Could someone who owns an Arduino Ethernet shield please tell me the height of the shield (including the PCB as well as the RJ45 connector)?

Unfortunately the Arduino product page doesn't provide this information. Before I order one, I am trying to see whether it would fit a certain dimensional requirement I have.

From the bottom of the PCB to the top of the RJ45 connector is 19/32".

Keep in mind that the shields (the official ones, anyway) use extra long pins so the shield could be stacked on top of another equally tall shield. The pins are 1/2" long.

Thank you very much, Paul.
And regarding the extra long pins: It's too bad that only some of the shields do it. Wish there were a standard on the Arduino official page that every new shield-maker can follow.

I think that's why most shields come without pins. You can choose the length and style pins appropriate for your use of the shield.
