The NEW IDEAL Feed-Thru RJ45 modular plug connector is the first feed-thru style connector and tool solution to offer a flush cut of the excess conductor to the face of the modular plug. A patent pending design enables conductors to be cut flush with the end face of the connector when used with the FT-45™ tool (30-495). The flush cut eliminates inadvertent contact among adjacent conductors or with the mating jack. Conductor spacing is maintained for reliable performance in PoE and data applications.
A feed-thru RJ45 has several additional advantages and improvements to traditional closed end modular plugs in assembly and termination:
