RJ45 feed-through ends

Sat Mar 02, 2019 12:31 pm

Any plans to offer a feed-through version? I don't know if they are protected by patent and so would need to be licensed.

I recently purchased the feed-through crimper and should mention that it was not for the ease of crimping as I have no problem to do it the old school way. The reason was more to have the cable jacket compressed rather than stretched.

When crimping old-school, I pull outward on the wires to compress the jacket and then keep pressure on the jacket to keep the wires from pulling back in while inserting/crimping. I figure with the feed-through, I can have more compression on the jacket although I'm not sure I really need to since I very seldom have a jacket pull out.

Also, ISTR past discussions on the contacts being IPC and not IDC. IPC being the two points that pierce versus IDC being three fingers that displace. I have a strong preference for 3 finger IDC.

Looks like Ideal is going after Platinum in this regard.

BTW, I have the Ideal crimper.
