TE Connectivity – Robust Mini I/O connector gives 75% space saving compared to RJ45


Industrial Mini I/O connector: variety of receptacle configurations

The Industrial Mini I/O connector from TE Connectivity (TE) provides increased reliability and vibration resistance while taking up just one quarter of the space that a conventional RJ45 connector occupies.

This means that the Industrial Mini I/O connector is particularly well suited to use in densely populated boards, and those in which space must be used very efficiently.

TE’s Industrial Mini I/O connector also provides valuable improvements in reliability compared to other connector types. Its unique locking system is specified to withstand 100N of pull force, eliminating the risk of accidental unplugging of a network connection due to shock, vibration or pulling on cords.

The innovative piercing termination of the Mini I/O Field Installable version reduces the time usually needed to terminate the wires through soldering. An easy-to-use hand tool makes field assembly possible in almost any environment.

The connector may be mated with receptacles of various configurations, including surface-mount, right-angle, straight and through-hole.
