Ethernet connector: RJ45

The connection to the Ethernet is done with an encapsulated IP67 RJ45 connector (Western plug).

Assembly

Preparation of the cable

  • push the cable gland and the connector case onto the cable.
  • strip 30mm of the insulation from the cable.
  • cut the shield mesh to 8mm and pull it back over the cable mantle.
  • remove all other filling materials, shield strands, plastic wires etc..

Ethernet connector: RJ45 2:

 

  • align the single wires acc. to the pin assignment next to each other.
  • cut the wires angular to ease the feed into the inlet guide(ca.45°).

Assembly of the connector

  • feed the wires into the inlet guide according the pinning.
  • pull the guide over the wires until the cut-out reaches the cable mantle. 
  • check if all wires are in the correct position.
  • cut the wires rectangular to 5mm.

  • pull the guide back to the end of the cable until only 1mm stays over.

Ethernet connector: RJ45 5:

 

  • push the cable from the backside into the RJ45 connector with the guide . If the cable will not fit into the RJ45 due to its thickness, you can use an edgeless  tool to flatten it to feed it into the connector.
  • Crimp the cable, when the guide is in its stop position.
