QuickTreX® Category 6E (and 5E) Shielded Modular Plugs with Loadbar (Bag of 50)
NOTE: Will work on most Cat 5 and Cat 6. For cables with individual wire thickness with insulation between .037" and .042"
It is now not only possible but also easy to field terminate category 6E (and Category 5E) Shielded modular plugs thanks to the new QuickTreX™ Category 6E Shielded modular plug which contains a new Heavy Duty Shield and the Patented Conductive NEXT Reduction System. The shielding material is heavy duty to assure solid connections to both the drain wire and also to the shielding connection of the receptacle body. The quality of the shielding virtually eliminates any chance for ANEXT entering the cable. The Internal Conductive Loading Bar is molded from a material that substantially reduces the affect of NEXT within the Plug Body. The conductors are isolated by plastic that absorbs the NEXT from between the conductors and channels it away so that the Plug can perform to Category 6E levels and above. When assembled onto Category 6E patch cable it will pass all TIA/EIA requirements for NEXT and Return Loss, etc.. If done correctly, your patch cable will pass Cat 6E Component level testing! This will help your Category 6 channel maintain increased headroom to assure your network operates at its best.
PLEASE NOTE: In the process of designing a Shielded plug for Category 5E cabling, it was realized that a heavy duty shield was needed there also (as for Cat 6E) to assure a good shielding connection. Our engineers decided to use the same shielding metal material for the Cat 5E plugs (as the Cat 6E). Since the Shielding material is the most costly of all of the components, it was decided that it would be much more efficient and cost effective to offer the same Cat 6E Shielded plug to be used on Category 5E systems as well as Cat 6E. This will in effect add more headroom and robust performance to Cat 5E Cabling at no additional cost.
