RJ45 CAT 5e/6a Ethernet
The SuperSeal™ family of ruggedized CAT 5e and 6a SuperNine connectors are IP68 rated in the mated condition for reliable environmental field use. SuperSeal™ connectors provide military grade protection and durability for operational use under harsh environmental conditions. SuperSeal™ connectors benefit from increased operating temperature range, longer life cycle and, significantly improved vibration and shock performance. CAT 5e and 6a RJ45 Ethernet is the standard data communication protocol for gathering, distribution and sharing of C4ISR information to and from command and field units within military, police fire and rescue organizations. SuperSeal™ provides key performance benefits including superior sealing, grounding, and wire termination for more flexible and reliable communications in rugged field applications.

Transient Voltage E-25 Suppression (TVS) RJ45 Connectors
Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) technologies are designed to shunt voltage transients directly to ground before such surges can damage sensitive electronic equipment. Individual TVS diodes as well as diode modules are incorporated directly into the TVS filter connector package to provide optimal protection for either individual contacts or groups of contacts without significant increases in connector size or weight. RTCA DO-160 and other electrical performance standards define acceptable benchmarks for withstanding electromagnetic pulse, lightning strike, or other induced voltage surges in high-reliability systems. For high-speed signals, care must be taken in selecting diodes to minimize capacitance loading effects which can lead to signal loss. Glenair SuperSeal™ TVS-equipped RJ45 connectors have been engineered to transmit high-speed signals while providing indirect lightning strike protection in accordance with the RTCA DO-160 standard.
