Industrial RJ45 Modular Plug Overview and How to Crimp

Field-Installable Industrial RJ45 Modular Plugs are designed for termination of distribution cables and equipment cables connecting directly to such terminal and field devices as security cameras, industrial electronics, and for patching in environments where hardened and reliable connections are required. Plugs are also equipped for termination of stranded or solid conductor cables. PCB-based plug design guarantees high-quality termination in the field, while tool-less termination feature provides quick task completion. Let’s check out an overview and How To Video from our YouTube channel.

One of my favorite things I like about this Industrial RJ45 is that it’s made by Signamax. It’s a great company that has been around forever and inventory is easily found in the U.S. and internationally. Back to this Industrial RJ45, let’s review the features.
