EtherCon for Cat6 cable
« on: February 14, 2021, 05:27:39 pm »

Remind me - which EtherCons are the ones to buy for CAT6?
I remember someone saying that there was one model to avoid because they didn't mate with other "standard" (Cat5e?) EtherCons?
And which are the ones that can be installed on a cable that already has an RJ45 installed (has a split boot or some such)

Is the NE8MX-B ok for CAT6? (Not CAT6a)

Correct.  The Neutrik CAT6 version (NE8MC6-MO) will only mate with the corresponding NE8FDY-C6 panel mount connector - not with Ethercon CAT5E or Ethercon CAT6A chassis connectors.

Since that connector is for CAT6A cable/spec, it should work just fine for CAT6 as it is not a stringent a spec.  But there is a note about insulation diameter of the cable on the product page that may apply to you (or not).
