RJ45 modular jack connectors
FCI has expanded its modular jack product line with multi-port and single-port RJ45 connectors. The modular jack is ideal for broadband switches, hubs, routers, servers and telecommunications applications. FCI compared its RJ45 with selective gold plating against traditional versions with full gold plating and found no deterioration of the connector’s durability or performance, the company said. The connectors support Category 3 wiring for the transmission of a 16-Mbps signal in networking and telecommunication equipment. They are able to withstand operating temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees C.
