What is the modular plug?

ModularPlug, or RJ (RegisteredJacks)connectors, are the type of electrical connector commonly used in LAN, telecommunications, and computer networking.

There are several types of modular plugs, each designed for specific applications. Here are the most widely used types:

RJ45 (8P8C): One of the most common modular plugs used for Ethernet connections in computer networks. It has eight positions and eight contacts (8P8C).

This one is the most popular type in the market now.

RJ11 (6P4C/6P2C): Used for telephone connections, the RJ11 plug has six positions and either four or two contacts (6P4C or 6P2C). It is smaller than an RJ45 connector.

RJ12 (6P6C): Similar in size to the RJ11 plug, the RJ12 plug has six positions and six contacts (6P6C). It is also used for telephone connections and can sometimes be found in networking applications.

Which type of the modular plug or RJ connector is the most popular type?

RJ45 is the most widely used. Upon examining the termination of the Ethernet cable attached to the RJ45 connector, we observed eight wires, comprising four solid-colored and four striped-colored wires. The categorization of RJ45 connectors are determined by their wiring standards, with examples such as Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 7.

Selecting the Correct RJ45 Connector

Selecting the correct RJ45 connector (8P8C) for your Ethernet data cable depends entirely on the type and construction of the cable to be run. Technically, Category has nothing to do with it. It is all about fitment.

To ensure the correct selection of an RJ45 connector for your Ethernet cable, consider the following #1, #2, #3:

1 Checking below importing data of the Ethernet Cable(CAT8, CAT7, CAT6A, CAT6, CAT5E):

  • OD of Out Jacket: Measure the overall diameter of the Ethernet cable, typically expressed in millimeters (mm). 
  • OD of Insulation: Determine the diameter of the insulation,
  • Conductor Type: Solid or stranded conductors?
  • OD of Conductor: Know the copper conductors’ American Wire Gauge (AWG). (23AWG-26AWG)
  • Shielded or Unshielded: Check whether the cable is with Al/PET foil braiding or not.
  • Pay attention to the red part of the demo.

2 Confirm key points of the RJ45 Connector:

  • Close End (Regular) Plug or Pass Through (EZ) Plug?
Regular RJ45 connectors can also be called non-passthrough RJ45 connectors, usually referred to as 8P8C modular plugs. Pass-through RJ45 connectors allow the network cable wires to pass out of the connector body. Compared to Regular RJ45 connectors, pass-through RJ45 connectors are easy to keep Ethernet cable wires are aligned before terminating connectors.

  • Single-piece or Two-piece RJ45 Connectors?
In contrast to single-piece RJ45 connectors, two-piece RJ45 connectors feature an additional load bar designed to facilitate the alignment of eight wires, streamlining the wiring process for convenience and speed. Furthermore, the load bar serves the dual purpose of enhancing the resistance of RJ45 connectors to interference.

  • Gold Plating Thickness of RJ45 Plugs
The gold plating thickness on RJ45 plugs, commonly used in networking for Ethernet cables, is essential in determining the connector’s durability and performance. The thickness of the gold plating is usually measured in microinches (μin) and varies based on the quality and intended use of the plug. Here are the typical ranges:
 
Standard Residential or Office Use: The gold plating might be around Fu to 6 μin for general, less intensive use. This level is adequate for environments where the connector isn’t frequently plugged and unplugged.

Commercial or Industrial Use: For more frequent handling, such as in commercial or industrial settings, a thickness of 15 to 30 μin is more common. This increased thickness provides better wear resistance and maintains a good connection over time.

High-Performance Environments: In environments with frequent plugging and unplugging, such as data centers or server rooms, the gold plating can be as thick as 50 μin or more. This high level of plating ensures the best durability and a consistent, high-quality connection.

The purpose of the gold plating is to prevent corrosion and maintain a reliable electrical connection. It’s important to note that thicker gold plating typically means a higher cost, so the chosen thickness often reflects a balance between desired performance and budget constraints.

 
  • The gold plating thickness of our copper alloy prong Pins can be customized from flash microinches to 50 microinches. Before gold plating, we plate a layer of nickel, which is often applied to the substrate (the base material such as brass or phosphor bronze) as a backing to improve the overall wear resistance and reduce pores in the gold.
