    Hi,

    I'm trying to source a panel (2.5mm thick) mounted RJ45 ethernet
    socket, ideally a back to back socket, but I would use a socket to
    cable.
    (In fact the PERFECT thing would be a panel mounted socket with about
    20-30cm of cable and a plug)

    All I can seem to find is large weatherproof panel mounted things. I
    need the max panel usage in shortest direction to be of the order of
    15-17mm.

    Can anyone point me to a source.

    Thanks.

    I am not really sure I understand what you are looking for, but Google
    for "panel mount rj45 socket" turned up a link that led to
    <http://www.gtk.co.uk/network/couplers/panel.htm> but that looks like a
    trade supplier who will not be interested small orders.

    Screwfix deal in small quantities over the net and they have some RJ45
    kit but I don't know if it is what you are looking for.

    Hi owen,

    That is almost exactly what I want, in fact I have one from that link
    here from RS.

    However, it's a pig to fit to a panel. I had one before that had a blue
    plastic piece with it, it was a damn chinese puzzle to work out how to
    fit. The RS one has no blue bit, and isn't really any good for 2.5mm
    panels.

    That kind of thing tho.

    I did google a fair bit, but I got the other IP67 industrial one
    mostly.
