RICHMOND, VA ‚â€“ Weidmuller introduces a new line RJ45 Ethernet connectors. These connectors are the only two-piece Ethernet connector that does not require any cable stripping or crimping, for truly tool-free installation. The only tool needed for termination is a knife or cutting tool to remove the cable‚â€™s outer jacket and cut the conductors to length.
The new RJ45 Ethernet connectors also feature built-in strain relief and full shielding for each cable assembly. Fully functional, they can terminate 4 to 8 wires. Full 8-wire termination of 22-26 AWG conductors result in an industry leading rating of 10GIG performance, in addition to 10/100 and GigE.
Each connector comes with an easy-to-read color wire diagram so technicians can quickly wire the connector for TIA-A and TIA-B (Telecommunications Industry Association), and Profinet wiring types. ‚â€œWith these new connectors a technician can now terminate a network connection with a just few minutes of training and simple hand tools,‚â€ said Tobin Robertson, Product Manager.
They are designed to work with Weidmuller‚â€™s modular line of STEADYTEC housings and bulkheads for instant IP67 protection in both coupling and through panel access.
