From RS PRO, this 8-pin RJ45 modular connector is a high-quality solution to PCB network cable connections. The plug terminates easily to a stranded cable to make data cable assemblies for ethernet connectivity.
The connector is unshielded, and so should not be used in environments where EMI interference is a concern. RJ45 connectors are a standardised network interface for ethernet connections and are often used in LAN (Local Area Network) setups with UTP cabling. This modular plug is used to construct RJ45 ethernet cable assemblies, to connect devices or projects to a network. It is commonly employed where a hardwired network connection is necessary, or in server racks.
