MilesTek has released a new series of shielded industrial Ethernet patch cords with low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) jackets to address demanding military and industrial Ethernet connectivity applications.
These robust LSZH Category 5e-rated assemblies can be used in multiple applications, including mobile and fixed military communications networks, automation and manufacturing, oil and gas, or in any application where harsh environments exist.
Featuring all-metal-body RJ45 connectors and aluminized polyester shielded cable with drain wire, these assemblies are designed to protect from EMI/RFI while maintaining high performance data transmission characteristics. Additionally, LSZH jackets protect valuable communications equipment and lives in the event of a fire.
“These rugged, shielded Ethernet cable assemblies were developed to address harsh military and industrial applications in the field. The low-smoke zero-halogen jackets were developed for use in confined areas such as communications rooms, tanks, ships, aircraft or in any confined mobile or fixed network,” said Mark Hearn, Product Manager.
