PowerCat 6A Tool-less shielded Keystone Jack, RJ45, 360°, 568A/B


Part No: KSJ-00079

Region: global

Molex PowerCat 6A Tool-less Shielded Keystone Jack is designed for support of installations requiring Keystone Jack apertures specifically in work area applications. The jack is also compatible with Molex range of Keystone Jack Patch Panels.

The PowerCat 6A Shielded Keystone jack offers superior alien crosstalk suppression, excellent insertion loss, and provides enhanced electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection by utilizing robust die cast zinc alloy jack body housing. The shielded jack is dual colour coded for either 568A or 568B wiring schedules. The toolless design allows for on-site installation without the need for a termination tool. The PowerCat 6A Shielded Keystone Jack was specifically designed for highspeed 10GB data transmission. The jack is also backwards compatible with Shielded C6 and C5e systems. Our PowerCat 6A shielded system is suitable for the most demanding PoE applications.
