  • Weatherproof or weatherproofing cat5/6 keystone

    I want to run a length of network cable out of the cab of my truck through a vent and and between the cab and bed of my truck. This will allow me to hook it to my local LAN for mass file transfers without having to leave a door open.

    Is there such a thing as a weather proof cat5 keystone? Failing that, has anyone done something similar or have any suggestions on how to protect a standard keystone?

    the ones i have seen have something like a threaded dust cover-- last i remember seeing some, they were at allied electronics. i am sure that there are other sources-- just search for industrial rj-45 connector.

    if you have trouble finding them, post up, and i can grab the part numbers out of my allied catalog.
