There are different names for the probably best-selling plug connector in the world: Telephone plug, modular plug, data plug, network plug or Ethernet plug. The most accurate term is probably „Ethernet plug“. The Ethernet success story is inevitably linked to the RJ45 connector; with the step of the Ethernet protocol to the twisted pair medium. This has changed the simple remote control plug to the digital high speed star and, simultaneously, to the analogue power connector (PoE). Today‘s RJ45 connector is internationally standardised pursuant to IEC60603-7-x and therefore classified according to the well-known categories, such as Cat. 5e, Cat. 6 and Cat. 6A. Whether shielded or unshielded, classic crimp technology or tool-free assembling in the field – with EFB-Elektronik, you will find a comprehensive range for various applications.
