ix Industrial™ Specified as a New PROFINET Interface by PROFIBUS User Organization
Hirose ix Industrial connector series has been specified as a new standard interface connector for Ethernet applications by PROFINET (Process Field Network). PROFINET is the leading communications standard based on Industrial Ethernet.
A new Guideline for PROFINET Version 5.0 has been released on the 29th June 2021 for which specifies the ix Industrial™ as a new standard interface connector for Ethernet applications. As a result, the guideline provides PROFINET users with definitive universal regulations for industrial cabling in Industrial equipment, systems, and plants.
This benefits manufacturers of Industrial applications that comply with PROFINET standards to develop smaller yet higher performing devices. The ix Industrial™ series reduces functional space by up to 75% and footprint by two-thirds compared to RJ45solutions. The ix Industrial series is compliant with the standard IEC 61076-3-124. Supporting CAT5e (1Gbps) and CAT6A (10Gbps) cabling, the ix Industrial™ Series I/O connector features an optimized EMI/ESD shielding design for safe and secure data transmission up to 10Gbps.
