The bayonet-style mating prevents over tightening, which can cause damage to the connector and pins, in addition to under tightening, which can lead to ingression. The bayonet-style locking mechanism requires only a quarter turn to attach and lock—providing quick and easy installation.
Developed specifically to provide protection against water, the connector is water resistant in depths of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. Additionally, the connector features CAT 5e performance, which allows data transmission at speeds of up to 1000 Mbps (1 Gigabit per second) and performance in harsh environments, including applications using toxic chemicals. Available in both plastic and metal models. Works in all Ethernet applications. Mating cordsets and closure caps with matching bayonet style IP 67 RJ45 connectors are available.
