Molex Inc. has expanded its innovative Brad Micro-Change M12 Circular Hybrid Technology (CHT) Connector System with the addition of a new 8-pole (4+4) connector featuring two Cat5e twisted-pair data lines and four power lines capable of carrying up to 6.0 Amps.
Combining power and data lines into one connector, the Brad Micro-Change CHT Connector System reduces cabling requirements and lowers installation time and associated costs.
The wrap-around metal shielding allows power and Cat5e signal to be combined in one connector without losing optimum signal integrity and performance. The two overlapping tubes channel the signal through the connector without affecting crosstalk and electromagnetic interference (EMI). The new 8-pole (4+4) Micro-Change CHT connector is currently available in the M12 threaded form factor.
