Copper and fiber-optic cabling-system manufacturer trans data elektronik (tde) recently introduced the tBL-tde Basic Link RJ45 module. The module has a separate cable-termination block, which the company says “can be easily assembled with the tBL crimp tool. By simply plugging it in, the tBL cable termination block is subsequently connected to the tBL RJ45 module.”
tde says the module and block eliminate processing problems during an installation. The termination block is available in two versions—with 22-24 AWG cables (in yellow) and with 26-27 AWG flexible cables (in white). “The IDC connection technology is designed for long-term use and guarantees a stable and vibration-resistant contact,” the company says. tde’s managing director Andre Engel said the technology is meant “for high-available applications and data transfer speed of up to 10 Gigabits in real time.”
Additionally, tde says, the slim termination block is suited for preassembling the cabling section. An assembled system corresponds to a permanent link according to ISO/IEC 11801, and is designed for Category 6A performance, the company adds.
