MilesTek introduces IP67 waterproof ethernet cables for military, avionics applications

MilesTek has announced it has released a new series of IP67-rated, Category 5e/6, dual-use waterproof, Ethernet cables designed to address harsh environment networking applications, the company said.

The innovative design of these new IP67 cables is sure to appeal to our military and industrial customers.

The unique design of MilesTek´s new IP67 waterproof cables allows them to be used with IP-rated receptacles for a watertight seal, or with standard RJ45 jacks. This design eliminates the need to custom order specialized cables that are IP-rated on one end and have a standard RJ45 connector on the other end. This dual functionality is accomplished by a waterproof shroud that can be pulled back to mate with standard RJ45 jacks.

Additional features of the new cable assemblies include a CMX outdoor burn rating, foil shield to protect against EMI/RFI interference and a tethered dustproof shroud cap. These versatile cables are available in both Cat 5e and Cat6 versions and are compatible with MilesTek´s IP67-rated, bulkhead panel-mount couplers for an IP67-rated seal.
