A new Cat. 6 Ethernet module is available for the HARTING Han-Modular series that satisfies the demands for transmission rates up to 10 Gbit/s. The Han-Modular open connector system allows users to put their connector together to suit specific needs. More than 40 different modules are available for electric, optical and pneumatic transmission. The new module offers a very high level of mechanical stability. It comes 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. These are a field-installable version with RJ Industrial and a module that is capable of accommodating corresponding patch cables from the company. Fully plug compatible with previous RJ45 module, the new offering comes complete 360° shielded RJ45 metal coupler.
