Company’s 8-pole Ethernet connector is a pluggable RJ-45 connector that substantially decreases the time needed for Ethernet wiring. Unlike traditional Ethernet connectors, this new series features insulation displacement contact that provides tool-free, in-the-field conductor wiring- simply insert a pre-stripped conductor and lower the locking mechanism. The pluggable connector offers IP 20 protection for conductors ranging in size from AWG# 26-23 while color-coded IDC terminations provide instant conductor recognition. The connector accommodates both shielded (UTP) and unshielded (STP) conductors and the transmission rates meet Category 5e requirements.
