Compact RJ45 F/F coupler eases 10G Cat 6A connectivity

May 23, 2019
R&M's female-to-female RJ45 coupler supports PoE up to a performance level of 90 Watts (4PPoE) in compliance with IEEE 802.3bt.

Swiss cabling provider R&M (Reichle & De-Massari) has extended connectivity options for high-performance LAN cabling with the launch of its new RJ45 female-to-female coupler. The company says its "RJ45 coupler Cat. 6A /s supports the fastest data transmission office and building networks with structured copper cabling can achieve today. It enables fully viable network operation with 10 Gigabit/s Ethernet," adds a company media release.

R&M says the coupler is suitable for all typical applications in local data networks and, in addition, for operating Power over Ethernet (PoE) links. "With a short design of 27 mm, this is the most compact RJ45 coupler on the market," claims the manufacturer. "Thanks to [its] special design, the coupler, made of diecast aluminum, fits in all patch panels, outlets and distribution boxes in the R&M range for copper cabling. It is simple to click into sockets with a Direct Attached (DA) interface. This contributes to miniaturization and supports top packing densities."

Within its product range, R&M also offers keystone, No. 1 and snap-in adapters for platforms with other interfaces. "This means the Cat. 6A /s coupler can be combined with virtually every RJ45 holder and used everywhere," notes R&M.

Per the company: "The Cat. 6A /s coupler fulfills the requirements of the Class EA Channel and Permanent Link in compliance with the ISO/IEC 11801 standard. The RJ45 coupler supports PoE together with R&MPowerSafe patch cords up to a performance level of 90 Watts (4PPoE) in compliance with IEEE802.3bt.  

"RJ45 couplers are used to connect patch cords with one another. This results in a number of different possibilities [for enabling technicians] to extend or adapt cabling links on office floors...with an additional patch cord without elaborate installation work.  

"The coupler is also ideal for doing away with special CP cables with a plug and a jack at the ends in consolidation points and cross-connects. These connections can be created quickly and flexibly with couplers and patch cords using the plug & play procedure."  

R&M's media release concludes, "Connections of network components with a rear output interface can be mirrored to the cabinet front simply with couplers. Using the RJ45 coupler in connection with a patch cord is a good idea wherever a jack cannot be connected or would not make any sense."
