Housing mounts to DIN rail and offers the control cabinet builder an elegant way of terminating both copper and fiber networks. Using a ‘housing/module’ concept, the builder can specify which type of connector goes into the housing. For RJ45, there are options available depending whether you want the control side wiring to enter from the top or the bottom. Modules are available with either hard-wired on the control side or use a coupler for a dual ended RJ45. Fiber optic modules can fit into the same housing. The company also has larger multi-point solutions available as well.
