TE Connectivity has announced the release of the low-power Pivot Power RJ45 connector, which couples contacts to provide two power connections through an industry-standard RJ45 interface.
The pivot power RJ45 connector couples positions 1, 3, 5 and 7 to one 18AWG wire, and positions 2, 4, 6 and 8 to a second 18AWG wire with a simple and quick pivoting termination of both wires at the same time. This use of dual-conductor AWG cables is less costly than the conventional 8-conductor Category 5 data cables commonly required by other RJ45 connection systems.
Designed for plenum installation in lighting applications and security systems, the Pivot Power RJ45 can be installed in air handling spaces when used with suitably rated wire.
It features moulded-in polarity and strip-length guides to aid the installer and to help ensure proper and repeatable installation.
An integral cable strain relief mechanism secures and retains the cable jacket, isolating the electrical termination. Available in two colour-coded versions for European and North American wire styles, the pivot power RJ45 is UL and cUL listed for field termination.
