lightingman117 Posted December 8, 2022 Share Posted December 8, 2022 (edited) TL;DR Is there a better RJ45 replacement than the TE unit? --- I have a number of CTB16PC V1s & V2s with failing RJ45's I found in the forums the replacement RJ45 (Mouser PN: 571-5556416-1) Is this really the best solution? I'm slowly going through the mouser catalog trying to find something that is a bit better than 'Board Lock' mounting style. I know I could send them back to LOR, but I can solder... I'm more interested in a connector that's a little bit more full-proof. I did order some of the RJ45 waterproof extensions so that after replacement the wear location will be the coupler located on housing bulkhead. --- For temporary solution I've been using T-taps (3x female RJ45's and a short jumper to one of the functioning RJ45's. I know LOR frowns on splitting the RS485 signal, but I've gotten away with this multiple times and with splits ranging from 20-100+ft in each direction. All at the standard 57k tho.
