Hirose has expanded its rugged ix Industrial connector family to include a vertical receptacle.

The ix80 Series vertical receptacle provides design flexibility for manufacturers of next-generation industrial equipment. Featuring a small robust design for use in most any industrial environment, the ix80 connector is available in two keying variations for Ethernet (A Key) and non-Ethernet (B Key) applications.

With maximum dimensions of 11mm x 7.8mm x 9mm, the ix80 Series vertical receptacle reduces installation space by up to 75 percent compared to RJ45 solutions, and up to 28 percent compared to competing snap-in I/O connectors.

Compliant to IEC PAS 61076-3-124, the ix Industrial Series can be used as a next-generation standard connector in equipment such as:

  • Factory automation controllers

  • Industrial robotics

  • Programmable logic controllers

  • Security systems

  • Servo amps

  • Servers
