VERY fine RJ 45 plugs can be fitted easily and cheaply when wired on site in industrial switchgear cabinet environments using the Phoenix Contact mini-patch field FL terminal box that clips directly onto rail connectors. Field cables are simply wired to consecutively numbered screw terminals.
The further connection within the switchgear cabinet to hubs or terminal devices is achieved by short RJ 45 patch cables pre-cut to length and stripped.
The narrow patch field is 25mm wide and is designed for CAT 5 cables (up to 100 Mbit/s). The cable's screen connection is self-contacting to the European standard rail connector. Phoenix Contact 02 9524 4455.
