The ARJ45® is Stewart Connector’s new family of connectors for Category 7 and Category 7a premise wiring systems deployed in 10 Gigabit Ethernet and higher speed data transmission environments. This connector family consists of a cable-mounted plug and a single-port, PCB-mounted jack designed to meet Category 7 performance standards up to 600 MHz as defined by the IEC60603-7-7.
These products will also meet proposed Category 7a specifications, increasing performance requirements up to 1000 MHz. Additionally, the ARJ45 can be used as a high speed connector replacement for closed loop applications currently using less economical connector types.
Stewart Connector’s ARJ45 connector systems provide a competitive advantage in that they are built on the proven reliability of standard RJ45 interface mechanics, which have been enhanced to support increased Category 7a data speeds. In addition, the ARJ45 connectors are interface-compatible with the Nexans' GG45 Category 7 connector system. This makes the ARJ45/GG45 connector system a proven intermatable connector solution for Category 7 and Category 7a that is commercially available today from two independent manufacturing sources.
