RJ-45 Wall Receptors etc..

by jamisonwalter / June 12, 2005 10:48 AM PDT

I am looking for a good place online to purchase rj-45 wall receptors. I need one that has a power outlet on top (or bottom) and an rj-45 outlet. I am looking for a place that deals with volume and has a low price. If anyone has found such a place, please let me know.

In absolute order of importance!!! (unlike some of my posts that are not in order of importance...)


NUMBER ONE!!!!! Forget your idea as stated. Completely put it out of your head. NOW! Power junction boxes should NEVER NEVER NEVER be mixed with telecom. It is a violation of the National Electric Code and your homeowner's insurance agent will thumb his/her nose at you when your house burns down. Separate boxes. Period.

2) If you are looking for reasonably priced wall plates and connectors, interestingly enough, your local Home Despot or Lowes has a pretty good selection in the electrical department.

If you do not live close to a Home Depot or Lowes,

http://www.cyberguys.com

has the wallplates, jacks, and most everything else you would for your installation. For the reason **** gave, you will not find any wall plates combining power and communications. I live within 3 or 4 miles of both Home Depot and Lowes, and buy such items there. However, I have gotten many other items from Cyberguys, and have found their prices to be good and their shipments prompt.

Ethernet is low voltage, and therefore does not really need an outlet box. Just cut a hole in the wall slightly larger than the projection of a jack from the back of the plate, run the cable, crimp on the jack, insert it into the plate, and fasten the plate to the wall with screws. Personally, I would run the comm cable on the opposite side of a stud from the power line.

Thanks for the information. I've wondered why there wasn't such a wall plate that I was looking for and you have answered my question.
