can you run inline

You can only use this jack inline (in a splice) for an analog voice circuit. It is against gigabit Ethernet standard to daisy chain or splice wiring for a data circuit.

This is what we have in our home, multiple locations with keystone e plates and mix-n-match these jacks, voice grade jacks, and RG-6 coax cable jacks.

Can I put to 2 sets of wires in these connections to feed another jack?

No but you can purchase a "switch" (really a splitter) and use one cable to feed several other cables.

How to wire for voice use

Asked by Eugene September 2, 2018

Answers

Best thing to do is to check the manufacturers recommendations. VOIP uses standard networking to communicate, Therefor use t568 a or b as long as they are terminated the same on both ends. If a poe switch or injector is used to power the phones on your network Follow the Manufacturer's recommendation EXACTLY. If you don't have this and the phones are all powered by adapters then a or b can be used if they are the SAME on both ends

I was thinking about running security cameras through this and was curious if it can pass POE wit...

As someone who has never installed an ethernet jack, this product made it very easy. The easy-to-follow color coded design made it easy to attach the wires to the right place on the jack. It even came with a punch down tool so I didn't have to buy any specialized tools. I would highly recommend this jack for how easy it is to install.

This is an excellent Category 5E Jack. We have internet access from our home to several outbuildings and use a mixture of WiFi and Ethernet cable to distribute internet and data, with the cable used for long runs. This jack when mounted in a standard Category 5E wall plate makes for a simple and clean looking installation. The jack comes with a punch-down tool which is perfectly adequate, although I do use a professional tool that makes the job easier still. The jack indicates the locations of the correct wire, so there is no chance of a mistake.

This Cat 5e punch down jack works pretty much like every other one I've used. The included plastic punch tool is a bonus in case you don't already have a metal one. I liked the easy to read wire color code stickers on the sides of the jack. As an aside, I always use "B" wiring, the included instructions imply that's only for commercial use. The third color code sticker on the top was hard to read. It comes with a gray snap-on wire cover. It's made in China.

Not reliable
Purchased two of these jacks (blue & orange), and both were duds out of the package with various terminals not making a solid connection. I tested the network cable I was using (it was good) and tried re-seating/re-punching the terminal wires (using a few different wires for troubleshooting). A major flaw in the design appears to be that the punch down terminals do not fully cut through the wire covering and so contact with the actual wires is not made. As a replacement, I purchased some more expensive jacks from another store and they worked perfectly with the first punch down wire attempt. I might have just been unlucky with some bad ones since other people seem to have success using these, but my recommendation is avoid! They are cheap and not reliable.

It doesn't get easier than this. No expensive crimping tool required. Just place the wires in the color coded slots and use the included insertion tool to press them into place for a rock solid reliable connection. Once you are done inserting the wires, you simply snap the jack right into the wall plate. It's literally and figuratively a snap!

Watch out for this item
you may wish to buy extras and later return the unused ones. I bought 4 and 2 were bad. Lost a bunch of time troubleshooting and replacing the bad connectors. One of the bad ones had 2 of the 8 spring contacts stick down and there was "open" connection. The other one would not punch thru the insulation on one half of the punchdown wire connections. I have installed hundreds of these keystone jacks and these are the first to fail for me.
