A passthrough RJ45 connector is a convenient tool for creating a category 5 cable. These connectors are available in a 100-piece bag and have a clear one-piece design that speeds terminations. This can help save time and money. The following information can help you make a choice. Choosing the right connector is important for the overall health and safety of your network.
To install RJ45 passthrough connectors on a CAT5 network cable, you must first remove the jacket from the cable. You can do this by using a Crimping Tool. Once the connector has been removed, you can trim the ends of the cable with a wire cutter. Alternatively, you can use a UTP cable stripper to remove the jacket from the cables.
To crimp the connector, first unplug the network cable and align the ends so that they are in the correct order. If the wires are in the wrong order, reverse them so that they match up. Once you have the right orientation, you can use a crimping tool with a RJ45 slot and crimp the plug. Be sure to squeeze the handles of the tool firmly, and release the tool when you are finished.
To crimp a RJ45 passthrough connector for CAT5, you must terminate the cable on both ends. The name of the connector may be confusing, but it doesn’t affect its fitment. Instead, choose the one that fits the cable the best. Generally, the category has no bearing on the type of passthrough connector. However, the CAT5 category is used to specify a specific type of passthrough connector.
