[Johannesburg, 22 May 2019]: With the STX M12x1 IP67 connector series for railway and vehicle applications from Telegärtner, Jasco’s Webb Industries is offering various solutions for applications in harsh environments. 

An add-on to the previous M12 connector series, the new series contains M12x1 X-coded connectors as plug and socket versions which are suitable for connecting to cables with both solid and stranded conductors, as well as offering 360° shielding. This shielding ensures safe and reliable data transmission.

The range is completed with factory-made cable assemblies for connections between end device and end device or end device and distribution point. The cable assemblies are available in multiple configurations and the packaging and cable printing can be individually customised.

As 8-pole, X-coded compact connectors in Cat.6A, the M12 from Telegärtner can transmit data rates of up to 10 Gbit/s in accordance with IEC 61076-2-109:2014. Even in harsh environments, the high bandwidth is ensured by separating the four pairs with a cross shield (X-coding). Remote powering of end devices is also possible.

Key applications

The expansion of communication infrastructure in rail and vehicle applications is advancing to make the on-board experience as comfortable and entertaining as possible for the passengers. In addition to real-time information about the train schedule, passengers want the flexibility to be able to work and surf on board.

Besides the onboard applications for passengers, even more processes are being automated by the vehicle operators. For example, processes like security systems where the carriages will be monitored by IP cameras or traffic flows will be managed automatically by the individual trains.

Therefore, train manufacturers are obliged to constantly improve their communication network infrastructure in the vehicles so they can offer a working, safe and reliable network.

Basic structure

The basic structure of the new Telegärtner connector with X-coding corresponds to the M12 system used worldwide. This has found its way into many different industries with extreme conditions thanks to its compact design and industrial compatibility.

The extremely robust M12x1 connector in Category 6A can be fitted on site without any special tools. The assembly-friendly connector also features very good shield contacting and covers a wide range of wire diameters (0,9 to 1,6 mm) and cable diameters (5,5 to 9 mm).

X-coded connecting cables

For connecting an IP camera, the passenger information system in carriages or other applications where data rates need to be transmitted, Telegärtner also offers factory-made Category 6A connecting cables. The M12x1 X-coded connecting cables guarantee transmission rates of up to 10 Gbit and are available in different configurations and length variants from stock.

The over-moulded connectors are tested to IP67 against particle and water ingress. The M12x1 X-coded connecting cables have an S/FTP 4x2xAWG24/19 structure and a jacket material specially developed for transport applications, the cables pass the high requirements for fire safety regulations in the transport industry.

The connecting cables are supplied with Telegärtner printing on each cable and in Telegärtner packaging. If required, the packaging and printing can be adjusted to meet the customer’s specific requirements. Other configurations and adapter cables such as X-coded to D-coded or A-coded are available on request.

[Johannesburg, 1 April 2019]: Jasco’s Webb Industries has introduced Telegärtner’s new, modular rail-mount fibre optic distributor. The all-new STX distributor can be extended according to actual needs. The stackable modules allow quick and easy additions and changes at any time. A vast portfolio of modules with different adaptors offers the flexibility that is needed in today’s industrial networks. In spite of their compact size, the modules offer more than enough space for fibre slack.

Huge Variety of Connecting Hardware

The STX rail-mount distributor offers a vast portfolio of different modules that accept twelve fibres and ST, SC and LC adaptors as well as a high-density LC module with 24 fibres. All modules are available for OM1 to OM4 multimode and OS2 single-mode fibres.

Customers can select from a huge variety of modules for pre-terminated breakout and mini-breakout cables. This includes modules with an integrated hinged splice cassette and pigtails stripped ready-to-splice and modules for pre-terminated fibre optic cables – each of them proving the Telegärtner STX distributor’s superior expertise.

The adaptors are mounted at a 45-degree angle so users can conveniently plug patch cords in and out using a minimum of valuable space. Horizontal cables can enter the modules from four different directions. This gives the installer the opportunity to decide on site about the best cable routing. “This offers users and installers the maximum flexibility”, says Webb’s Stephen Hands.

Space Miracle with Small Dimensions

With dimensions of just 35 x 215 x 155 mm (two-module width), the compact modules make the most of available space, enabling users and installers at the same time to conveniently patch and store any fibre slack. The modules can be mounted on TH35 rails as specified in DIN 60715 and on flat surfaces/walls.

 [Johannesburg, 13 February 2019]: Leading telecommunications solutions provider Webb Industries, part of the Jasco group, reports a growing demand for its upgraded Glass-Mount mobile antennas. This is according to Webb chief engineer, Terry Reuss, who says that sales have been excellent since the latest version was brought to market.

The Glass-Mount antenna was first produced by Webb more than 15 years ago when it was very popular for cell phone car kits as it could be attached to the windscreen, obviating the need to drill holes in the vehicle.

“By extending the offering to the public mobile radio (PMR) market, there is newfound demand for the Glass Mount antenna, which is proving particularly popular in the mining environment where it is being fitted to a wide range of mining vehicles,” Reuss says.

From a technical perspective, the Glass-Mounts are VHF, half-wave, end-fed antennas with the radio signal transmitted through the glass to the antenna.  The whip is easily adjustable to the vertical position and is removable when required.

Reuss says because of the resurgent demand for the Glass-Mount, Webb is now looking at extending the Glass-Mount range to include other frequencies as well.

[Johannesburg, 29 May 2018]: Jasco’s Webb Industries has developed an enviable reputation for innovation in the telecommunications industry and its Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) is an excellent example of this.

The RDS is a typically single-user site solution which does not require concrete or any excavation and has a very low environmental impact. “The main advantage of the RDS is the speed with which it can be installed. It takes only 1-4 days to erect depending on the size,” says Webb Masts and Towers GM Dave Beeming.

He adds that the RDS, designed by Webb’s in-house engineers, can be reused, relocated and erected on almost any site, both urban and rural. “While there are competitive products, ours is unique in terms of its flexibility, user-friendliness, and cost-effectiveness,” says Beeming.

The applications for the RDS are wide and varied. “They are used wherever speed is the main requirement and users include GSM operators, the South African Police Services and event organisers for concerts, sports tournaments, political rallies and the like.”

He adds that for GSM operators the RDS serves a vital role in giving them time while they wait for a more permanent solution. “A permanent site solution can take months while the bureaucratic administration is completed.  This delay can be very costly for the operators. Webb’s RDS, not requiring the same complex licencing procedure, acts as a vital stopgap in a period that the operator would otherwise not be making any revenue,” he says. “Furthermore, it gives an operator a marketing edge in specific locations because of its ability to be fully operational even while waiting for the permanent solution.”

Some of the more important advantages of Webb’s RDS are:

  • Helps to overcome site acquisition constraints
  • Saves on rigging and installation costs due to short time spent on site
  • Speed and ease of erection (i.e. no need for cranes)
  • Suitable for both urban and rural sites
  • Easy handling, very flexible and can be reused or relocated
  • Above ground foundation, low soil-bearing capacity
  • Compact site footprint, up to a maximum of 6m X 6m

Webb Masts and Towers supplies a wide range of products made to the highest standards. These include Tapered and Parallel Tubular/Angle Lattice Towers, Guyed Lattice Towers, roof-top solutions (penetrating and non-penetrating) and, of course, Rapid Deployment Structures.

“We also specialise in custom design towers and solutions,” concludes Beeming.
