Product Details

Simply45® is the industry-leading brand for RJ45 modular plug innovation and performance solutions. Our S45-1601 is the same as our S45-1600 except is packaged in a convenient 50-piece plastic clamshell.

The Simply45® S45-1601 pass-through RJ45 modular plugs incorporate the following features:

Single Piece Design. The S45-1601 is a single-piece unshielded pass-through RJ45 modular plug for use with unshielded LAN cables. No-load bar is required. Supports performance standards: ANSI/TIA 568.2-D for Cat6; ISO/IEC 11801 Class E.

3 Prong Pin Design with 50µ of True 24ct Gold Plating. All Simply45® pass-through RJ45 modular plugs use only 50µ 24ct gold plated 3-Prong pin design instead of a 2-Prong design as found on most other pass-through RJ45 modular plugs.  A 3-Prong pin provides 3 points of contact with the copper wire conductor instead of 2. This improves electrical performance and signal integrity. A 3-prong pin also holds stronger onto the wire conductors.  To learn more about why we only use 3-Prong pins and 50µ 24ct gold-plated contacts, please click here.

Solid and Stranded LAN Cables. The S45-1601 is ideal for most Cat6 UTP (unshielded twisted pair) solid 23 AWG LAN cables with a maximum cable diameter of 7.0mm (0.276”).  The S45-1601 also works great with stranded unshielded LAN cables such as those used on patch cords/leads. Our part S45-1500 works with most stranded unshielded Cat5e and Cat6 LAN cables, but if your stranded LAN cable has a thicker outer jacket or larger cable OD commonly found on PUR jackets, then either our S45-1601 or S45-1700 may be the right solution for you.

Straight-Line Wire Insert. LAN cable wire conductors are easily inserted in a straight-line arrangement out through the front of the RJ45 pass-through modular plug. The S45-1601 accommodates 23-24 AWG Solid and 28-26 AWG stranded LAN cable wire conductor sizes 0.95mm – 1.05mm (0.037” – 0.041”). For larger UTP wire conductor sizes, please refer to our Staggered Hi/Lo wire alignment found on the Simply45® part S45-1700 or S45-1700P.

Improved Crosstalk Performance. The unique internal design of the S45-1601 pass-through RJ45 modular plug allows the LAN cable to be inserted further into the plug. This reduces the length of untwisted wires improving NEXT performance.  The S45-1601 accommodates most Cat6 LAN cables. If your LAN cable has a larger wire conductor OD than the typical Cat6, we recommend using our part S45-1700 or S45-1700P pass-through RJ45 modular plugs.

Commercial Rated. These RJ45 mod plugs are UL94 V0 (IEC 60695-11-10) rated for all commercial installations. These RJ45 mod plugs are recommended for CMP Plenum, CMR, CM; and LSZH up to B2ca rated LAN cables.

Color Tinted RJ45 Modular Plugs. The S45-1601 comes with a light green tint for easy pass-through RJ45 modular plug identification. No more trouble identifying which plug is which. All Simply45® RJ45 modular plugs are color-coded for easy identification.

Convenient Plastic Clamshell. The S45-1601 comes in a convenient 50pc plastic clamshell. This is no ordinary clamshell. Simply45® only uses quality packaging to support the rigors of the real world. This clamshell is sturdy and after using all the plugs, it can be repurposed for other needs in the installer’s kit.

UL Listed. The S45-1601 pass-through RJ45 modular plugs are UL Listed and bear the UL Logo on the Simply45® packaging.  Only Simply45® provides the UL Listed logo for quality and safety on pass-through RJ45 modular plugs. UL is the strictest 3rd party verification service in the world and products bearing the UL mark represent the highest quality and safety standards.

PoE/PoH Rated. The S45-1601 is ideal for PoE/PoH applications. The S45-1601 uses the correct 3-Prong Pin design; true 24ct gold plated pins and is made using the highest quality materials for RJ45 modular plugs. This all ensures lower resistance and less heat build-up than cheaper-made RJ45 that are out on the market.

Compliant with Industry Standards. ANSI/TIA 568.2-D Class E, 1096-A; ISO/IEC 11801 Class E, 60603-7, 8877:1992; FCC
