Vibration proof connectivity

07 November 2008

GarrettCom Europe has introduced a solution for its 6KQ range of Ethernet switches to eliminate the possibility of cables coming loose in high vibration environments. A slotted bracket is simply attached to the 6KQ via one of its existing screw mounting points, allowing all cables to be held securely in place with standard cable ties.

The bracket significantly improves on conventional secure connector solutions, which are only suitable for replacing the RJ45 copper connectors, and do nothing to secure either fibre optic connectors or power connectors.

It can be configured with up to twelve 100Mb fibre ports. The 6KQ has been developed to meet user requirements for small form factor Gigabit Ethernet switches in demanding industrial applications. It is sealed to IP53, and features a unique case design for maximum heat dissipation.

To meet the needs of demanding industrial Ethernet applications, the 6KQ can easily handle stressful workload mixtures of high-burst data traffic and priority streaming traffic.

The 6KQ features an advanced thermal design, using a ribbed aluminium case to produce maximum heat dissipation in a rugged, sealed package. The design eliminates the need for fan cooling. The 6KQ is certified for use in hazardous environments.
