Industrial-rated Gigabit single-port RJ45 connector

May 04, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Withstanding up to 2,500 mating cycles, exceeding the highest requirements for durability and mechanical performance and constructed for automated reflow-solder assembly, Molex’ MXMag Gigabit Single-Port RJ45 connector joins its range of magnetic jacks.

The integrated magnetic jack provides OEMs with a high-speed assembly solution without compromising the robust and reliable through-hole PCB connection. Historically, Molex says, RJ45 connectors with integrated magnetics are hand placed and wave soldered to ensure that the through-hole PCB connection is robust and reliable. The company ads that the MXMag Gigabit Single-Port RJ45 connector is designed specifically for automated reflow-solder assembly processes, providing an alternative custom magnetic RJ45 jack solution for OEMs looking to lower component placement costs without the need for an expensive PCB redesign.”


Capable of 10/100/1000Mbit transmission speeds, the magnetic jack is available with varied pin assignments, circuits, LEDs and EMI shield options to meet requirements for the majority of right-angle custom magnetics. Suitable for both commercial (0 to +70˚C) and industrial (-40 to +85˚C) operating temperatures, applications can be varied, from set-top boxes (STBs) and point-of-sale (PoS) terminals to security cameras and vision equipment. Typical industry applications cover the industrial, infrastructure, commercial, and telecoms and networking sectors.
