|The 3M industrial RJ45 modular plug is based on the standard RJ45 pin profile and was developed specifically for use in rugged, industrial IP 20 environments using double-shielded, four-twisted-pair-enhanced category 5 (Cat5e) cabling. 3M’s 50-year, award-winning, insulation displacement contact (IDC) technology, incorporated into the RJ45 modular plug, allows a reliable and easy termination process without the need to strip the wires. This RJ45 modular plug can be terminated in the field using only a pair of pliers. The plug is compact at 44 mm long, and has a robust design that helps reduce the likelihood of the latch breaking during multiple insertion and withdrawal cycles. All components of the field terminable industrial RJ45 modular plug are provided in a convenient blister pack.
