RJ45 connectors for fire-resistant data cables in railway applications!

The Harting RJ Industrial® EtherRail® RJ45 connector is the first RJ45 connector on the market specifically designed for the field assembly of fire-resistant data cables in rail applications.

The connector is designed for connecting wires with an external diameter of up to 2 mm and cables with diameters up to 9 mm, and is therefore ideally suited to the connection of 4-core Ha-VIS EtherRail® cable in screened star quad configurations.

The 4-pole RJ45 connector is equipped with insulation displacement technology, and can be used with EtherRail® 4 x AWG22/7 cable for laying in and on rail vehicles and buses, as well as the ultra-flexible 4 x AWG22/19 cable which is mainly used as a linking connection between vehicles while also finding use for installations within rail vehicles and buses.

The Ha-VIS EtherRail® cables fulfil the fire-protection regulations for rail vehicles and buses, and are suitable for applications involving extreme temperature requirements from  -40°C to +85°C.

The design and construction of the cables, including the materials used and the processing technology (including irradiation crosslinking) meet the requirements of the EN 45545 European standard for rail applications and also pass the comprehensive fire tests in accordance with DIN5510, UL1685, as well as many other national and international requirements.

The robust star quad design guarantees reliable data transfer up to 100 MBit/s. In connection with the new Harting RJ Industrial® EtherRail® RJ45 connector, it is now possible to implement highly robust RJ45 data cabling in trains, trams and buses.
