Rugged, reliable connectors at electronica 2018

Exhibiting at electronica, the trade fair and conference for electronics, will be Omnetics Connector Corporation. The event will take place in Munich, Germany from 13th to 16th November. It will be a good opportunity for Omnetics’ executives to meet existing and prospective customers alike at the company’s booth (Hall B3, Stand 110).

A highlight this year will be the company’s new Micro 360 Cat6a connectors. These connectors provide the reliability and ruggedness expected from Omnetics, while passing the signal requirements of Cat 6a. Using both simulation and measurement, Omnetics optimised the performance for Cat6a by implementing a novel five pin grounding strategy to these Micro 360 Cat6a connectors. This results in excellent crosstalk performance and it yields maximum data transmission, meeting the requirements of Cat6a per TIA-568-C.2.

In addition, Omnetics will feature its latching connectors at electronica. Latching connectors are ideal in applications where reliability and durability are a top priority. An easy-to-use latch system allows for mating and de-mating without tools, providing a secure and reliable connection at all times.

Another highlight will be the COBRA connector, a body-worn solution for dismounted soldiers and civil law enforcement. The COBRA connector is used for power and signal routing of electronics integrated into clothing; a key attribute of the design is the connector’s ability to slide through standard MOLLE straps on a vest. The COBRA interconnect system can be attached to standard MOLLE straps or integrated directly to the fabric. Various pin counts can be realised, handling up to five amps. Standard protocols can be supported from Ethernet, USB and HDMI.
