The industrial mini I/O connector features two points of contact to maintain performance and increase reliability in high-vibration environments. The connector, about one-fourth the size of a traditional RJ-45 plug, includes a latching system designed to protect the plug from pull-out during high vibration or collision.

The polarized, wire-to-board interface has two keying options to prevent mismating and eight individual circuits to accommodate I/O signals. Electrical specifications include a 0.5-A current rating and 30-V rating on 0.635-mm centerline spacing. The connector operates at –40 to 70°C with a durability of 1,500 cycles. SMT and through-hole configurations are available.
