Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the IX Series I/O connector from Hirose Electric Company. The small, robust design with high-speed data transmission enables advancements in factory automation, data centers, security systems, programmable logic controllers, and transportation applications.

Hirose’s IEC PAS 61076-3-124-compliant IX Series I/O connector, available from Mouser Electronics, consists of a plug and receptacle that support CAT5e and CAT6a cabling. With continuous, 360-degree shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electrostatic discharge (ESD), the IX Series provides secure high-speed transmission rates up to 10 Gbps.

The snap-in I/O connector has a positive metal lock with a preload spring mechanism that provides a clear tactile click and ensures complete, secure mating. The preloaded springs are designed to prevent unintended cable removal and to extend the operating life to more than 5,000 mating/unmating cycles. The connector requires just one fourth of the installation area of RJ45 solutions, and saves space up to 28 percent compared to similar snap-in I/O connectors.

The narrow width of the receptacle is particularly beneficial when multiple connectors are positioned side-by-side on a single PCB. The receptacle shell is mounted on the PCB via through-hole solder legs to enhance PCB retention and to resist the wrenching of the cable assembly, helping to protect the SMT leads. The single plug shell integrates a wire-termination unit and cable clamp, which prevents the connecting part of the cable assembly from being affected by the load on the cable.

The IX Series I/O connector has a rated current of 0.5A (all pins), 1A (any two pins), and 2A (pin No. 1 and No. 8 only), an operating temperature range of minus 40 to 80 degrees Celsius, and a rated voltage of 30V AC.
