The Patented High-Speed Module Makes it Possible

High Speed Modules

 

TRANSMITS MORE DATA IN LESS SPACE

  • The rectangular pin configuration of the HSM improves density.
  • Our Size 25 housing accommodates 10 Ethernet cables.
  • Our Size 17 housing accommodates 4 Ethernet cables.

Maximized Shell Size Density Reduces Interconnect Footprint

OUTSTANDING HIGH-SPEED PERFORMANCE

  • The HSM maintains data pair twists to control impedance.
  • Aluminum fins of the HSM isolate data pairs to reduce crosstalk.
  • A unique shield termination design provides 360° grounding contact.
  • The HSM extends through the PCB preventing crosstalk.

Robust Signal Integrity for Multiple Disconnects

REDUCES INSTALLATION TIME & OFFERS REPAIRABILITY

  • Industry-standard tools, 22D pins & sockets allow for simplified termination.
  • The interface between the connector body and HSM provides direct access to terminated wires.
  • PCB accessibility allows for pin changes without disturbing contacts or board components.
  • The anti-decoupling ring is easily disconnected, even with a gloved hand.

Direct Access to Every Terminated Pin Makes On-Site Repairs Possible

RUGGEDIZED TECHNOLOGY FOR CHALLENGING APPLICATIONS

  • The anti-decoupling ring allows for a secure connection in high shock and vibration environments.
  • Black Zinc Nickel (RoHS) or Olive Drab Cadmium plating options ensure connector longevity.
  • Backshells provide strain relief and ingress protection against sand, dust, and fluids.

Shielded 10G Ethernet Cable Solutions

MACHFORCE connectors have been tested and qualified with PIC Wire & Cable’s DataMATES® 10G Ethernet cables. The E6A6824 and E6A6826 CAT6a cables offer a shielding design that minimizes crosstalk between twisted pairs. These cables feature silver-plated copper braided shielding as well as foil shielding that reduces electromagnetic waves which are emitted from the pairs. When the MACHFORCE connector is paired with E6A6824 and E6A6826 cables, the resulting electrical performance allows for industry-leading cable lengths and multiple connection breaks.
