R&M Extends its FM45 Portfolio

R&M is updating its FM45 portfolio. Installers can look forward to the following innovations:

  • Cat. 5e unshielded, straight body
  • Cat. 6A unshielded, straight and angled
  • A/B wiring in combination instead of individual versions

The new packaging for the Cat. 5e variant has the installation instructions written on it. No other additional information is necessary.

With the FM45, standard-compliant Cat. 5e and Cat. 6A connections can be established everywhere without the need for any special tools. Termination takes just a minute. Contact is made by means of IDCs. The tin-coated R&M IDCs guarantee gas-tight, vibration-resistant and corrosion-protected wiring with tensile strength and long-term stability.

The field-mountable FM45 connector is not only suitable for office cabling and structured cabling systems. With the FM45, direct connections for devices of the Internet of Things (IoT) can be established and cabling solutions for smart buildings developed. The FM45 supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) and data transmission up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The field-mountable connector from R&M has already proved itself in thousands of installations.
