Keying enables secure Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet

RJ45 Secure connector system from Tyco Electronics Amp Netconnect business unit is a jack and plug connector system that features mutually exclusive keys for restricted access to network connection points.


Harrisburg, PA —The RJ45 Secure connector system from Tyco Electronics Amp Netconnect business unit is a jack and plug connector system that features mutually exclusive keys for restricted access to network connection points. With this new system, modular jacks are color coded to mate with the patch cable assemblies using a keying configuration that prevents mating a cable to a modular jack unless the keying (and color coding) matches.

RJ45 Secure connectors do not mate with standard RJ45 jacks, but only the correct, same-color jack. The products meet or exceed TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1 and ISO/IEC 11801 requirements for Category 6 component performance. The system complies performance requirements for current applications including Gigabit Ethernet, 10 and 100BASE-TX, token ring, 155 Mbps ATM, 100 Mbps TP-PMD, ISDN, analog and digital video and analog and digital voice (VoIP) as well as other current and proposed standards requiring Category 6 or Category 5e performance.


It has a slim profile and is compatible with SL Series and 110Connect faceplates. Universal wiring labels permit termination to either T568A or T568B wiring patterns. Shielded or unshielded versions are available with cable dressing from the rear or at 90 degrees. Cable strain relief options can also be specified. Patch cables provide consistent performance and carry CM ratings.


Standard constructions include stranded cable and snagless, colored boots. Patch cables are available in a number of lengths ranging from 2 ft up to 100 ft.
