The standardized interface for data networking in the form of a Modular Plug is commonly referred to as an RJ45 connector. The 8 position, 8 contact, also known as 8P8C, is the configuration of the RJ45, the most common type of plug for Ethernet networking.

In addition, female connectors are recognized as Jacks, while the male modular connectors are called plugs. We supply RJ45 Modular Connectors as well as Jacks to accommodate, that will reduce the distance between conductor and contacts for optimum signal strength.

RJ45 Connectors We Recommend

The Shielded RJ45 Connector for CAT5E Solid and Stranded Cable is a viable option to consider when running networking cable in close proximity to high voltage applications; the reason being that the shielding of this RJ45 modular plug reduces electromagnetic interference, while preserving signal integrity.

This RJ45 plug is manufactured with 50 micron gold plating over bronze coated pins. Gold does not rust, so the coating provides an extra layer of protection against oxidization. This plug is compatible with both solid and stranded CAT5E cable.

The Shielded RJ45 Connector for CAT6, CAT6A, and CAT7 Cable includes inserts, which are part of the design. Slim strain relief prevents cable damage from pulling, and the wire alignment insert provides exceptional assembly.

This 8 pin, 8 conductor RJ45 Modular Plug fits CAT6, CAT6A, and CAT7 Ethernet cable with both solid and stranded conductors; the 50 micron gold plating over the RJ45 pins helps improve signal conductivity. Ultimately, this shielded RJ45 modular plug saves time and money through maximizing efficiency.

PoE Is The Future Of Ethernet

When it comes to running PoE over your network, there will be the occasional need to utilize RJ45 connectors in custom installations. We recommend our PoE capable CAT6A Shielded RJ45 Field Termination Plug and CAT8 shielded RJ45 Field Termination Plug. These plugs can deliver a powered device up to 13 watts of power, which is enough to run small office accessories. We also have our PoE+ capable CAT6A Shielded Flex Connector and CAT6A unshielded Flex Connector.

These flex connectors, on top of having a variety of custom installation options, offer PoE+ capability. The PoE+ offers 25.5 watts of power which is excellent for powering phones, cameras, WAPs, intercoms, and other powered devices. The bottom line is PoE can save time, money, effort, and space when it comes to installation! PoE is also future proof as more and more devices are using it for power.

Crimping Tools To Make Installation Easy

To accompany your purchase of Modular Plugs, you might also need a crimping tool and we got them. Our CAT6(A) Crimping Tool, Ratchet Type, for Modular Plugs 8P8C/RJ45 is ideal for terminating CAT6 and CAT6A cable to install with RJ45 connectors.

This crimping tool is compatible with both solid and stranded cable. Having the right tools for the job will make your networking project run smoothly. For more information on how to terminate an RJ45 connector, check out our guide to Terminating RJ45 Modular Plugs!
