“We truly appreciate the industry recognition that REVConnect continues to receive,” says Belden Product Manager, Copper/Fiber Connectivity, Matt Baum. “It is a game-changing RJ45 connectivity system, and the tremendous response has reaffirmed that installers needed a reliable, easy-to-use and innovative connectivity solution for next-generation applications.”

Released in September 2016, REVConnect revolutionizes RJ45 connectivity. Before the launch of REVConnect, RJ45 connections required a lengthy and arduous punch-down or single-wire crimping process. Now, Ethernet cables of all types (Category 5e through Category 6A, shielded and unshielded) can terminate onto a single “core” end that is compatible with eight RJ45 modules, including jacks and plugs. Before REVConnect, an entire bag of tools was needed to support terminations required for each connector type. Now, one REVConnect tool completes the entire process – including cable prep – simplifying termination and reducing installation time.

REVConnect was created to address a critical need: providing integrators with reliable, easy and versatile terminations that support IP convergence over a range of applications, from wired LANs to digital signage, mixing consoles, building automation and LED lighting systems.

Only Belden’s innovative enterprise connectivity solutions take a universal approach to customers’ enterprises, resolving signal transmission needs with IP- and legacy-based solutions that enable a smooth migration to convergence. Belden’s extensive portfolio spans LAN, data centers, building automation and security and access control to keep information running smoothly.
