TE Connectivity (TE) announced the release of the CLOUDSPLITTER Connector System. The CLOUDSPLITTER connector system is a single cable solution for powered devices that delivers Cat5e performance and up to 250 watts of power over a single cable.
The system is RoHS/REACH compliant, designed to meet UL444 and utilizes CM rated cable. It is ideal for use in video surveillance over IP networks, intelligent building management, factory automation and wireless network transceivers. The CLOUDSPLITTER SMT cable plug combines eight 26AWG stranded signal conductors and two 18AWG stranded power conductors in shielded or unshielded configurations. The SMT jack is backward compatible and accepts a CLOUDSPLITTER plug or a standard RJ 45 shielded plug.
Its integrated power contacts provide DC power at 5A and up to 50 VDC. Two LED lights are included in the jack assembly for standard data transmit and receive indication. The CLOUDSPLITTER connector system’s unitized connection approach combines two connections into a single product to provide a power and data solution for devices.
