TE’s next-generation Ethernet link, the RJ point five connector, offers higher density cabling solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who desire a competitive, total cost of ownership per port — while maintaining the granularity of a single connector per channel. The port spacing is on a 7mm centerline, occupying half the space of a traditional RJ45 Ethernet link. In addition to the high density receptacle, TE offers the mating cable assembly along with cable management solutions for single-box and rack configurations. The receptacle and cable assembly were redesigned to eliminate the undesirable RJ45 split-pair configuration, which leads to heightened electrical performance. Additionally, the latching feature incorporates an easy-to-use lanyard that facilitates 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.
