Amphenol Socapex ATEX Rugged Ethernet Connection System

Amphenol Socapex ATEX Rugged Ethernet Connection System is the first Ethernet connectors for applications in zone 2 and Class I Division 2 explosive environments. These rugged connectors were developed in response to the current trend in the ATEX market toward limiting the expensive equipment in zone 1 and installing it in zone 2, where constraints are much less demanding. The Amphenol Socapex ATEX Rugged Ethernet Connection System is an extension of the RJ FIELD and USB FIELD ranges, incorporating their patented and recognized RJStop® connection system. The RJStop provides a rapid conversion of any standard Ethernet cable into a connection with IP68 ingress protection against shocks, dust, and fluids. The metal cases meet the mechanical resistance criteria of EN 60079-15.
