Common UTP Wiring Schemes

  
Heavy-Duty Hand Tool with 8-position die. Cuts, strips, and crimps cable.


  

  
The jacket of the UTP cable is stripped down about 1 1/2 to 2 inches.


  

  
Pairs are untwisted and arranged from left to right: (1) White with Orange wire, (2) Orange wire, (3) White with Green wire, (4) Blue wire, (5) White with Blue wire, (6) Green wire, (7) White with Brown wire, and (8) Brown wire.

  

   
Use the built in guide on the wirecutter portion of the Heavy-Duty Hand tool. This is the most accurate method of cutting unnecessary wire away and preserving the right amount of usable wire.


  

  
The ends of the wire must be cut even across so that each wire can span the course of the entire connecter.

Firmly push the wire until the ends of the wire reach the end of the connector. It is very important to have the insulation pushed into the connector, it should be inserted past the crimp point.


  

  
Place the connecter in the termination portion of the Heavy-Duty Hand tool.


  

  
Flip the Locking mechanism to the unlock postion and crimp!


  

  
Apply pressure until the Hand tool locks in the closed position. Remove the connector and test.
