A new Cat. 6 Ethernet module is available for the Harting Han-Modular series that satisfies the demands for ever higher transmission rates. The previous RJ45 Ethernet module has now been enhanced to allow it to transmit data rates up to 10 Gbit/s. A further feature is a very high level of mechanical stability, which is suitable for applications with high mechanical demands.
The module is executed as a gender changer on the socket side so that inserting a commercially available RJ45 patch cable is all that is needed to make the connection. Two Cat. 6 solutions are available on the male connector: A field-installable version with RJ Industrial and a module that is capable of accommodating corresponding Harting patch cables.
