It is now easy to field terminate Category 6E (and Cat 5E) Shielded modular plugs with the new QuickTreX plugs.

QuickTreX®, a manufacturer of high quality datacom products, introduces its family of shielded and unshielded 8-pin modular plugs. The family includes the following connectors for use in Category 5 and Category 5E applications, as well as Category 6, Category 6 Enhanced, and Category 6A applications:
Category 5E Modular Plugs with loadbar. Perfect for Category 5 and Category 5E applications.
Category 6 Modular Plugs with loadbar. Perfect for Category 6 and Category 6E applications.
Category 6E (and 5E) Shielded Modular Plugs with loadbar. Will work for any Cat6E or Cat5E cable.
Category 6A Shielded Modular Plugs with loadbar. Will work on Cat6A cable.
Proudly made in the USA of high quality 50 micron gold connecting surfaces, this family of precision modular plugs has a staggered one-up/one-down design for enhanced performance and reduction of crosstalk. Each connector includes a patented loadbar made from a dielectric material that also absorbs more unwanted crosstalk and enhances ease of installation with virtually foolproof results. The fact that they are dual use – for both solid and stranded conductor wire, greatly increases their usage as a single solution.
It is now not only possible, but also easy to field terminate Category 6E (and Category 5E) Shielded modular plugs with the new QuickTreX Category 6E Shielded Modular Plug, which contains a new heavy duty shield and the patented Conductive NEXT Reduction System. The shielding material is heavy duty, to assure solid connections to both the drain wire and also to the shielding connection of the receptacle body. The quality of the shielding virtually eliminates any chance for ANEXT entering the cable.
The Internal Conductive Loading Bar is molded from a material that substantially reduces the effect of NEXT within the Plug Body. The conductors are isolated by plastic that absorbs the NEXT from between the conductors and channels it away so that the Plug can perform to Category 6E levels and above. When assembled onto Category 6E patch cable it will pass all TIA/EIA requirements for NEXT and Return Loss, etc. If done correctly, the patch cable will pass Cat 6E Component level testing. This will help the Category 6 channel maintain increased headroom to assure the network operates at its best.
The Category 6A Shielded Modular Plug can perform to Category 6A levels and above. When assembled onto Category 6A patch cable it will pass all TIA/EIA requirements for NEXT and Return Loss, etc. This will make it possible for the Category 6A channel to maintain increased headroom to assure the network operates at its best.
