The RJ point five connector system is the next generation Ethernet link, offering a higher density cabling solution for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who desire a lower cost per port while maintaining the convenience of a single connector per channel.
The port spacing is on a 7mm centerline, occupying half the space than that of traditional RJ45 Ethernet link. In addition to the high density receptacle, Tyco Electronics offers the mating cable assembly, as well as cable management solutions for single box and rack configurations.
The receptacle and cable assembly were redesigned to eliminate the undesirable RJ45 split pair configuration, resulting in heightened electrical performance. Additionally, the latching feature incorporates an easy-to-use lanyard that will facilitate up to 96 ports on a single line card. Due to the density on the receptacle face, the light from the LEDs is transferred out through the cable boot, bringing the port indicator light closer to the end user.
