Standard LJ6C modules can be used as part of acabling 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 labeling 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
are manufactured in a range of styles to support
Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. There are slim profile,
angled, and standard formats. Modules that are compliant with Cat 5e or Cat6
UTP cable allow several ports to be mounted into a complementary faceplate.
LJ6C-size voice modules are also available.
