Glen Rock, PA, [September 29, 2020] Stewart Connector, a Bel group company, (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and world-class manufacturer of high-speed connectors used in data communication applications adds M12 X-Code to RJ45 cable assemblies to their offering of M12 harsh environment solutions. M12 X- Code cable assemblies are the ideal solution for Ethernet connectivity up to 10 Gbps in factory and industrial applications.

Stewart’s M12 X-Code to RJ45 cable assemblies feature an IP67 rated male M12 X-Code plug on one end with an IP20 rated RJ45 plug on the other. The RJ45 end of these assemblies is over-molded, providing additional robust strain relief for applications in rugged environments. Along with Stewart Connector’s existing M12 X-Code to X-Code cable assemblies, the new M12 X-Code to RJ45 assemblies are terminated to a shielded cable with a foil shield and a braid to protect against high-frequency noise commonly found on factory floors. The cable includes a TPE cable jacket which is resistant to oil, weld splatter, and sunlight making these assemblies suitable for the harshest environments while providing reliable connections that support Modbus, Ethernet, PROFINET, and EtherCAT communication protocols.

Stewart Connector’s M12 X-Code to RJ45 Cable Assemblies are in stock with Digi-Key, Farnell, Newark, and Mouser.
