Belden Introduces Game-Changing RJ45 Connectivity

New REVConnect Connectivity System Provides Unprecedented Reliability, Ease and Versatility

ST. LOUIS--()--Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, announces the upcoming launch of its new REVConnect connectivity system. This system addresses a critical market need for reliable and easy terminations that support IP convergence over a range of applications from wired LAN to wireless access points, high definition displays, security cameras and building automation sensors. REVConnect utilizes a single termination method, using a universal termination core for all Category 5e, Category 6 and Category 6A RJ45 connections. It will be available for purchase through authorized Belden distributors on September 19.

“REV” is an acronym that stands for: Reliable, Easy and Versatile.

  • Reliability is driven by the nature of the connection. REVConnect features a highly reliable termination for a secure, gas-tight connection that is proven to reduce rework at all category levels.
  • Ease is driven by REVConnect’s universal wiring manager, which supports all Cat 5e, Cat 6 and Cat 6A cables, as well as a single tool that covers all steps of the termination process, including cable preparation. These two features combine to provide contractors a 30-60% termination time savings.
  • The same universal core supports the system’s versatility: contractors can terminate a jack or a plug onto the same core interface. This means that field-terminable plugs, which support Cat 6A and high PoE performance, can be terminated just as quickly and easily as a jack.

“The feedback from our installer and consultant communities was tremendous in shaping REVConnect,” states Kristen Poulos, Belden’s VP of Global Marketing. “Beyond pushing the limits of connectivity performance, REVConnect also addresses key needs for an everyday installation: a simple, fast termination for all category cables, including UTP, shielded and Belden’s Bonded-Pair. In addition, with today’s Wave 2 wireless access points, PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) cameras, LED lighting, and sensors, the need for a high-performing, field-terminable plug could not be ignored. We feel that REVConnect is truly a game-changer, supporting the performance and power requirements of today and tomorrow while offering unprecedented time savings and versatility at the jobsite.”

“The core interface of REVConnect is something special, no doubt,” says Poulos. “When people see it, they will see that the eight connectors supported by it today are only just the beginning. This technology paired with Belden’s 10GXS Bonded-Pair cables demonstrates Belden’s commitment to innovation and delivering high performance products that meet the market need.”
