Glen Rock, PA, [September 10, 2019] Stewart Connector, a Bel group company, (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and world class manufacturer of high-speed connectors used in Data Communication applications announces the specification of automotive grade connectors that comply with SAE/USCAR-2 standards, designed for next generation vehicles that utilize Ethernet communication inside the automobile.

Stewart Connector’s automotive grade passive RJ45 connectors are compatible with vibration and sealing requirements necessary to comply with SAE/USCAR2-6 standards. Extensively tested, these automotive connectors are UL recognized, RoHS compliant and capable of supporting high temperature applications with an operating temperature of 100°C. They are ideal for applications like driver-assist radar, cameras, media converters and gateways.
