Device interfaces and system cables must be smaller, more powerful and yet more robust. The new HARTING ix Industrial® connector is our clear commitment to miniaturisation. It sets a new standard for robustness and performance in Ethernet interfaces. This new top performer not only takes up 70 % less space compared to RJ45, but is also much more robust. And with up to 5000 mating cycles and Cat. 6A performance for 1/10 Gbit/s Ethernet, it establishes a benchmark for modularisation and digitisation. Standardised to IEC/PAS 61076-3-124, the HARTING ix Industrial® is a robust, miniature Ethernet interface that has potential to replace the conventional RJ45 connection.
