Instruction | Which kind of RJ45 connectors I need?

With the development of network cable, the type of RJ45 connectors has been changing as well. There are plenty of RJ45 connectors, not only be divided by Category of network cable, but also can be parted whether there is a dovetail clip , a load bar, a cable cap; and the demand of wire OD and AWG, and other more details.

Here I just take some typical types of RJ45 connectors for examples, among which you may find the one you need.

For relatively new kind of cable such as Cat7, the RJ45 connectors are always with a dovetail cilp, which can be fixed closely on the cable to provide a secure connection.

I’d like to show you following two kinds of connectors that has the dovetail cilp.

  • Compatibility:Cat7 ,Cat6a solid or stranded conductors, backwards compatible with Cat6, Cat5e 
    • Superior Transmission meets Cat6a performance requirements per ANSI/TIA-568-B.2-10 for a Gigabit Ethernet channel compliant network;
    • The Ethernet cable cap compatible with cable OD 7~8mm
    • Secure termination for shielded or outdoor-rated cable with an IP camera or security camera installation
  • Suitable for :23 to 26 AWG round or flat solid or stranded wire, for wire core OD 1.35~1.45mm, AWG and OD MUST BOTH meet the requirements
  • Character:
    • Superior Construction :STP wire connectors , metal housing , 50 micron gold-plated contacts
    • Advantage:
      • Robust shield termination and strain reliefallow for one-step termination process to suppress alien crosstalk and provide a secure connection
      • Faster speed with less interference
      • With Ethernet RJ45 Cable Cap Connector Boots, protect the connector of the cable and prevent dust and water from entering the plugs.

Well, if you think the black one is a little boring, there is another one called SJ651, which looks like more delicate. Look at the picture of SJ651, you can see this one has gold plated and transparent cable cap connector strain relief boots instead of nickel plated shielded and black cable cap of SJ650, which makes it nicer. Moreover, it is stronger than SJ650 because it is more compatible with Cat6 and can support 22 to 26 AWG round or flat solid or stranded wire. Except these tiny differences, for other aspects like character and advantages, SJ651 is as excellent as the SJ650.

On the other hand, as for older but more common category like Cat6, Cat5e or Cat5, there are more choices provided. I pick up other 4 products, including SJ653, SJ656, SJ660 and SJ661.For most aspects they are similar, except few points.
