Has anyone encountered corrosion in RJ11 / RJ45 jack / plugs? I think this effect might be mostly limted to areas closer to the sea, high humidity areas, in higher temperature areas and where there might be additional airborne pollutants. Florida and Hawaii come to mind.
Also, the use of voice on the line (with voltages of up to +/- 48 volts
- ?) may worsen electrolytic corrosion - I don't think it's a galvanic corrision effect. Not sure.
I'm wondering what will happen with the planned Power over the Ethernet. That will use 48 volts across pins of the RJ45 connectors.
Thanks for any comments you may have,
