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.
