L-com Global Connectivity, a manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, recently announced that it has launched a new series of IP67-rated, RJ45 bulkhead couplers for use in industrial enclosure and panel mount applications.
The WPBHC-series RJ45 bulkhead couplers are available in both Category 5e and Category 6 versions and are shielded for maximum EMI/RFI protection. These couplers do not require special mating assemblies and are designed to be capped when not in use. Each coupler includes a dust cap that is tethered by a lanyard.
A coupling nut and O-ring, along with a simple cut-out design, allow for mounting without additional hardware or tooling. The couplers utilize standard RJ45 jacks on both sides and the inner side features a low profile protrusion allowing for maximum space within a panel or enclosure.
“Our new IP67 RJ45 bulkhead couplers offer maximum protection for Ethernet connectivity applications in industrial environments. Their design allows for fast assembly to a panel or box with no special tools required,” said Dustin Guttadauro, Product Manager.
