3M introduces industrial RJ45 modular plug
July 16, 2012 - 3M claims its new modular plug for industrial ethernet applications can help system designers reduce assembly time and minimize connector replacement costs, while providing highly reliable connections. The 3M industrial RJ45 modular plug is based on the RJ45 registered jack standard for eight-conductor modular connectors (also known as 8P8C). Applications for the plug include industrial machinery, programmable logic controllers (PLC), servo motor drivers, remote I/Os, human machine interfaces (HMI), industrial computing, industrial robots and inspection cameras.
