling solution from the office to the factory floor and beyond. We have achieved this by expanding our category 6 product range to offer a solution that works effectively in challenging environments."

The Industrial MAX 6 module and patch cord feature Siemon's high performance category 6 UTP RJ-45 connectors encased in a protective outer housing. The housing, made of heat-resistant thermoplastic, features a bayonet style mating design that easily and securely latches, offering a superior protective seal against solid and liquid contaminants.

Siemon's Industrial MAX is the first RJ-45 connector interface to become standardized by ISO/IEC and both the outlet and the patch cord are IP67-rated.
