Molex Inc . has added two new cordset and receptacle versions to its RJ-45 product lines. These RJ-45 EtherNet/IP cordsets and receptacles reportedly complement the firm's existing product line by offering users PCB and IDT receptacle versions, as well as over-molded single- and double-ended, bayonet-style cordsets.

The company says its new cordsets and receptacles are ideal for EtherNet/IP applications in the food and beverage, automotive, chemical, water and wastewater, and transportation industries.

To ensure optimum performance and decrease chances of failure, even in harsh environments, these RJ-45 cordsets and receptacles are designed with one sealing surface. Compared to standard field-wireable cordsets, Molex adds its overmolded cordsets enable quicker installation. The bayonet-style latch receptacle allows for fast and easy connection, and guarantees proper depth when mating.

"These additions to the RJ-45 product family give our customers more cordset and receptacle options to choose from when trying to meet their EtherNet/IP needs," says Rob Sanville, Molex's industrial division product manager. Customers can vary cable length to fit the application and can select from IDT and PCB receptacle versions, adds Sanville.

The cordsets and receptacles have IP 67 and NEMA 6P ratings to prevent water and dust particles from affecting functional integrity. They're also are category 5e specified, allowing for high data transmission speeds. They also meet the EtherNet/IP specifications of the Open DeviceNet Vendors Association and ControlNet International organization.
