CAT8 RJ45 Connector - Single

Shielded Diecast Plated

When working with bulk cable such as Cat6A, Cat7 or Cat8 you will likely run into the problem of not being able to use the connectors you have with other network cable types such as Cat5 or Cat6. These newer cables are built differently, most being double shielded which means it is a thicker gauge overall. The outside diameter can be far greater than what you may be used to which means the connectors you may currently have on hand may not work.   

These RJ45 connectors are designed to work specifically with larger patch cables that have an overall outside diameter of between 5.6mm and 8.5mm. These RJ45 contacts are gold plated. They have 8 pins and 8 conductors (8p8c) with inserts included as part of the design. The wire alignment insert provides an efficient termination without any need of tools. A cable stripper is however recommended to expose the inner conductors. This connector has been rated for PoE and is capable of power transfer. 

Why Shield Your RJ45 Connectors?

This connector Housing is shielded with zinc die-cast nickel plating. This makes these connectors more durable while being less prone to corrosion and rust. Theses CAT 8 RJ45 connectors come standard with two different sizes of boots. These boots provide better stress relief support around the connection point of the cable and connector. The copper foil included with the RJ45 connector will also further shield from any unwanted EMI or crosstalk.
