RJ Socket Modules & Blanks
RJ (registered jack) socket modules are devices used to act as a jack for different types of connectors, so that they can connect to the registered jack. Registered jacks are a standardised connection most often used in connecting cables to the back of a computer.
What are RJ socket modules used for?
RJ socket modules are designed to allow cables to connect to a registered jack. For example, you might need cat5 cabling to connect to the standardised connection, so you would utilise a socket module.
Types of RJ socket modules
The main way RJ socket modules differ is in the type of cable they are designed to work with, for example cat5, cat6 or cat7. You can find socket modules with a very specific design, depending on their direction, orientation and shield type, as well as being of varying colours and sizes.
Faceplates can also be considered a type of socket module, as can floorboxes and data com models.
