Manually terminate a Cat 6 RJ45 connector for either solid or stranded cable
ShowMeCables demonstrates the basic technique for terminating a Cat6 RJ45 connector for either stranded twisted-pair or round solid cable.
"The Cat6 RJ45 modular connector is designed to terminate solid or stranded Cat 6 network cable," writes the Missouri-based cabling and connectivity products supplier. "The connector contains three metal 'teeth' that hold the wire in place giving a reliable connection. Easy to terminate, these connectors are useful for creating custom-length patch cables from bulk cable."
The pinout for 50 micro-inch gold plated connectors meets FCC Section 68 specifications, while most UL listed round solid plugs are 22-24 AWG can be used to either TIA 568A or 568B wiring schemes, adds the company.
