New Locking CAT6 Keystone Jacks, Inline Couplers, & Surface Mount Boxes

RJ45 connectors are largely effective for quickly growing networks and populating subnets for new classrooms, business sections, or whatever the environment. They make things easy in connecting Wi-Fi access points, and in addition are essential for constructing server networks.

After the initial install and testing process, however, you may come up against problems. Connections may loosen from repeated servicing or device replacement. Once you begin the task of hunting down network device problems, things can become frustrating and very time consuming.

Luckily, there is a way of eliminating this annoying problem.

With this in mind, we would like to introduce VPI's new range of Cat6 products, which all provide a far higher level of security for your RJ45 connections.

Use VPI’s Cat6 Shielded Vertical Keystone Jack with Lock, for instance, to firmly secure RJ45 connections. This fully shielded Keystone Jack is compatible with Gigabit Ethernet and prevents CAT6 cables from being accidentally or intentionally inserted or removed. A non-shielded version is also available.

VPI have also designed the new CAT6 RJ45 Inline Coupler with Locking Mechanism, which will provide you with a secure RJ45 connection. Available as shielded and non-shielded.

Finally, you can use the CAT6 Shielded Lock Surface Mount Box to mount up to two CAT6 cables and secure RJ45 connections, again with the lock function. This is also, of course, available as a non-shielded version.

The new RJ45 security key is fully compatible with all these products. It is designed to easily unlock the connected Cat6 cable from the secured keystone jack, coupler, and surface mount box.

With VPI, you can rest assured that you have "total lockdown" on your ethernet network!
