Questions & Answers

What does it mean shielded indicator light on?

What does it mean shielded indicator light on?
Asked by: F7744
A shielded modular cable uses shielded RJ45 connectors. A shielded RJ45 connector features a metallic strain relief. The bundle of wires in a shielded modular cable is wrapped with aluminum foil. During fabrication of a shielded modular cable, the jacket is stripped, the exposed aluminum is pealed off and the exposed portion of the spline is removed. The bare wire is the ground wire. Before crimping the 8 wires into the RJ45 connector, the ground wire is bent backward onto the jacket. After the crimping action is performed, the two tabs on the metallic strain relief are pressed against the jacket which forms the connection between the connector and the ground wire. The tester verifies that there is continuity between the two RJ45 connectors. If there is no continuity, then there is something wrong with one or both connectors or the cable itself. A properly fabricated shielded modular cable will illuminate the shielded light on the tester.

Can this tool be used for a cat 7 ethernet cable?
Asked by: NickD
Yes, I believe it can be used for testing CAT7 cables. CAT7 cables provide same pairs of cables but superior shielding for use in smart homes.
