A range of ruggedised Cat 6 RJ45 connectors, using proven, Neutrik style body-shells, cable clamping and secure ‘push-pull’ latching mechanisms. These fully shielded connectors are fully Cat6 compliant, offering data rates up to 10GBits/s, high noise and EMI immunity. and are IP65 rated when mated.
The Ethercon Cat6 was designed for data transfer interconnections where a more robust connector is required than the basic RJ45, and are especially suitable for location and outdoor applications, stage, studio and other commercial and industrial environments. It utilises a push-pull shell latching system rather than the delicate plastic latch on the RJ45 (which is disabled in the Ethercon application).
The panel connectors are integrated into the main Neutrik ranges, permitting easy mounting in Universal Series panels and other pre-punched metalwork. They have a D-series style metal shell and secure latching system, and offer a tool-free and gas-tight IDC termination. They have a ground lead jumper with selectable grounding option. The cable is clamped, pairs are separated and trimmed, then laid into slots. Closing a cover completes the IDC termination without punchdown tools. They are available with nickel or black (-B suffix) shells.
Note: Ethercon Cat6 are NOT intermatable with the Ethercon Cat5E or Cat6A series.
The NE8MC-6S cable connectors are not available for user termination, but are supplied pre-assembled as screened patchcords - see Neutrik Ethercon Cat6 Screened Patchcords.
