ix Industrial™ Series, Robust, Compact and High-Speed I/O Connectors


HIROSE has developed the robust ix Industrial™ series of connectors for space-constrained industrial applications requiring high-speed signal transmission up to 10Gbps.

The connector series reduces installation space by up to 75% compared to RJ45 solutions. Supporting CAT5e (1Gbps) and CAT6A (10Gbps) cabling, the ix Industrial™ Series I/O connector features an optimized EMI/ESD shielding design for safe and secure data transmission up to 10Gbps.

ix Industrial™ is compliant with IEC/ PAS 61076-3-124. The range feature receptacles and plugs with two keying codes for Ethernet and non-Ethernet applications.

There are two receptacle types within the range. The upright right angle type can be mounted in parallel with a pitch distance of only 10mm to save space. The vertical type allows the mating plug to be mated from the top giving design flexibility.

The receptacle shell is mounted on the board via through-hole solder legs to enhance the retention to the board and to resist the wrenching of the cable assembly, protecting the surface-mount contacts.

The plugs are available in IDC or solder type. The wire-termination unit and cable clamp are integrated into a single plug shell, which prevents the connecting part of the cable assembly from being affected by the load on the cable.
