Stewart Connector, a Bel group company, announces the release of the Cat6 and Cat6A RJ45 punch down modular plugs.
Stewart Connector’s RJ45 punch down plugs are time-saving solutions for Ethernet connections that require field terminations. The easy to use color-coded conductor pre-load wire manager provides an efficient termination without the need for tools. RJ45 punch down plugs can be used for solid or stranded 23-26 AWG cable with a diameter over the conductor insulation up to 1.6mm (0.63 in.) and accepts an overall cable OD of 6 mm (0.236 in.) to 8 mm (0.315 in.). These connectors feature contacts with 50 micro inches of gold plating for increased cycle life and zinc die-cast housing and latch protectors suitable to withstand harsh environments. The Cat6 punch down plug is suitable for use in 1G Base-T networks and the Cat6A for 10G Base-T networks.
Applications include data, telecom, wireless, PoE applications, and industrial equipment connections.
