Taicom adds RJ style connectors with integrated indicator LED’s


The latest additions to Taicom’s range of RJ connectors are two right angle 8 way 8 pin (RJ45 style) shielded connectors, which incorporate yellow and green LED indicators.

The two new parts consist of a single way RJ45 socket and a Quad ganged (four way) socket, already popular in network peripherals such as LAN hubs and network switches. These connectors are also suited to other applications where high-speed data transfer is required with a visual indication of network activity; this indication being useful for diagnostic purposes. The two indicator LED’s are fully integrated into the RJ connector assembly and can be driven independently via the end user’s connecting circuit.

Like all Taicom connectors these two new additions are manufactured to very high standards using only high quality materials. They feature electrical ratings of 1A, 125Vdc with gold plated contacts for low contact resistance (30m Ohm max). Black insulators are flame retardant to UL94V-0.

The extra parts complement the already extensive range of RJ style connectors available from Taicom. In fact the range now consists of 16 cable mount plugs compatible for use with Cat 5 cable and 19 PCB mount sockets in various formats, all FCC-68 compatible.

RJ connectors are commonly found in Telecom equipment, such as telephones and modems. They are also used widely in network equipment. Most of today’s computer networks based on 10/100 base T Ethernet use this type of connector, however, the connectors have also found wider uses in applications such as automotive, medical systems and remotely programmed electronic equipment. Much of the RJ style connector’s popularity is due to its compact size, high data rate capability and low cost. The Taicom series meets all these criteria whilst maintaining high quality standards and offering many options.

With plugs ranging from 4 way through to 10 way in a wide choice of contact configurations, including the very commonly used RJ11, RJ12 and RJ45 connectors, they are available in 2 versions for use with flat or round cable depending on individual requirement. The popular 8 way 8 pin (RJ45) and the 10 way 10 pin plugs are also available in a shielded version for applications requiring high data rates or where susceptibility to noise from nearby sources needs to be controlled.

Furthermore, the FCC-68 compatible PCB sockets are now supplied in four styles: vertical, horizontal, horizontal shielded and horizontal shielded with indicator LED’s. The vertical sockets are available in 4 to 10 way with different pin configurations loaded. The right angle versions provide a choice of low profile (black body) 6 to 10 way for applications with space restraints, or standard profile body (grey) in 4 to 6 way. The fully shielded versions complete the range in 6, 8 and 10 way, with LED indicator types described above, again suitable for applications where data speed is paramount or noise is a problem.
