Neutrik’s new True Outdoor Protection series

Neutrik’s etherCON connectors have been a great succes for more than several years now. This heavy duty network connector has proven itself in a wide variety of applications. From fixed installations to mobile use, wherever a rugged RJ45 link is needed, etherCON is simply the best option for a safe data connection. Permanent outdoor use however is still a sketchy thing as equipment cannot be compromised by bad or extreme weather conditions. That’s why Neutrik have come up with the brand new etherCON TOP series. These connectors feature the same robust construction, but in addition to the standard series offer even more protection against UV radiation and water and dust ingress (IP65)
