What is an RJ45 connector?
An RJ45 connector is a square shaped connector type mainly used for Ethernet connections. The RJ45 connector is used in Point to Point connections while the earlier systems where based upon coax implementations. Connectors come in many variants and form factors: shielded/unshielded, 10/100Mbps and 1Gbps/10Gbps, Office and industrial grade products, Straight and Angled, IP20 and IP67, Overmolded and Field Installable cable connectors, PCB variants straight and with integrated magnetics.
What is the difference between RJ11 and RJ45?
RJ11 is a smaller 4 contact version of an RJ45 (8 contacts). RJ11 is often used for telephone and telephone headset connections, not used for Ethernet. RJ45 is the main connector standard for Ethernet.
Are cat5 and cat6A connectors the same?
The Ethernet cable performance is related to the Category marking. Cat5 indicates that the cable bandwidth is 125MHz, the cable is supporting Ethernet data rates up to 1Gbps. Cat6A indicates that the cable bandwidth is 500MHz, the cable is supporting Ethernet data rates up to 10Gbps. The Ethernet connector should be rated the same as the cable to ensure the maximum end to end performance of the system.
Which cable uses RJ45 connectors?
2 pair (4 wire) Ethernet Cable is typically used for 10/100Mbps data rates, while 4 pair (8 wire) cable is used for 1/10Gbps data rates. The category rating of the cable should be having the right value to support the required bandwidth and data rates as well.
