Molex Brad Micro-Change® M12 CAT6A Connector System

Molex Brad Micro-Change® M12 CAT6A Connector System

Molex Brad Micro-Change® M12 CAT6A Connector System is an IP67 sealed connection system capable of achieving data transmission rates up to 10Gbps Ethernet in harsh environments. The system features leading edge X-code technology that shields both mating connectors to ensure superior signal integrity and enable higher data rate capability compared to standard CAT5 & CAT5e connections. The rugged M12 CAT6A system is ideal for vision systems and other high-speed data transfer applications that operate in harsh environments and may be subject to vibration. Sealed CAT6A RJ45 connectors that are twice the size of the M12 form factor can be replaced by the Micro-Change® CAT6A system, enabling the use of smaller enclosures.

Features and Benefits

Robust, compact M12 CAT6A  X-Code connector design

Transmission performance meets TIA-568 and ISO/IEC 11801 Cat6A specification up to 500Mhz for 10 Gbps Ethernet

Complete 360° shielded design: 4 twisted-cable pairs  individually shielded and protected with a braided metal shield

When mated the 2 shielding crosses of the connector and receptacle overlap to achieve optimal signal performance without system noise interference.

Achieves superior signal-integrity values when compared to a Cat6 system

Male connector features X-code keying alignment

Allows for blind-mating

Recessed male  pins within diecast-metal x-code shield

Anti-scoop proof design: prevents damage to pins during mating

External and internal o-ring seal

Complete sealing to IP67 standard

Factory overmolded and tested cable assemblies in AWG26 wire gauge

Uncompromised reliability

Receptacle PCB stand-offs

Securely attaches to PCB; prevents damaging of PCB and contacts; prevents connector rotation

Nickel-plated brass housings and coupling nuts

Corrosion resistant hardware assures compatibility with harsh demanding environments 

System mates using a standard M12 threaded coupling nut

Guarantees IP67 protection from dust and water

Accepted standard in the market and conforms to IEC 61076-2-10

Receptacles can be mounted using through-hole reflow (THR) technology

Allows for an automated assembly process
