View Full Version : RJ45 inline jack?

01-05-2015, 11:15 AM
I'm sure I saw a picture of someone putting an RJ45 jack in the PVC housing that contains a DirkCheapSSR.

How does this work? I can't find any part that would work great for that.

A sealed RJ45 jack on a short cable that can be soldered to the DirkCheapSSR would be the ideal. Does such a thing exist? It's not like you can take a cat5 'extension cord' and cut it in half.

Otherwise, what are my best options? Using an RJ45 plug and a coupler, or alternatively a wall mounted jack like a Leviton Quickport?

I posted an idea a couple of years ago that integrates a right angle RJ45 jack in the PVC enclosure for Dirk's Cheap SSR's - See post #35 at http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/showthread.php?22657-Enclouser-Ideas-for-DirkCheapSSR/page4

Let me know if you have any questions. These have worked great for the past 2 seasons.

I have seen the rj45 mounted in the bottom of a ta200 also but it would be hard to weather proof depending on your climate. With the snow and rain we get I didn't take a close look at it. Very clean install that won't work here.

I've been using these for years. They are a weatherproof bulkhead mount cat5 jack on a pigtail.
