Waterproof FireWire IEEE 1394a connector is environmentally sealed to IP68

(PresseBox) (Tuningen, ) FireWire IP68 connector provides a high degree of environmental sealing for FireWire connections using standard IEEE 1394a interfaces with data rates up to 400Mbs.

Dust and waterproof to IP68, the connector system is ideally suited to industrial and hostile environments where a high data rate, combined with a robust and secure connection, is required.

Originally designed for high speed data transfer in consumer multimedia equipment, FireWire has now transferred from the home into industrial environments where hazards of water and dust are present. This connector system is intended to address this issue.

Both the 4 and 6 pole interfaces are available for cable and panel mounting. The cable connectors are ‘over-moulded’ directly on the cable, and are available in 2m or 4m lengths as standard and terminated with IP68 FireWire at one end and a standard FireWire connector at the other. Other configurations are available for volume users. The panel mounted connectors are terminated with adaptor leads for connection onto PCB’s.
