Wirewerks launches new Field Terminable RJ45 Plug

24th July 2017

Guaranteed CAT6A Performance in under a minute

Montreal, QC – July 24th, 2017. – Wirewerks, a leading manufacturer of network infrastructure solutions, announced today the launch of their innovative new Field Terminable RJ45 Plug. The new RJ45 Plug combines the performance and reliability advantages of factory-terminated Category 6A plugs with the flexibility and on-site termination benefits of field-installable connectors.

Available in both shielded and unshielded formats, the Wirewerks Field Terminable RJ45 Plug enables fast, reliable on-site termination of UTP and FTP solid-conductor copper cables in the exact lengths required for each individual cable run. Cable pairs are precision terminated on an IDC module within the plug, and the cable itself is secured to the plug by simply closing the plug’s two hinged jaws and locking with the integrated compression nut. The plug is precision engineered to apply the exact pressure necessary to complete a perfect, secure termination every time. No crimping, special tools or special technician training are required and the IDC interface supports both T568A and T568B wiring schemes. The Wirewerks Field Terminable RJ45 Plug is compatible with any RJ45 standard jack or coupler, and cable/plug terminations are guaranteed to meet Category 6A performance specifications, all in under one-minute of installation time.

Edouard Tabet, Wirewerks’ head of Engineering, commented, “Our new field terminable RJ45 plug is beneficial in any application where the required cable length is unknown. The plug also provides a simple, reliable solution for attaching IP-enabled devices to the network, including cameras and more. And the plug’s factory-equivalent terminated performance means that it can be used with complete confidence to solve the problems and delays caused by over/under-length cable runs in pre-terminated cabling systems.”
