CAT8 Shielded Field Termination Plug - OD 7.3-9.0mm

SKU: CN1-6576-8C8S
UL Listed


Choose the Right RJ45 Connectors

Leverage the power of 40G with shielded termination plugs. Your data network is only as strong as your weakest link, so if you're using CAT8 Ethernet cable, make sure you have the correct plugs for the job.

The shielded CAT8 field termination plug is designed specifically for CAT8 bulk cable. This 8 pin 8 conductor (8p8c) plug has 50 micro inch gold plated contacts for superior signal conductivity. The wire alignment insert provides an efficient termination without a crimp tool, although a cable stripper is recommended to prepare the cable for termination. This connector has been rated for PoE and is capable of power transfer. 

Why Shield Your RJ45 Connectors?

This connector housing is shielded with zinc die-cast nickel plating. This makes our CAT8 plugs more durable while being less prone to corrosion and rust. All our CAT8 plugs come standard with two different sizes of boots. These boots provide better stress relief support around the connection point of the cable and connector. 

The copper foil included with the RJ45 connector will also further shield from any unwanted EMI or crosstalk. So, update your system today so your company can get faster, more efficient conversion rates.
