Molex Inc. has extended its product offering for multi-port magnetic jacks with the introduction of PoE+ Enabled Gigabit Multi-port Magnetic RJ45 modules to meet a wider range of customer applications. Available in 12-port (2x6) and 8-port (2x4) versions, these magnetic RJ45 modules are designed for use in high port-count gigabit switches and routers, providing Gigabit data along with enabling delivery of PoE+ 30W power to networked end devices.
Capable of 10/100/1000Mbit transmission, the multi-port magnetic jacks are IEEE802.3 compliant; with an industry-standard footprint, they are drop-in replacement and provide switch manufacturers with a reliable source for the industry. The Gigabit magnetics within the modules are compatible with a variety of Gigabit Ethernet transceiver PHYs. The magnetic jacks feature two single- or bi-color LEDs per port, which support a full range of customer LED configuration requirements. Extended temperature connector options are also available.
