Würth’s LAN transformers target industrial Ethernet interfaces with improved crosstalk and return loss.
By Gina Roos, editor-in-chief
Würth Elektronik eiSos has expanded its LAN portfolio with the introduction of the WE-LAN AQ LAN transformers. Designed for high-reliability requirements in the industrial industry, the transformers deliver high performance over a wide frequency range thanks to its coil winding technology that reduces electrical fluctuations and increases reliability.
Developed for industrial Ethernet communication interfaces, the LAN transformers are compatible with Ethernet systems such as EtherCAT and Profinet. They are available in two versions: 10/100Base-T and 1000Base-
Key specs include:
- Crosstalk: -35 dB
- Insertion loss: -1.1 dB
- Return loss: -10 dB to -18 dB
- Temperature range: -40°C to 85°C
The family is housed in a small package with a maximum height of 4.5 mm and is suited for SMT assembly. Applications include hubs, routers, switches, IP cameras, and internet of things (IoT). The device is available from stock at https://katalog.we-online.de/en/pbs/WE-LANAQ.
