Multi-Contact has upgraded its CombiTac modular connector system with a 10-Gbit module for Ethernet communication. The module complies with all CAT6A requirements. Like most products from the Multi-Contact selection, the connector is designed for 100,000 connection cycles. The 10-Gbit module was developed for the harsh industrial environment and boasts an IEC 60512-6-4 rating for vibration resistance.
The new 10-Gbit module is ideal for industrial Ethernet applications in the manufacturing industry, where large quantities of data must be transferred. The module can also be used in railway applications, as it fulfills the requirements of the EN 45545-1 rail standard.
