The logical consequence is that connector components used in office cabling (RJ45, LC Duplex) are now becoming more common in automation cabling. Field-mountable connectors are also used in point-to-point cabling. 

All of these components are subjected to industrial conditions that pose the highest demands in terms of durability. R&M noticed this trend at an early stage and has developed standardized connection solutions for Ethernet networks so that they can be used in all conditions in the field of industrial automation.
