Stewart Connector, a Bel group company, has introduced a new series of low profile Mid-Plane RJ45 connectors. The Mid-Plane RJ45 design allows the connector to straddle the board edge and utilise space above and below the printed circuit board compared to traditional RJ45 connectors that are only designed to mount above the printed circuit board.

Equipment designers will gain valuable space and savings in applications where the RJ45 would typically be the tallest component on their printed circuit board by utilising a Mid-Plane RJ45 reducing their product height by up to 25%. The Mid-Plane connectors offer a high-speed solution for a wide array of IoT applications, including servers / switches, video game systems, and portable storage devices.

The Mid-Plane RJ45 connectors support 1 and 2.5G data rates and 100MHz transmission frequencies. These connectors are available in 1×1 and 1×4 configurations, LED options-Yellow/Green and bi-colour, and 0.085in and 0.125in tail lengths, and shielded to enhance EMI performance.

Stewart Connector’s Mid-Plane RJ45 Connectors are in stock with Digi-Key, Heilind, Newark, Mouser, and Farnell in Europe. For detailed product information, fill out the enquiry form on this page.
