A new addition to the MFP8 Cat.6A family

(Nuremberg) Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH are presenting their new RJ45 connector MFP8 IE at the sps-ipc-drives fair. The new addition to the MFP8 product family has an innovative screw-type cable gland for cable diameters of up to 10 mm. This and the robust cable clamp make the new connector the ideal solution to be used in the harsh industrial environment. With the new connector, Telegärtner addresses a frequent demand in industrial applications

„The new screw-type cable gland allows the proven connection principle of the MFP8 family to be used with a much greater number of industrial data communication cables," Marcel Leonhard, Product Line Manager DataVoice Copper Solutions at Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH points out. With the new MFP8 IE Cat. 6A plug connector, Telegärtner also extends the extremely successful MFP8 family for the connection of special installation or patch cables with multiple shielding and cable diameters up to ten millimetres.

The screw connection with the robust cable clamp ensures reliable strain relief. The new connector can be assembled in the field as usual without special tools. The proven IPC connection technique for AWG22-27 copper conductors enables fast and easy termination of industrial cables on site. Connections between the switch and a control system, an access point or IP video cameras can be installed conveniently and flexibly for example.

Safety requirements in harsh industrial environments

The hinged parts of the shielded housing are permanently attached to the housing for easy and safe installation. A practical 4-chamber wire management with piercing contacts for solid and stranded conductors acts also as an assembly aid for error-free assembly. 360° shielding ensures secure data transmission even in EMI critical environments. With the new MFP8 IE Cat. 6A , Telegärtner presents the product industrial users have been asking for. Visit Telegärtner at the sps-ipc-drives in Nuremberg: Hall 10.0, Booth 100
