Amphenol Commercial ix Industrial IP20 Connectors

February 25, 2021

Amphenol Commercial ix Industrial IP20 Connectors enable Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity for Ethernet and other industrial protocols through all levels of an operation. Amphenol Commercial ix Industrial IP20 Connectors are 10mm-pitch connectors featuring two-point metal latches. The series is just 25% of the size of an RJ45 connector, allowing greater port density and mating security. These connectors are Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable and provide data performance to Cat6A level (10GBASE-T). The series also features 360° shielding through the mated pair for superior electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection.
