    I just ordered a custom PCB design from China.
    basically it is a 6 way Rj45 Breakaway board.

    The price is quite cheap after the first unit (you pay more for the first one / Singles)


    here is a 2 way breakaway.
    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Existing-design-of-RJ45-Breakout-Board-with-2-RJ45-Jacks-and-2-8pins-terminal-blocks/665179369.html

    basically the one I am getting made has 2 rows of 3 on the same board.
    the Price is $30USD each (im ordering 6) and when I have them ill post some images so if anyone else wants them I can get more made.

    I'm also thinking about a power injector version.

    There was a group buy on here for similar I think, but I dont think it went anywhere.
    maybe if theres enough interest another one can be organised?
    $30 per board is a tad over the top.

    By putting the RJ45 connectors 180° the other way (tabs away from each other) you could make the boards smaller.

    Looks neat all the same. :)
