L -com Expands Its Shielded Modular Line with A Shielded Side -Exit Cat5e Jack

NORTH ANDOVER, MA, - - November 20th, 2009 - - L -com Global Connectivity has released a new modular jack, this one a "side exit" model that includes shielding and maintains Category 5e rating.

The jack is perfect for installation in tight spaces, where RFI/EMI is a problem and Category 5e performance is critical. This often includes factories, power stations, labs and military installations.

The jack comes complete with color coding for EIA/TIA 568A and B wiring, a wire guard, and a solderable shield box. The front of the jack is keystone style for easy snap -in to the wall plate or panel. The 180 -degree termination allows for cable entry from the side, saving space in tight fit applications.

"We're very excited about the release of this product," said Peter McNeil, Product Manager for the Modular line. "It culminates both the space saving side exit structure that our customers have been asking for, and the shielded protection that they need."

L -com plans to stock the parts for same day shipment in early December, 2009. Advanced orders can be taken at any time.
