WAGO Corporation’s New RJ-45 Connector Offers Fast and Tool-Free Ethernet Connectivity
Germantown, WI – March 2008 –The new 8-pole 750-975 Ethernet Connector from WAGO Corporation is a pluggable RJ-45 connector that substantially decreases the time needed for Ethernet wiring. Unlike traditional Ethernet connectors, the 750-975 features insulation displacement contact that provides tool-free, in-the-field conductor wiring — simply insert a pre-stripped conductor and lower the locking mechanism.
The 750-975’s unique design makes it ideal for applications that are in close proximity to machines, such as those in suspended ceilings or distribution boxes because there is no need for expensive crimp tools or time-consuming preparation for the conductor ends. The new RJ-45 connector can reduce Ethernet wiring time by as much as 80%, which can contribute to lower overall operational costs.
The pluggable RJ-45 connector offers IP 20 protection for conductors ranging in size from AWG# 26–23 while color-coded IDC terminations provide instant conductor recognition. The connector accommodates both shielded (UTP) and unshielded (STP) conductors and the transmission rates meet Category 5e requirements (according to ISO/IEC 11801 and EN 50173-1) for high signal integrity. The 750-975’s contacts are vibration-proof, pull-out resistant and gas-tight while offering the additional convenience of being re-wireable.
