On the display at electronica 2018, booth #311, in Munich, Germany, Nov. 13-16, 2018, TE Connectivity (TE) - a world leader in connectivity and sensors, announced two new Ethernet solutions - the Heavy Duty Sealed Connector Series (HDSCS) and MCON Ethernet Connectors which were designed to withstand harsh environments and meet the tough requirements of the industrial and commercial transportation industry (ICT).
TE Connectivity's new portfolio of Ethernet connectors are resistant to dust, dirt and moisture, while withstanding severe vibration and mechanical shock, and to provide robust full duplex, wire-to-wire connections for multifunction displays, telematics, telemetry units, infotainment modules, camera systems, radars/lidars, on-board diagnosis systems, media access controllers and more.
The HDSCS and MCON Ethernet Connectors are ideal for sealed, high-vibration applications and can endure dust, dirt and moisture that are part of their operating environments. The HDSCS Ethernet Connectors is designed to avoid quality problems, while reducing manufacturing and service cost. The MCON Ethernet Connectors can be used to connect external cameras and sensing modules to improve operator situation awareness. This benefit enhances safety using Ethernet differential signal transmission communication protocols.
"As commercial transportation becomes increasingly connected, the amount of data that is transmitted and the speed requirements to do so have significantly increased," "To meet this demand, we've developed our new Ethernet connectors that allow our customers to seamlessly integrate more devices onto the network and accelerate data connectivity in their vehicles." said Christian Manko, Product Manager, High-Speed Data Connectivity, TE Connectivity. "We leveraged TE's automotive knowledge and vast product portfolio to develop the HDSCS and MCON Ethernet Connectors. Repurposing our passenger vehicle technology to manage higher data speeds in harsher environments means that our customers can count on the long term reliability of our products."
