RJ45 Modular Plugs

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 modular plugs that help reduce the distance between conductor and contacts for optimum signal strength.

When running network cables in close proximity to high voltage you might want to consider the Shielded RJ45 Connector for CAT5E Solid and Stranded Cable. 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 coating the pins. Gold does not rust, so the coating provides an extra layer of protection against oxidization. It is compatible with both solid and stranded CAT5E cable.

Primus Cable also carries Shielded RJ45 Connector for CAT6, CAT6A, and CAT7 Cable. It includes inserts which are part of the design. Slim strain relief prevents cable damage from pulling, and the wire alignment insert provides efficient assembly. This 8 pin 8 conductor RJ45 modular plug fits CAT6, CAT6A, and CAT7 Ethernet cable with both solid and stranded conductors.

50 micron gold plating over the RJ45 pins helps improve signal conductivity. Ultimately, this shielded RJ45 modular plug saves time and money as it enables efficiency.

Also consider that RJ45 connectors require a crimping tool to install. Our CAT6(A) Crimping Tool, Ratchet Type, for Modular Plugs 8P8C/RJ45 is ideal for terminating CAT 6 and CAT 6A cable to install with RJ45 connectors. This crimping tool is compatible with both solid and stranded cable. Having the right tools for the job makes the networking project run efficiently. Save time and money with Primus Cabletoday!
