Amphenol Alden PL-1300EN-V Pulse-Lok® Ethernet Connectors

Amphenol Alden PL-1300EN-V Pulse-Lok® Industrial Ethernet Connectors provide an audible, tactile, and visual mating confirmation with mechanical cable strain relief plug protection. These RJ45 ethernet connectors feature a Pulse-Lok® mating action and positive mating feedback to confirm continuity. The IP67 rated PL-1300EN-V connectors are engineered for harsh environments. These connectors accept a variety of standard RJ-45 components and are compatible with different standard cable types. The PL-1300EN-V connectors offer optional Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI)/ Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) shielding and operate within a temperature range of -20°C to +105°C.
