2x Double RJ45 CAT6a Shielded Wall Socket
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 IDC terminals at the back of the sockets in just a few minutes and NO TOOLS are required to do so.
The use of IDC connectors on these wall plates 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 IDC terminal is an easy alternative to complex wiring diagrams.
Installation - 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 push termination cap (see picture). Simply push the correct cores into each terminal (not all the way). Once all cores are lined up, pop the cap on and push down into place, this will crimp the cores onto the cable. You can then close up the metal seal and use a cable tie to secure everything in place.
Pictures above show how this works but please get in touch if you require any advice.
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’
