TE Connectivity’s latest Industrial IP20 RJ45 Cat. 6A plug is based upon “common core” technology, a platform technology used in the entire industrial RJ45 product family. This RJ45 Cat. 6A plug is extending the family of Field Installable Cat5e common core designs with a connector that can be terminated tool-less with Cat6A cables in the field. This solution includes an automatic wire cutoff function, which provides an error-free installation and optimal performance in the field. Upon closing the core housing, the excess wire is cut off at the same time the wires are connected to the plug contacts.
This TE solution is capable of terminating the most commonly used wire variant Cat6A and can handle 10 Gbps bit rates, supporting bandwidths of up to 500 MHz.
