Stewart Connector Intros Shielded Modular Plug Series
Modular plugs.
Glen Rock, PA — Stewart Connector, a division of Bel Fuse Inc., has released its new RoHS-compliant SS-39200 Series of Category 6a 8P8C modular plugs. The new parts are the latest addition to the company's broad portfolio of connectors, engineered for use in a range of high-speed networking and computing applications. Notably, the SS-39200 Series' mechanical design is comprised of both a wire aligner and load bar to facilitate consistent twisted pair orientation during plug assembly.

The wire aligner is specially designed with a patent pending "cross talk zone" which introduces a precise amount of cross talk to the plug to allow for centered NEXT (Near End Crosstalk) performance — per IEC 60603-7-51 component requirements and ANSI/TIA-568-B.2-10 transmission performance specifications for 4-pair 100Ω CAT6a cabling.

Due to the design of the wire aligner, cable assemblers are provided with both a visual and mechanical means to rapidly build patch cables that exhibit more reliable performance characteristics than traditional CAT6 or CAT6a plug assemblies. In addition, the plugs' strain relief provides superior cable retention and a 360° shielding contact to enable a one-step termination process. Because of their patented contact design, parts accommodate typical 24 to 27 gauge solid or stranded cable.

This new series of CAT6a 8P8C modular plugs is offered to meet the requirements of commercial building telecommunications applications and is well suited for use in premise wiring, as well as computer networking technologies. Among the most common applications for the connectors are on patch cords used in wiring closets to connect patch panels, hubs, routers, switches and servers.

Plug, load bar and wire aligner are manufactured of UL94-V0 polycarbonate and feature 50 microinches gold-plated contacts for robust, long-lasting connections. Additional specifications include an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C, and durability of 750 matching cycles. Voltage rating is 150VAC, and current rating is 1.5A at 25°C.
