MANUALS & USER GUIDES -
- Use a wire stripper to remove about 2" of cable jacket
- Select your desired wiring scheme (T568A or T568B), note the associated color codes on the label located on the sides of the connector. This label also indicates connector pin numbers for ease of use.
- Route the wires to their respective slots and terminate one pair at a time starting from rear of connector.
TIP: Terminating each pair after placement will prevent crushing the inside pairs with the punchdown tool. Lay cable in so that jacket touches rear of connector.
- Using a 110 style punchdown tool, seat the wires into the IDC slots. Maintain wire pair twisting to within 1/2" of the contacts. Use the cutting side of the tool to trim the excess wire flush with the connector body.
- Place the dust cap over the terminated wires for secure connection and added strain relief.
- Insert connector assembly into platform or wallplate, be sure the connector is in the "UP" position.
