Mod Jack Connectors

Global Connector Technology offers a standard range of mod jack connectors in RJ45, RJ48, RJ11 and RJ12 configurations.

GCT offer shielded and unshielded, single and multi-port modular jack connectors with a variety of features and configurations including optional LEDs, horizontal and vertical mating styles, thru hole and SMT variants.

We can offer cat5, cat5e & cat6 with and without LED's in single port or multiport (gang jack and stacked jack), please contact us if the mod jack connector you require is not shown in our standard range.

Category

The Category determines the transmission frequency and throughput of the cable / connector. There are 6 variations currently:

  • Category 3 - Introduced in the early 90s, uses a single pair of copper wires, still used in two-line phone configurations. Speeds up to 10Mbps.
  • Category 5 - Superseded Cat 5 in early 2000s for data transmission, uses two pairs of copper wire. Speeds up to 100Mbps.
  • Category 5e - Similar to Cat5 in appearance, uses four pairs of copper wire which are twisted more tightly and shielded to eliminate interference. Speeds up to 1Gbps.
  • Category 6 - Usually used for back-end networking. Speeds up to 10Gbps.
  • Category 6e - An enhanced version of Cat6, Cat6e has better shielding and a higher operating frequency of 750MHz. Speeds of up to 100Gbps.
We currently offer Category 3 connectors.

Mount type options

Termination method of soldering connector onto PCB.

PCB orientation options

Defines the orientation which a connector sits on the PCB. Vertical (straight) is 90° to the PCB, right angle (horizontal) is 180° to the PCB.

Number of positions

The maximum number of potential contacts. The position may not have a contact dependant on whether the position is loaded.

Positions loaded

The number of positions that have a contact available. Positions may be empty dependant on application requirements.

Shielding

Shielding offers protection from EMI interference.

Latch position

The position of the latch, normally at the top or the bottom
