Standard LJ6C modules can be used as part of a cabling system. LJ6C refers to an industry standard for a European module size that measures 21x37mm. The LJ6C RJ45 modules are built to work with UK floor boxes and mount into UK-type faceplates. However, the dimensions of LJ6C modules are different from “Euro-size” modules, which are slightly bigger. Coordinating faceplates can accommodate one or multiple modules. The LJ6C modules are compatible with specific types of cable, such as Category 5e or 6. Modules may be referred to as simply 6c and are made to be compliant with the TIA/EIA standards for a specific cable category. For example, a Cat6 module in a standard 6c size will be used with Cat6 cable. The LJ6C/Euro outlets are coded in accordance with specific wiring schemes, such as T568B or 568A. Industry labelling systems are included in the designs.
Cat5e RJ45 Modules
The Cat5e RJ45 modules are available in a standard European/UK size called LJ6C. RJ45 modules and boxes with shuttered outlets offer flexibility in installation. Vendors commonly test modules to ensure the units meet the specified cable category performance standards, and performance may surpass defined standards. Low profile versions of a Cat6 UTP module in an LJ6C design are options for floor box applications.
Data Modules for Ethernet Applications
Cat5e and Cat6 LJ6C data modules for Ethernet applications are manufactured in a range of styles to support Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. There are slim profiles, angled, and standard formats. Modules that are compliant with Cat5e or Cat6 UTP cable allow several ports to be mounted into a complementary faceplate. LJ6C-size voice modules are also available.
