Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG, manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components, is expanding the portfolio of their Ethernet modules with LAN transformers for speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s. The new transformers support Power over Ethernet (PoE) up to 100 W and currents up to 1 A per channel. Würth Elektronik eiSos is the only manufacturer worldwide to offer 10-Gbit LAN transformers with an extended temperature range (-40 to +85 °C).
WE-LAN 10G has a bandwidth of up to 500 MHz and thus conforms to the IEEE Standard 802.3 with a bandwidth three-and-a-half times larger than comparable gigabit Ethernet products. This makes the transformers suitable for applications involving large data volumes or ones in which a swift transmission of data is called for. One such example – the quasi real-time transmission of high-definition video data in the home entertainment sector or for video displays in the public space. Another special feature: Thanks to the extended temperature range, the modules are also suited for industrial applications – an important requirement for the growth sectors IoT (Internet of Things) and Industry 4.0.
The 10-Gbit LAN series is just one part of the comprehensive range of LAN products with over 350 different articles of discrete and integrated (RJ45) LAN transformers. The company also supplies a large number of unfiltered RJ45 plug-in connectors.
The Würth Elektronik eiSos company’s product portfolio of LAN transformers covers all standard transmission speeds and is suited for industrial temperatures of up to 125°C and insulation voltages of up to 6 kV.
