The IDEAL family of Feed-Thru products has expanded to include two new modular plugconnectors. Available in a shielded or unshielded model, these single piece 8P8C RJ-45connectors are designed to work with cable conductors ranging from 22 to 24 AWG solidwith an overall diameter of 0.040” - 0.048” per conductor. The single piece Feed-Thrudesignsimplifies the challenges faced when assembling and terminating twisted pair cables with larger diameter conductors, over 0.041”, when use of a standard in-line connector is not an option.
A unique staggered conductor hole layout and multi-length contact pins are incorporatedto accommodate the larger conductors. The single-piece housing design helps to funnelthe conductors through the connector and out of the Feed-Thru end. No precision lengthtrimming, load bars or multi-piece assemblies are required. The connectors are thenterminatedwith the FT-45 Modular Plug Crimp Tool. The FT 45 Crimp Tool does notrequire any adjustments or blade changes to use these connectors.
