Safe Data Transmission in the Field

Variant 14 data connectors suitable for harsh environments.
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – The new push-pull Advance data connectors from Phoenix Contact bring future-proof, high-speed cabling directly to the field. The push-pull connection technology complies with ODVA’s Variant 14.
Designed for data rates of up to 10 Gbps, the connectors have IP65/67 protection against dirt, dust, and humidity. With their 360-degree shielding, they are also immune to electromagnetic interference.
The push-pull technology means that users can insert and remove the connectors easily. However, a mechanical locking mechanism reliably prevents unintentional release of the connection.
The series includes versions for Profinet and Ethernet, designed for conductor sizes from 26 to 22 AWG. Fiber-optic versions for POF, GOF, and PCF fibers with a SC-RJ connector interface are available. Both the straight and 45-degree angled versions are suitable for cable diameters up to 9.5 mm.
