Connecting CAT. 6 FTP keystones

Standardy KeystoneThanks to below guide you will learn how to connect twisted pair cable to RJ-45 keystones that are category 6. Before you begin, it is necessary to decide what standard you’ll be working in. On keystone you can find two different markings:  A which represents standard 568A and B which represents 568B. We’ll be working in 568B, and in that standard will be done our connection.

  1. Let’s start from removing outer wire isolation. Careful not to cut too deep, shielding has to break when removing it – it should make distinctive “click”. This way we can b sure we did not damage inner isolation of the wire.
  2. Now we unwrap shielding foil and flip outside the wire.
  3. Then we’ll remove excess foil
  4. Next we circle the wire around flipped foil.
  5. Now its time to unwrap and remove foil.
  6. And then we’re removing the element leading to twisted pair.
  7. We’re placing cable pairs through contact points protection
  8. Then we will untangle wire pairs, and place them in clamps marked by same colors, compliant with the standard.
  9. We squeeze the wires into clamps using impact tool. It should automatically remove excess cables.
  10. Now we’re closing the keystone, you can secure the tip using a band.
  11. We can connect the keystont to patch panel or inlet.

All of this process you can watch in below video.

As you can see the process is painless and relatively easy, and if you maintain basic rules (and some common sense :) ) you’ll handle this just right.
