Overmoulded RJ45 connector with metal housing and kink protection

Yamaichi Electronics Deutschland : 10 October, 2013  (New Product)
The new Y-ConCover-40-O (O stands for Overmould) is an RJ45 hybrid connector consisting of a metal protective housing with additional overmoulding that achieves outstanding sealing characteristics. It is based on the Yamaichi Electronics "Hermetic Sealed" technology, which was developed a few years ago for extremely reliable photovoltaic connection systems. The product lifetime of these products is designed to be 25 years.
Overmoulded RJ45 connector with metal housing and kink protection
The Y-ConCover-40-O can thus be used in any RJ45 area with strict requirements for IP sealing (IP67/IP68/IP69K), for example in automation, medical technology, the construction industry or in other areas with harsh environmental conditions.
With its unique kink protection, IP protection is maintained even when the cable is bent at a 180 degree angle. This is possible due to a special connection method used between the cable, metal parts and the overmoulding. The metal housing also allows the Y-ConCover-40-O to withstand the extreme mechanical stresses that frequently occur in industrial applications. It is suitable for Industrial Ethernet and other Fieldbus standards.
The robust metal connector is available in an EMC-protected variant or without EMC protection. The variant with EMC protection can withstand voltage spikes up to 10kV with no influence on the data signal protocol used.
The material used has outstanding temperature ageing resistance in the overmoulded area, and can therefore be used over a wide range of temperatures. Its very good resistance against environmental influences, such as coolants and lubricants, solvents, UV and ozone, guarantees a long service life.
Like the standard product Y-ConCover-40 without overmoulding, the Y-ConCover-40-O is available with a different number of signal contacts, and optionally with additional power contacts. The power contacts integrated into the RJ45 permit the simultaneous current transmission of 2.1A at 70C over the same cable.
