Modular Connector Adapters

This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the Modular Connector Adapters category on DigiKey.com

Modular Connector Adapters are used to convert from one Modular Connector style to Modular style whether it is mounted by Flange, Brackets, Front side nut, Rear side nut, or Panel mount. Examples include Jacks 4p4c (RJ9, RJ10, RJ22), 6p4c (RJ11, RJ14), 6p6c (RJ11), 8p8c (RJ45), 10p8c, Plugs 4p4c (RJ9, RJ10, RJ22), 6p4c (RJ11, RJ14), 6p6c (RJ11), 8p8c (RJ45), or PCB. Ratings include Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6e.


SelectionCharacteristics

Convert From (Adapter End): Indicates the style and configuration of the connector being converted from.

Convert To (Adapter End): Indicates the style and configuration of the connector being converted to.

Type: Indicates the function for which the adapter was designed.

Features: These are different capabilities or properties of the device such as keying, having a cover, or having a backshell.

Ingress Protection: IP (Ingress Protection) ratings such as (IP20, IP65, IP67, etc.) define how likely water and dirt will get into the system. The first number represents dirt and solid contaminants while the second represents water and liquids.

IP Ratings
Solids Liquids
1 Protected against solids larger than 50mm. Protected against vertically falling drops of water. Limited Ingress permitted.
2 Protected against solids larger than 12.5mm. Protected against vertically falling drops of water with the enclosure tilted up to 15 degrees from vertical. Limited ingress permitted.
3 Protected against solids larger than 2.5mm. Protected against spraying water up to 60 degrees from vertical. Limited ingress permitted for 3 minutes.
4 Protected against solids larger than 1mm. Protected against water splashed from any direction. Limited ingress permitted.
5 Protected against dust. Limited ingress of dust permitted. Will not affect operation of equipment 2-8 hours. Protected against jets of water. Limited ingress permitted.
6 Dust tight. No ingress of dust 2-8 hours. Protected against powerful jets of water. Limited ingress permitted.
7 ______________________ Protected against the effects of immersion in 15cm-1m for 30 minutes.
8 ______________________ Continuous immersion in water up to 3m for long periods of time.
9 ______________________ Protected against high pressure jets of hot water. (30 seconds)
9K ______________________ Protected against high pressure jets of hot water. (2 minutes)

Mounting Type: Indicates how the device is attached.

Mounting Feature: A modifying feature to how the device is being attached.

Ratings: Minimum performance standards of the device, which are typically set by a third party.

Shielding: Whether or not the device possesses an electrically insulating barrier that helps to reduce or eliminate electromagnetic interference.

Shell Material, Finish: Indicates the material from which a connector’s shell is fabricated, and the material or process used for surface treatment thereof.
