Copper – RJ45 connectors
The RJ45 concept has established itself as the connector format for copper cabling in structured cabling systems. The RJ45 is also rapidly gaining ground in the industrial sector. Alongside performance, sturdiness and reliability are the two main characteristics required. R&M has aimed for the highest quality from the very outset of its development of RJ45 components, a policy that is now paying dividends in industrial applications.
Features such as gold contacts, tin-coated Insulation Displacement Contacts, automatic shield contacting, integrated tension relief, 360° shielding and tool-free connection are a guarantee of outstanding connections, even under critical environmental influences. In prin-ciple, any component that has proved its worth in an office environment can also be used in an industrial environment, where it provides equally reliable connections. The high-quality plug-in components are given added protection through an IP protective casing and elements of the R&M security system.
The IP67-protected, RJ45 IP67 connector for Cat. 5e and Cat. 6 cabling provides plenty of performance reserves for copper cabling with large bandwidths in tough industrial environ-ments. All-around shielding is built in from the outset. It complies with the requirements of the IP67 protection index as specified by IEC 60529.
