Bomar Interconnect Products Inc. has added a shielded version of its Category 6 EZ-RJ45 (P/N 300668SEZ) connector and a snagless boot (P/N CBX600EZ) to it EZ series of connectors. The EZ Series is comprised of connectors rated for CAT 5, CAT 5e and CAT 6.

The shielded connector exceeds the CAT 6 performance requirements per TIA/EIA-568-B when used in conjunction with a standard strain relief boot, or the new snagless boot. The FCC compliant, UL rated CAT 6 EZ-RJ45 features 50microinches of gold plate. The connector is well suited for a range of high-speed residential, telecommunications, and broadband communications applications where better insertion loss, near end crosstalk (NEXT), return loss and equal-level far end crosstalk (ELFEXT) are required.

In addition to preventing cable retraction snags, the new snagless boot provides an extended release mechanism for the connector and supplementary strain relief. The boots are installed prior to crimping and become permanently affixed to the connectors. They can be crimped with a standard tool, and then trimmed with a cutter or small utility knife, or with Bomar's crimp tool (P/N BD45000), which crimps and trims the exposed conductors in one operation to make a uniform and positive crimp.

The EZ series is specifically engineered to simplify twisted pair terminations thanks to a one-piece design that has no bars or liners, enabling technicians to slide the wire through the connector and out the front. This makes it easy to visually confirm the wiring pinout prior to crimping, and to further optimize electrical performance, the technician is able to pull the connector over the cable jacket and seat it securely in the rear of the connector to minimize the distance between the wire twists and contacts. The EZ series accepts both solid and stranded wire for faster terminations with reduced scrap.

Distributor pricing for the shielded CAT 6 EZ-RJ45 connectors is $2.47 each in quantities of 100 and snagless boots are priced at 53 cents each in quantities of 100.

Delivery is from stock.
