Flange-style bulkhead Ethernet adapter (firstname.lastname@example.org)
One of L-com's Top 10 Adapter products is a popular flange-mount Ethernet coupler that is both shielded and Category 5e rated. It uses screws to hold it in place, and is therefore a little more secure than other panel-mount adapter styles.
It has the same connector on the front as it does on the back: female RJ45 8x8 connector. However, L-com also carries an RJ45 female to 110 Punch Down IDC adapter with the flange as well. Both of these items are tremendously popular, so L-com stocks them in the thousands to keep ahead of demand.
The shielding on the flange makes contact to ground through the screws, so make sure you install this in a metallic chassis or panel if you plan to use shielded Ethernet cables.
