RJ45 Modular Connectors & Boots

The registered jack (RJ45) modular plug is a standardized interface for data networking. The 8 position, 8 contact (8P8C) is the RJ45 configuration, and the most common type of plug for Ethernet networking. Male modular connectors are called plugs, while female connectors are jacks. We supply RJ45 connectors that help reduce the distance between conductor and contacts for optimum signal strength.

Need RJ45 modular plugs for solid and stranded CAT5E cable? The Shielded RJ45 Connector for CAT5E is an RJ45 modular plug with a polycarbonate housing and a copper alloy shielded shell. Its made to accommodate both solid and stranded CAT5E cable with four twisted pair conductors. This RJ45 connector fits 24 to 26 gauge wires, and has 50 microns of gold plating on the contacts.

Another popular item is the Shielded RJ45 Connector for CAT6, CAT6A, CAT7 solid and stranded Ethernet cable. The contacts are gold plated to improve conductivity while shielding prevents signal loss. It has a slim style strain relief. Wire alignment insert promotes efficient cable assembly and termination. This RJ45 connector is popular with CAT6A cable for 10 Gigabit Ethernet networking.

Primus Cableprovides end-to-end solutions for your networking project. We also supply crimping tools such as the EZ RJ45® Wire Crimping Tool for efficiently preparing CAT 5/5E/6 cable to install. It also works with RJ11 and RJ12 connectors, except for AMP. This versatile crimping tool has both a wire cutter and wire stripper built in. The ratcheted straight action crimping motion ensures a uniform crimp every cycle, for precise and accurate results.
