The EZ-RJ45 fully shielded plug, with an internal ground, combines the speed and reliability advantage exclusive to the EZ-RJ45 system with the performance advantage inherent to shielded products. This connector is suitable for both CAT5 and CAT6 applications.
The jacket can be inserted all the way into the connector to ensure compliance with the CAT6 specification, while the CAT5 specification is slightly more relaxed and compliance can be achieved by inserting the jacket just ahead of the clamp, see 'Working with shielded connectors' in the documents tab. This pdf also details some specifications regarding the cable sizes that can be used with these connectors, e.g. the maximum outer diameter of the cable is 6.6mm and the maximum outer diameter of each conductor is 1mm.
Always use the CAT6 strain relief boots with this connector, whether using CAT5 or CAT6 cable.
The EZ RJ45 System
The EZ RJ45 system simplifies twisted pair terminations by allowing the wires to be inserted all the way through the ez connector and out the front. This allows the technician to easily verify the proper wiring order prior to crimping, saving time and reducing waste.Electrical performance of the termination is optimized by pulling the ez rj45 connector down over the cable jacket and seating it tightly in the rear of the connector. Reducing the distance between the wire twists and contacts improves the performance of the EZ RJ45 connectors.
