Pi-EzConnect-RJ45 – Connect Pi pins/GPIO etc. using RJ45 cables
Cramped for space for wiring? Wish you could use RJ45 cables to connect a Raspberry Pi to sensors etc.? Need to connect a Raspberry Pi in a wiring closet or to a punch-down block (e.g., M66 block or Split 66 block or other punch down blocks)? Pi-EzConnect-RJ45 provides that connectivity. Multiple sensors, IoT boards, or other devices distributed over the premises or your network can cause a wiring rats nest. Debugging or tracing the wiring can be time-consuming.
With Pi-EzConnect-RJ45, use Ethernet cables or straight through RJ45 cables, punch down the connections from the Pi to the Punch down the block and then route the connections from the punch down block to the sensors or other IoT devices. Or connect from the P-EzConnect-RJ45 directly to sensors etc., using RJ45 cables, eliminating the punch down the block!
Power connections can be tapped from RJ45 as well as from external Terminal blocks on the Pi-EzConnect-RJ45 board. A PTC fuse protects the power supply against shorts. Both the 5V and 3.3V power sources are protected by a PTC fuse. If there are plans to deploy a Raspberry Pi in a Robot, a wiring closet, or in a Rack or any other network location, Pi-EzConnect-RJ45 makes the wiring a punch-down block easy and clean.
