Plugs are designed and manufactured to support all 100Ω cable wiring schemes including the widely used TIA-568A and TIA-568B configurations. Ideal modular plugs are manufactured to strict industry standards and tolerances that utilize traditional preparation and termination methods. These proven and preferred methods allow for improved compatibility among manufacturers and devices around the world without the need for special tooling or preparation methods.

  • 8-position, 8-contact RJ-45 modular plug for cat 5e, 100Ω balanced twisted pair 100 MHz cables
  • 50 micro-inch gold plating on contact mating area for long term reliability in connectivity, even after hundreds of mating cycles
  • Precision-ground, knife-type blades provide clean, accurate stripping
  • Designed to work seamlessly with Ideal telemaster crimping tools, also compatible with industry standard modular plug crimping tools meeting specifications
  • 3-prong contact design for use with solid or stranded 24-26 AWG insulated copper conductors, maximum conductor diameter of 0.042 in./1.07 mm, maximum recommended cable outer jacket diameter 0.175 in./4.5 mm
  • Permanent connection - once crimped they cannot be reused
  • Primary and secondary strain relief supports to retain cable jacket and minimize conductor movement once crimped
  • Optional external strain relief boots are available

Do these work with Cat6 cables?

Asked by: Jason
"Work"? Yes. Full speed Gigabit? Possibly not. I'd suggest getting ones that say Cat6 on the packaging.

What is the easiest way to insert the wires in the proper order?

Asked by: joe
I strip about an inch of the outer jacket off. Then separate the 4 pairs and use the jacket tube that I stripped off to unfurl the pairs. Roll the wires across your fingers to straighten them out. Then arrange in pairs in a fan fashition: wht/org - solid org - wht/grn - solid blue - wht/blue - solid green - wht/brn - solid brown. Finally, I sort of squish the wires flat between my thumb and forefinger and use the tool to trim right at the edge of my thumb. While still squishing the wires, slowly slide into the connector and watch that the wires don't switch positions as they insert. It's pretty easy once you've done a few.

RJ-45 8-Position 8-Contact Category 5e Modular Plugs (25 per Card) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 88.

Whenever you have to connectorize data cable, you need too make sure that you buy the plug and jack that matches or exceeds the speed rating of your system. You may be able to read the category number, (eg. cat-5) off the installed cable that you're installing the connector on. Our system is older and I know that cat-5 is enough, so cat-5e will be more than enough to allow proper bandwidth and minimum interference between pins (crosstalk), so I selected the RJ-45 (8-contact telephone-shaped plug) cat 5e. I got a pack of 25 because I know that if I don't use them to install at the end of directly-run cords, I probably will roll-my-own patch cords to go from the computer to the wall jacks. Use the proper connector crimping tool for data jacks in which the crimping jaws come down parallel to each other, not at an angle like most pliers do. Home Depot has enough to get you through home or small jobs with consistency.

I've only used the crimper and not the punch-down tool yet, but making my own cables is easy! I used it to run cabling to an IP camera security system where the included cables were way too short. Now, I'll never buy another Ethernet cable again. It seems they're always too short or way too long.

I installed close to 100 of these and have not had one failure due to manufacturing defect etc. I would recommend anyone who is making their own cables to use these. Make sure you get the quality tool you need to do the job right.

I got them because the cat 5 connectors that I already had were difficult to connect. These are much better!! The tolerances of the wire guides are such that the wires go exactly where they need to be to make good connections.
