Siemon Ruggedized Infrastructure Solutions protect critical network connections from dust, moisture, industrial cleaning chemicals and vibration. Ruggedized infrastructure solutions are ideal for protecting valuable connections in laboratories, hospitals, food processing plants and other harsh environments.

Ruggedized Copper Connectivity


Siemon Ruggedized Copper Connectivity includes Category 5e, Category 6 UTP and Category 6A outlets, plugs and patch cords that ensure the protection of valuable connections and allows LANs to reliably extend into harsh environments without compromising on bandwidth and performance.

  • Patented Ruggedized housing made of chemical-resistant thermoplastic features an innovative quarter-turn bayonet-style mating that ensures an IP66/IP67-rated seal
  • Plugs can be terminated in the field, allowing custom lengths to be assembled quickly on site
  • Plug housing and dust caps feature ribs to provide additional gripping for mating and unmating

Ruggedized LC Fiber Connectivity


Ideal for ensuring reliability and performance in critical applications, Siemon Ruggedized LC Fiber solution provides a robust fiber connection. Ruggedized fiber connectivity is ideal for protecting fiber for installations requiring extended distances, in close proximity to heavy sources of EMI, or where fiber active equipment is used.

  • Available with duplex multimode and singlemode LC fiber connectors and features patented Ruggedized housing with an innovative quarter-turn bayonet-style mating that ensures an IP66/IP67-rated seal
  • Features a specialized fiber bend relief boot and heavy-duty strain relief crimp components that significantly improves strain relief by more than 50% over standard fiber solutions
