This one going out to all the makers and designers who use DIN railing in their builds. These adapter plates were recommended by a customer. It’s perfect for simplifying complex wiring. You connect an RJ-45 cable (a.k.a Ethernet) to this very PCB which can be DIN rail-mounted. Then, all 8 wires are broken out into terminal blocks, so you can connect and power your sensors, displays, microcontrollers, etc.
We have the DIN Rail RJ-45 to Terminal Block Adapter that comes with a Vertical (Straight) RJ45 Ethernet jack on one end and terminal blocks on the other, and we also have a DIN Rail RJ-45 to Terminal Block Adapter – Right Angle.
No soldering required! Just unscrew the terminal blocks and slide in your stranded or solid-core wire.
Note that these aren’t recommended for actual Ethernet traffic, especially long term…given that the twisted pairs are decidedly untwisted when they are on the PCB but for basic power/data distribution, RJ-45’s are great!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
