RS POR Shielded RJ45 T-Adapter

The splitter is an easy way to wire two devices to a single RJ45 port by connecting three RJ45 cable assemblies. This might be handy for reducing the number of cables required to run multiple computers to a switch or hub, or simply as a cable coupler extender solution.

The Cat. 5e t-adapter is ideal for ethernet cable applications. Wherever a hardwire network connection is preferred over wi-fi in LAN setups, cat5e cable and connectors are a reliable standard. The adapter works with two 10/100 LAN connections which transmit 10 and 100 Mbps.

The entire adapter measures 17cm in length, with the 8-core cable measuring 15cm. The adapter housing features two holes either side to screw the adapter down for a more permanent installation.

The housing is made from a white PVC and the UTP cable is 24AWG in size.

This RJ45 splitter is shielded, and can be used with screened cables and connectors in environments where EMI interference is a concern.

Many people misunderstand the purpose of an RJ45 adapter, assuming they can run multiple computers to a single modem or hub. This is only partially true. An RJ45 adapter can act as a combiner for multiple computers, but another adapter acting as a splitter or network switch must be used when connecting to a network hub in order for the connection to work effectively. The advantages of the splitter combiner combination mean only having to run one cable, rather than separate cables, which is useful in permanent installations where space-saving and ease of maintenance are a concern.

RJ45 adapters can sometimes work with RJ11 voice-only connections.
