This shielded Cat6 coupler lets you connect two Cat5e/6 patch cables for Gigabit Ethernet networks or digital signage in outdoor applications and other areas where protection from harsh elements is essential. It inserts into an industrial-grade wall plate or surface-mount box to create a watertight seal. An included dust cap protects the shielded RJ45 coupler from dust, debris and moisture when not in use.
IP68 Rating Denotes Resistance to Dust and Water
The IP68 rating means the RJ45 bulkhead coupler is not only 100% protected against dust, but also able to endure immersion in 1.5 meters of water for up to 60 minutes with no damage or decline in performance, making the kit ideal for basement applications. For applications that require IP68 protection, use the bulkhead coupler with a Tripp Lite N206-SB01-IND surface-mount box and N206-Series Cat6 patch cabling. If only IP44 protection against splashing water from all directions is required, pair the bulkhead coupler with the N206-Series cable and an N206-FP01-IND, N206-FP02-IND or N206-FP04-IND metal wall plate (all sold separately).
Heavy Shielding Protects Your Network Data from Destructive Line Noise
The Cat6 coupler is shielded to fight against EMI/RFI line noise that interferes with your Ethernet or audio/video signal and can distort or destroy data. Electromagnetic interference and radio frequency interference can be created by electric motors, power cables, welding equipment and other heavy machinery frequently found in industrial applications.
TAA-Compliant for GSA Schedule Purchases
The N206-BC01-IND is compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA), which makes it eligible for GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule and other federal procurement contracts.
The N206-BC01-IND is backed by a lifetime warranty, ensuring reliability and performance.
