Harting has launched the RJ45 Cat 7a connectors, offering tool-free termination for 10-Gigabit Ethernet cabling in broadcast studio installations.

The RJ Industrial 10G is the latest version of a tool-free termination RJ45 connector compatible with 10-Gigabit Ethernet applications, enabling easy field installation and maintenance.

These connectors are said to be ideally suited for use in broadcast studio post-production data centre installations, allowing high-speed data transfer over copper rather than more expensive fibre-optic links.

The connection is made reliably and quickly by hand using proven insulation displacement terminal technology.

The insulation displacement terminals are designed for rigid and flexible stranded conductors for a range of wire cross-sections.

Harting supplies STP Cat 7a cable, transmission performance up to 1,300MHz according to IEEE802.3an.

The cable is fixed in place in the connector with a robust cable gland providing a high retention force.

Other manufacturers’ cables with jacket diameters from 4.5mm up to 9mm can be accommodated.

With its compact design, the rugged, industry standard IP 20 model is also compatible for mating with multiport ‘harmonica’-style RJ 45 jacks.

Each connector has an available slot for colour-coding keys to improve cable management.
