Excel intros 'FAST' RJ45 plugs

Aug. 17, 2020

Excel, a UK-based provider of copper and optical fiber cabling infrastructure and a Mayflex company, announced the availability of its "FAST" product range of unscreened RJ45 field terminated plugs, boots and tools. 

Particularly designed for ease of use, the FAST solution plugs are compatible with both Category 5e and 6 cables and can be purchased with or without blade-style, high-density, transparent strain relief boots.

Fast and easy installation is achieved thanks to the push-through design of the plug's body, as well as in the use of a single tool to: terminate the plug; position the boot when used; and trim excess wires. 

Ross McLetchie, Mayflex sales director, comments, “The introduction of the FAST range is a useful addition to the Excel offering. We are acutely aware of the pressures our customers face on time, and that time is very clearly money when it comes to installation processes. This introduction follows on from multiple examples of products within our range that save on time but don’t compromise on quality or performance.” 

The FAST product range will replace the current ‘standard’ unscreened RJ45 plugs offered by Excel. Stock is available now with products supplied in plastic-free packs of 100 plugs only, or 100 plugs with boots; tools are available to purchase separately. 

McLetchie concludes, “The fast and easy elements of the design are due to the pass through plug, which allows prepared cores to be pushed through the face of the plug before being crimped and trimmed -- compared to the conventional design where core lengths have to be cut to length before entering the plug body. It’s great to see this new product being included in our plastic free packaging series from the start, and I am sure it will become a de facto tool bag and van stock item for anyone terminating cable on site for use in IoT and device connection.”
