Metal die-cast housing provides the mechanical protection and electrical shielding needed for industrial networks. No special tools are required to terminate the RJ45 plug. Accepts a wide range of cable outside diameters, including thick ones used in the industrial applications, and is suitable for both solid and stranded conductors. Even the locking tab is made of unbreakable nylon for maintaining up time in the installation. The company also has a version that can be configured so the wire entry is in any of 32 different positions.
