RJ point five connector

From Tyco Electronics comes a RJ point five connector system designed to offer double the port density of the standard RJ 45 Ethernet link while maintaining field termination capability.

The product supports Gigabit speeds of Cat5E UTP cable, in integrated and non-integrated magnetic solutions, with a roadmap to support PoE+ and 10GBASE-T over Cat 6a cable.

With port spacing on a 7mm centerline, the RJ point five connector occupies about half the space of a RJ 45 Ethernet link, using the same footprint to support both integrated magnetic and non-integrated solutions. The modular configuration of the receptacle allows for easy and rapid deployment of product extensions.

Along with the high density receptacle, Tyco provides the mating cable assembly designed to provide superior electrical performance. The legacy 3/6 contact pairing in RJ 45 applications has been replaced with a quadrant style design to minimize noise and maximize return loss performance.

Additionally, the latching feature supports an easy-to-use lanyard that will facilitate up to 96 ports on a single line card. The cable assemblies are capable of field termination. Cable management solutions for single box and rack configurations are also available.

Specific applications include: high density Ethernet switching/routing products, data center switching (top-of-rack, end-of-row, and mid-row), server I/O, and wiring closet switching products.
