Modular RJ45 Jacks for PCB & Panel Applications
July 19, 2015
A new series of advanced 8P8C modular jacks suitable for 100Base-T (Fast Ethernet) applications to support the high-speed performance requirements of Gigabit Ethernet applications, are now available from Keystone Electronics Corp.
Manufactured for increased durability, the new Keystone RJ45 sockets can endure a minimum of 500 insertion cycles. Rated for 125 VAC RMS, these jacks are fully compliant with IEEE and IEC standards. A variety of styles are available to accommodate design applications with numerous mounting and port size options.
Horizontal (Right-angle) PCB modular jacks are available in Thru-Hole or Surface Mount soldering configurations. For Low Profile applications, request Cat. No. 943. For Compact designs, Cat. No. 942 is recommended. Applications that require a deeper socket can be met by using Cat. No. 948. Designs for surface mount installation can utilize Cat. No. 944.
For devices where connectivity will be perpendicular-to-the-board, a Vertical (Top-entry) PCB modular jack, Cat. No 949 is offered. As part of this new series, Keystone is offering a Panel Mount modular jack, Cat. No 946 which is supplied in a 2-piece locking design to simplify and secure wiring of the jack.
