Amphenol Socapex Launches New Miniature High-Speed Ethernet Connector

Dedicated to C4ISR, battlefield communication, aeronautics and railway applications, the ┬ÁCom-10Gb+ connector combines miniaturization and high-speed capacity with resistance to the harshest environments.

"This new copper-based miniature connector meets current market needs in terms of size and high-speed capacity. It provides our customers with secure, reliable signal transmission, especially for tactical military communications", says Christophe Bernardi, Industry & Networks Business Division manager at Amphenol Socapex.

The new connector meets the requirements for applications in harsh environments with:

  • High-speed capacity of 10 Gb+ and a Category 6A classification that goes beyond the IEEE 802.3an-2006, TIA568C.2 and ISO/IEC11801 standards to meet 10GBase-T requirements
  • Small size thanks to its maximum exterior diameter of 15 mm
  • High levels of resistance to corrosion, impacts and vibrations and an IP68 protection level. The environmental tests are based on the MIL-DTL38999 series III military standard
