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.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
