Weidmuller has released new line of RJ45 Ethernet connectors, claiming as the industry's only two-piece Ethernet connector that does not need any cable stripping or crimping for tool-free installation. The only tool required for termination is a knife or cutting tool to take out the cable's outer jacket and cut the conductors to its optimum length.

The RJ45 Ethernet connectors have built-in strain relief and full shielding for each cable assembly. When fully in operation, they can terminate four to eight wires. Full eight-wire termination of 22-26 AWG conductors' results provide an industry leading rating of 10Gbit performance, in addition to 10/100 and GbE.

Each connector comes with an easy-to-read color wire diagram so technicians can quickly wire the connector for Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA)-A and TIA-B, and Profinet wiring types. These connectors work well with Weidmuller's modular line of SteadyTec housings and bulkheads for IP67 protection in both coupling and through panel access.
