RCx

RCx is a simple, high density, low cost, passive connector and cable system specifically designed for intra-rack connectivity of 25 Gb, 50 Gb and 100 Gb Ethernet allowing for a seamless intra-rack switch to adapter deployments. The streamlined design eliminates the need to include provision for active electrical components such as EEPROMs, optics, retimers, or management ICs. RCx is density optimized and can accommodate more than 128 25 G lanes in a RU faceplate. That leads two RCx2 receptables to fit on a half-height PCIe card faceplate or two Rcx4 to fit on a full-height PCIe card faceplate. Versatile, the 4-lane RCx4 receptacle can be used as a 4-lane port, or can be bifurcated to be used as multiple 2-lane and 1-lane ports.

Environmental Specifications

  • Footprint

    This product is designed to reduce the footprint to allow for more board real estate and capture a slim and small design for your solution.

  • Halogen Free

    Again we want to preserve the earth by making our products free of elements that could harm it. RCx materials do not contain any compounds derived from harmful halogen elements.

  • Reach Compliant

    RCx like all other Amphenol products follow the Reach complacency. Some materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills. Amphenol wants to perserve our earth by using non hazardous materials.

  • Flammability

    Flammability Rating UL 94V-0

  • RoHS Complaint

    RCx like all other Amphenol products follow the RoHS complacency. Some materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills. Amphenol wants to perserve our earth by using non hazardous materials.
