8P8C are used in computer networking & telephone applications, where the plug on each end is an 8P8C modular plug wired according to a TIA/EIA standards. Most wired Ethernet network communications are carried over Category 6 cable with an 8P8C modular plug crimped on each end.
Our premium, gold-plated connector works with solid or stranded wires. Can be used for Category 6 data network cable.
The ITBEBE strain relief relaxes to prevent over-compression of cable pairs, thus allowing peak electrical performance. RJ45 connectors and stress relief are also simple to unlock, making unplugging from jacks and ports less complicated.
Are these simple crimp-on connectors like a standard 5e connector or do you have to load into a wire bar first?
You need to put the core wires into the connector.
Can these be used with solid copper wire (i.e. not stranded)?
Yes, it can be used with solid copper wire. please note the wire OD should be 1.0mm.
These CableCreation RJ45s are all you need. My entire company uses these for work with great success. The quality of the cable you are trying to terminate has a great deal to do with how good of a time you will have. CCA and stranded pairs might give you more trouble because they do not hold shape as well, but honestly I have never come across a cable that gave me so much trouble I could not terminate it. Make sure you use quality cable and you're halfway there. The included strain protectors are a nice feature for tighter runs and gives the cable a more professional look. Seriously don't buy a bucket of 100 RJ45s from a big box hardware store for literally 10x, these will do you great.
Easy to terminate and reliable. I've been using them for years without issues. They also look nice and include the boots for a better fit
The connector’s are fine except my cat 6 cable is two large too fit.
