Specialized Products intros RJ-type modular plug connectors

The company's Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6 RJ45 connectors feature factory-polished contacts with 50-mm gold plating.

Specialized Products Company (SPC) has introduced its TrueConect series of RJ-type modular plug connectors. The company's Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6 RJ45 connectors feature factory-polished contacts with 50-mm gold plating, making them suitable for high-speed data transmissions. The company says its modular plugs' proprietary gold deposition technology produces consistent, accurate and ultra smooth contact surfaces for better conductivity, and lower resistant forces for better wear and signal carrying capabilities.

Further, SPC says its TrueConect modular plugs feature three offset insulation displacement points, providing 40% more surface area that is inserted into each conductor at termination. More contact area assures a better connection and better overall conductivity over the long run, notes the company. Also, all TrueConect modular plugs feature both a primary as well as a secondary strain relief design that doubles the cable holding strength of a terminated connector. The durable thermoplastic housings of the TrueConect modular plugs also allow for visual verification of wiring configurations.
