Using EZ RJ45 Connectors with PoE

Some RJ45 ports are a tight fit and the end of the connector can be pushed hard against the back of the port. In most instances this is not a problem, but because of the way the EZ RJ45 system works, it is possible that this can physically affect conductor spacing causing shorting with PoE and possible RFI/EMI issues.

Our recommendation in these circumstances is to slightly modify the way the connector is crimped. Prepare the conductors as usual, insert the conductors into the connector and push home as far as possible in the normal way. Ensure that there is plenty of jacket inserted. Then, using a good side cutter, (our part number 450128, for instance) trim the conductors flush with the connector. Pull back the conductors very slightly so that the ends are concealed within the connector, then crimp as normal with the crimp tool.

EZ RJ45 Connectors and Tools

EZ RJ45 Connectors

The EZ RJ45 crimping system comprises patented connectors and tools to make crimping easy.

The EZ RJ45slide connectors have holes at the end that the inner cores of your CAT5 or CAT6 cable pass right though. This means that the cable colours can be checked to ensure that they are in the correct order before the connector is crimped. This results in faster terminations, more reliable connections and less waste.

Introducing the EZ RJ45 Termination System

Find out how EZ RJ45 can help you terminate Cat5 and Cat6 cables

 ez rj45 crimp sequence

The EZ RJ45 system has been designed to make terminations fast, easy and reliable. EZ RJ45 allows you to push the conductors all the way through the connector so you can check the colour sequence before crimping, saving time and reducing waste.  The special crimp tool trims the ends and securely crimps the connector to the cable in one simple operation.
