Industrial ethernet connection system
Rather than being soldered to the PC board, the X|Synergy connection system utilizes edge-connector technology. The edge-connector allows the jack to become part of the installation process, while providing self-alignment and flexibility. There are jack modules to support both gigabit Ethernet and 10Gbit Ethernet applications. The jack modules simply plug into the edge-connector, which resides on the PCB and is shrouded by a metal shield for enhanced EMI protection.
This approach ensures signal integrity is maintained, as proper alignment is inherently guaranteed. With a variety of bulkheads available in both plastic and metal forms, the X|Synergy connection system is designed to provide years of secure reliable high-speed service.
