Used for - These network outlet faceplates are a perfect fitting for cables that have been run between rooms beneath floors and behind walls. The faceplate is fitted to a standard single back box using the included fixing screws, just like an aerial socket or power outlet. The wires can be attached to the keystone jack at the back of the sockets in just a few minutes, using an IDC termination tool which is a small scale technician’s tool for guiding wires into small sockets.
The use of IDC connectors on the keystone jack, means the connector itself actually pierces the wire’s plastic insulation as it is pushed in, thus making installation as easy as possible. The colour coding on the back of each keystone jack is an easy alternative to complex wiring diagrams.
After running a CAT6 cable between the two points on your wall, strip off a short section of the outer cable insulation and follow the colour coded labels on the socket (see picture) to push each internal wire into the corresponding connection using an IDC tool. The colour coded wiring on the back of the keystone jack is TIA/EIA-568-B, if you wish to wire in TIA/EIA-568-A then a wiring diagram can be obtained easily online.
Wiring - Depending on the application in which you hope to use it, the socket can be wired in both the ‘straight through’ or ‘cross-over’ configurations.
'Cross over' cables are usually used for connecting 2 computers directly to one another, without the use of a Hub or Router. They use TIA/EIA-568-A wiring at one end, and TIA/EIA-568-B at the other.
'Straight through' cables can be used for connecting a PC or games console to a Hub/Router, or, in conjunction with AV extender devices, for audio and video distribution throughout a home or commercial project. To create a 'Straight through' cable, it should be wired using the same wiring variant at both ends. Either ‘TIA/EIA-568-A to TIA/EIA-568-A’ or ‘TIA/EIA-568-B to TIA/EIA-568-B’
