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.

  • Meet ISO/IEC 11801 and ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 patch cord requirements
  • Overall “360-degree” solid-metal shielding design
  • Toolless field termination
  • Compatible with solid and stranded conductors
  • PCB-based electrical design
  • T568A and T568B wiring with an easy to read color-code wiring label
  • Rated for at least 750 insertion cycles
  • Compatible with all Signamax modular connectors

We do have these in stock in a Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat6A. For more information and or order online visit

Din Rail solution for Category Jacks!

Signamax Keystone Industrial DIN Rail Mounting Modules afford an opportunity to combine advantages of regular keystone jack design and transmission performance with simplicity and usability of industrial DIN-rail mounting systems.

Din Rail for Jack
State-of-the-art module’s design provides all kinds of features usually found in office work area solutions, – universal labeling, protection covers, “front access,” “gravity compensation” for patch cords along with such important for the industrial applications aspects as tool-less mounting and replacement of connector modules, quick access to any part of the assembly. Additionally, modules allow installing screened jacks without any extra efforts, parts, and tools.

Let’s get a good look at it from our YouTube channel.

There it is, the easiest and best way to get category jacks mounted on that Din Rail. To order the Signamax KI-DIN-RMM-SL visit

Running Fiber to the Antenna?

Recently I was on a call with a customer and he ordered some fiber optic cable for a FTTA installation. So I did some digging around about what else in involved and how are these cables installed. I found a decent video regarding an installation like this.

The large reel with the power cable included was interesting. I decided to make a couple of phone calls to manufactures and seem like right now that type of cable is only offered and sold to the cell tower companies.

The cable my customer purchased was a indoor outdoor pre-made cable, and it was only to replace the coax cables. There was no need to touch power since power was already ran for existing equipment. Here’s a look at some of our other pre-terminated fiber optic cable options.

I wonder how much they get at the recycling yard for those coax cables.

This is a cool High Powered ceiling mount Access Point!

Let’s talk about how this Intellinet AP serves as multiple purposes, an access point for your wireless network supporting multiple SSIDs and tagged VLANs, and a wireless bridge for point to point connections or WDS setups and brings it all together so that the devices can access a high speed internet connection.

You can also configure it in five different modes.

– Access Point

– Point to Point

– Point to Multi-Point

– Universal Repeater

– AP Client

Go ahead and add support for multiple ESSIDs and VLANs to that and it becomes clear that whatever your requirements are the Intellinet 300N provides a solution.

The Intellinet 300N PoE AP comes with a PoE PD port! Use it to power it from a PoE-compliant LAN switch.

Let’s get a good look at it from our YouTube channel.

Here’s a quick look at the features:

– Up to 300 Mbps network link speed

– Super long-range indoor Wireless N range extender and universal repeater

– Smoke detector design

– Complies with 2.4 Ghz IEEE 802.11n standard and is backward compatible with IEEE 802.11g/b standards

– 2T2R MIMO technology for enhanced throughput and coverage

– Supports WMN function to meet the multimedia data bandwidth requirement

– Supports WiFi protection set up

– Supports WEP and WPA/WPA2 (TKIP and AES) data encryption

– IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE-powered device with one PoE (PD) port

– DHCP server assigns IP address for all LAN users

– Easy installation through Web-based user interface

– Firmware upgradeable

– Three year warranty

As you can tell this AP is loaded and should handle anything you throw at it! If you want to check out the specs and to order online visit
