RJ45 CAT6A/6/5E 8 POSITION SHIELDED MODULAR PLUGS
IDEAL® 85-368 8-Contact 8-Position Feed-Through Shielded RJ45 Modular Plug
Our newest member of the Feed-Thru family of products is specifically designed to handle the challenges faced with field termination of shielded cables. The Cat 6A/6/5e connector is made to work with cables - shielded or unshielded, that have larger insulated conductor diameters that typically will not fit into a standard in-line modular plug design. Utilizing a unique conductor and pin stagger pattern, the single-piece design helps to funnel the conductors through the connector and out of the Feed-Thru end. No load bars or multi-piece assemblies are required. The connector is then terminated with the FT-45™ Crimp Tool. No adjustments or blade changes are required to the FT45™ to use this connector. The connector is designed for 0.04 in through 0.048 in insulated conductors, typically found in Cat 6A, Cat 6, and Cat 5e shielded cables. Shield continuity can be made internally by folding the cable foil over the jacket and making contact with the inside of the connector walls or externally by wrapping the cable drain wire around the base of the jacket strain relief clip. The jacket strain relief clip is pre-positioned in the up position so cable insertion is simplified. The pre-formed clip can be closed and crimped with a standard needle nose or plier-nose device like the IDEAL® 33-719 or other IDEAL® T®-Strippers Wire Strippers. Pin contacts are a 3 prong design and have 50 micro-in gold plated contact areas. The FT-45™ crimp tool , (IDEAL® 30-495) is required to properly terminate this connector.
