Self-terminating Cat 6A FTP jacks

Feb. 3, 2010
The tool-less design allows technicians to terminate all four pairs simultaneously.

The new self-terminating Category 6A FTP jack from Legrand/Ortronics, meant for workstation applications, is a rear-loading, rugged cast-encased jack featuring a tool-less termination process that the company says dramatically reduces termination times.

The jack's wire-lacing feature includes a wiring diagram, maintains pair geometry, and limits pair untwisting. By closing the jack housing, the technician fully seats the lacing cap onto the jack insulation displacement contacts, terminating all four pairs simultaneously. Die-cast metal construction creates an integral shield, which provides 360-degree coverage, the manufacturer says, adding that a supplied cable clamp provides a fast, secure, and reliable shield/ground wire connection.
