ix Industrial™
A miniaturized new standard for Industrial Ethernet

In response to the challenging and increased demand for global digitalization technology, HIROSE and HARTING have jointly standardized a new miniaturized Ethernet mating interface in compliance with IEC/PAS 61076-3-124. The ix Industrial™ socket size is reduced by 70% compared to the existing RJ45 modular connectors, and offers ideal space saving cabling for applications with miniaturized requirements. The mass production is planned to start on April 2017.


· Compact

Reduces installation space by 70% compared to conventional RJ45 modular solutions, enables high design flexibility.

The receptacles enable parallel 11mm pitch mounting for daisy-chaining in compact units.

· Robust

HRS’s unique shell design offers maximum stability on the PCB, increases locking strength and provides durable cable connection of the plug. Supports 5,000 Mating cycles.

· High-speed Data Transmission

Cat.6A high-speed Ethernet for 1/10Gbit/s data transmission.

· High EMC Resistance

Optimized shielding design guarantees high EMC resistance to secure safe data transmission.
