Belden Connectors Enable Fast, On-Site Industrial Ethernet Connections

Field Attachable Connectors from Lumberg Automation Make EtherNet/IP and PROFINET Set-Up Easy with Insulation-Displacement Technology



Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has launched two connectors from Lumberg Automation - designed specifically for establishing industrial Ethernet connections in applications with challenging conditions, such as railway and on machine. The RSCIS 4D/9 and BRSCIS 4D/9 connectors feature a patented insulation-displacement connector (IDC) technology for a highly-reliable and efficient data connection in unforgiving environments.


“Our customers not only want connectors that can withstand the harshest conditions, but also need a product that’s easy to install, saves time, is flexible and improves their network’s efficiency and reliability,” said Fabian Seymer, product manager at Belden. “We’ve designed these new connectors with those needs in mind – resulting in a small size with fool-proof mounting characteristics – to make them easier to handle and install in the field.”

Two versions of the Lumberg Automation connectors are available, each with specific features for certain applications:

  • The RSCIS 4D/9 connectors are designed specifically to meet the safety and quality needs of automotive, machine building and material handling applications, and will also carry UL’s seal of quality in the near future.
  • The BRSCIS 4D/9 connectors are proven for use in railway applications – according to Europe’s stringent DIN EN requirements – where vibration and inflammability are major concerns when it comes to transportation system reliability and the safety of the people traveling.

To offer network engineers, system integrators and machine builders the most efficient solution for establishing EtherNet/IP and PROFINET connections in the field, the new connectors feature an innovative, patented IDC technology – which no longer requires installers to strip the wire of insulation before connecting. Through this concept, the connectors also require minimum force, saving both time and effort during assembly and mounting.

Additional benefits of the connectors include a new left-hand thread between the connector and IDC body, which allows for fool-proof attachment to other interfaces. “We also know many applications face space constraints,” adds Seymer. “Our new connectors are approximately 10 percent smaller in diameter than the market standard for IDC connectors, which will make them easier to handle and install in tight spaces.”
