Field-Mountable RJ45 Connector in Metal Housing

Field-Mountable RJ45 Connector in Metal Housing

R&M, the globally active developer and provider of high-end infrastructure solutions for data and communications networks based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is expanding the range of field-mountable FM45 connectors. The development team in Wetzikon has designed a new variant with a die-cast zinc housing. The all-new all-metal FM45 is being launched as a Cat. 6A type. It is equipped with EL quick mounting technology and IDC wiring from R&M.

R&M is expanding the family of field-mountable RJ45 connectors with a full-metal version. The FM45 Cat. 6A EL with die-cast zinc housing is particularly suitable for the construction of LAN infrastructures, even in harsh environments.

The latest field-mountable RJ45 connector in metal housing ensures stable data transmission under adverse conditions. These include harsh industrial environments, rooms exposed to electromagnetic pollution, IoT connections in halls and functional buildings or outdoors. It is also suitable for continuous Power over Ethernet (PoE) operation with maximum performance. The new FM45 in metal housing bears the R&M PowerSafe seal as proof of guaranteed PoE suitability.

R&M has once again shortened the straight version of the FM45 housing. It’s only 46 millimeters long. The FM45 Cat. 6A EL is therefore also suitable for confined connection situations.

Intuitive and error-free termination
R&M provides two straight and one angled versions with the same wiring technology. The FM45 supports conventional cable diameters of five to nine millimeters.

Installers do not need any special tools for wiring with stranded wire or wire with cross-sections from AWG22 to AWG26. Termination is incredibly easy and only takes one to two minutes. It can be executed intuitively and flawlessly right from the start.

FM45 connectors simplify the construction of LAN infrastructures with flexible cable routing. With FM45, patch cords of any length can be terminated on-site. The field-mountable connectors serve as practical helpers for servicing, maintaining, and repairing local data networks. In addition, the FM45 connectors can be rewired several times over.
