RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, the global distributor for engineers, has augmented its extensive range of products from Phoenix Contact used in industrial and electronics applications with a new series of RJ45 connector devices.
Combining the trusted RJ45 format with innovative tool-free installation techniques, the Phoenix Contact CUC series offers a one-piece design providing easy installation even in hard to reach places. One of the most popular types of connectors, the RJ45 format is widely used by engineers working in networking and data communications.
Ideal for applications that require version 14 push-pull interlocking, preventing inadvertent connector removal, the series also allows users to assemble parts without special tools, as well as offering high shock and vibration resistance capability. The series also delivers 360° shielding with high resistance to ESD and EMC to protect data transmission integrity.
The CUC series includes a range of IP65/IP67-rated RJ45 connector plugs for Cat5e cabling, including straight and right-angle cable-mount options; panel-mounting frames for use with RJ45 connectors; a Cat5e and Cat6a RJ45 STP-shield straight socket insert; and an RJ45 protective cover.
The Phoenix Contact CUC series of RJ45 industrial connectivity devices is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
