MFP8: For new freedom in structured cabling

Here’s the situation: An existing network needs extending. A cable link needs to be repaired or replaced. A peripheral device needs to be connected quickly. Your customer expects a fast and reliable solution but you don’t have a cable assembly ready at hand. Sound familiar?
Now you can keep cool when faced with such demands – with the field assembly MFP8 RJ45 plug series developed by Telegärtner.

 

Less fuss. More flexibility.

The MFP8 plug series enables time-saving and efficient onsite assembly for all networks, from Voice right through to 40 Gigabit Ethernet. It can be assembled on all standard types of cable in just 60 seconds – and no special tools are required.
Whether in the office, data centers, in industry or in home networks – the MFP8 plug series offers unprecedented flexibility and saves time and money on installation, repairs and maintenance.

MFP8 IE Cat.6A

The Industrial Ethernet variant in the MFP8 family is characterized by two major innovations. In addition to the completely redesigned, elegant housing in full metal design, the MFP8 IE is characterized in particular by an innovative cable gland that allows cable diameters of up to 10 mm to pass through. The parts of the shield housing that can be folded for assembly are attached to the connector housing so that they cannot be lost and enable quick and easy assembly on industrial cables on site. All of this makes the MFP8 IE the ideal solution for installing and repairing modern industrial networks. MFP8, the connector for modern industrial installations for today and tomorrow.

Simpler all over: MFP8 applications

The new field assembly MFP8 is the number one choice whenever efficient and reliable connections are needed without major expense or effort, whether for classic cabling systems in office buildings, data centers, in industry or for home cabling systems. Needless to say, it also supports High Power over Ethernet plus (PoE+).

 

With the MFP8 plug series, installers and network professionals now have access to RJ45 plugs which will enable them to respond with speed and flexibility, even at short notice, to any requirement, be it cabling for workstations,connections for equipment or backbone extensions.
Connections can be made with all standard cable types, even with transferrates of 40 Gigabit Ethernet/s (40GBase-T), without requiring hours of preparation and the need for special tools. It is particularly cost-effective for connections in data centers where every centimeter counts. Space problems due to surplus cable are consigned to history books. Thanks to its compact design and suitability for multiport applications, the MFP8 can also be used where space is at an absolute premium.

 

Whether used in industrial control cabinets or distribution boxes in production, the MFP8 plug series can also be relied upon in industry. 360° shielding and full metal housing guarantee secure and reliable data transmission, including 40 Gigabit Ethernet/s and even with outside electrical interference. And the use of full range of cable types with solid or stranded conductors make it an universal product fit for all purposes, whether for PROFINET, EtherCAT, Ether-Net/IP or CC-Link.

 

Outlets and patch cords are not desirable in many applications for security or aesthetic reasons, although a wireless connection is not practical either. The MFP8 and MFP8-SL can connect IP cameras, security devices, Wi-Fi access points and distributed antenna systems to the installation cable elegantly and protect them against manipulation.

 

Fitting the MFP8 Cat.6A

The MFP8 Cat.6A consists of just two parts which can be assembled quickly and securely in three simple steps.

 

Step 1: Connect cable

 

Remove cable jacket, move cable shielding backwards and prepare wires by untwisting pairs and inserting them in the wire manager. The integrated assembling aid protects the board and facilitates this process. The print is highly visible and is available in colour code T568A, T568B or PROFINET. Press wire manager together with a plier and cut off excess wires.

 

Step 2: Insert in plug housing

 

Remove assembling aid and insert board with wires connected in plug housing. The wire manager is designed so that it can only be inserted in the housing the right way up.

 

Step 3: Close plug

 

The cable relief is hinged to ensure 360° shielding and effective strain relief on the cable. The snap-in mechanism can be adjusted to tailor the amount of grip to the cable diameter in any given case. And the cap protects the plug contacts from dust and dirt.
