RJ45 connector basic structure there?

The basic structure of RJ45 network connector, there are three: 1, the contacts; 2, insulation; 3, the shielding case (depending on species may be).

1, the contact member (contact) RJ45 network connector is electrically connected to the completion of the core functions of the parts. Usually by the positive and negative contacts contacts contact pair composed by male and female contacts are mated to complete electrical connection. The positive contact of rigid parts, which shape is cylindrical (round pins), square column (square pin) or flat-shaped (inserts). Positive contacts generally made of brass, phosphor bronze. I.e. negative socket contact, the contact is part of the key, it relies on an elastic structure with the pin insertion timely elastic deformation force of the elastic contact member into close contact with the positive, to complete the connection.

2, an insulator. Often referred insulator body, a base (base) or mounting plate (insert), its role is to make contact by location and spacing of the required arrangement, and to ensure that the contact between the RJ45 network connector member and the contact member and the housing insulation between. Good insulation resistance, voltage resistance and ease of processing is to select the insulating material of the basic requirements.

3, the housing. Also known as shell (shield), the RJ45 network connector housing, which provides insulation and contacts built mechanical protection, and provides plug and socket plug timely alignment, and then secure the connector to the device.
