RJ45 Connectors

The standardized interface for data networking in the form of a Modular Plug is commonly referred to as an RJ45. 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 Plug Connectors as well as Jacks to accommodate, that will reduce the distance between conductor and contacts for optimum signal strength.

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.

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. Save time and money with Primus Cable, today!
