Standard Euro-size RJ45 Modules are single units that support the structured cabling systems for voice and data applications. Modules that are compatible with specific performance specifications are available in standard European-style sizes. The Euro-size standard equates to the dimensions of 50x25mm. This is also known as a standard “Euromod” size.
These dimensions differ from those of the LJ6C size modules. Both voice and UTP cable modules are manufactured in the standard Euro-size. The Euro-size faceplates come in dimensions to accept single, double or quadruple module insertions. So a Euro-size faceplate for dual module insertion will have an aperture measuring 50x50mm. Vendors may offer both the faceplates and modules in one kit for convenience. Module specifications should list the compatible tools for completing terminations. The eight-pin RJ45 connector is a standardised interface which often connects a computer to a local area network (LAN). This type of connector was originally developed for telephone communications but is now used in a range of applications.
Euro-style RJ45 Modules
Euro-style RJ45 modules work with stranded and solid wire. They support a range of environments where numerous connections must be made in a single location. European-style RJ45 cable modules are manufactured to be compliant with industry and professional standards. Colour coding for specific wiring schemes is provided on the cabling modules. Port labelling systems are also incorporated into the designs.
Cat5e or Cat6 UTP Euromod Design
UTP modules in standard European sizes can support both T568A and T568B wiring configurations. A module with a Cat5e or Cat6 Euromod design will normally be tested to ensure it meets or exceeds TIA/EIA standards. Cat5e and Cat6 modules in Euro-sizes will comply with performance specifications for high-speed LANs. Contact Comms Express for additional information on Euro-size and LJ6C module questions.
