Best Practice Termination Instructions

Part Number: S45-1700
STEP 1
If using Cat6 UTP cable, trim center spline/pair separator as close to the cable jacket as possible without nicking any of the wire conductors.
STEP 2
Make sure each wire conductor is straight. We recommend using the Simply45® Adjustable LAN Cable Stripper (Part: S45-S01BL/YL) that has a wire straightener comb on the top.
STEP 3
Then straighten and align wires to the correct alignment pattern (Type A or B). The B Pattern is most commonly used today. Using an angled flush cutter tool (such as Simply45 part: S45-801), trim wire ends straight before inserting them into the load bar.
STEP 4
The S45-1700P plug uses a Hi/Lo wire layout. Insert the pattern-aligned wires into the rear of the plug and push them out through the front of the plug. Then verify that the wires are still in the correct pattern alignment.
STEP 5
Insert the loaded plug into the crimping socket on the Simply45 crimp tool. Make sure plug is fully inserted.
STEP 6
Firmly and in one quick and steady motion fully compress the crimper handles until it releases. The Simply45 crimpers are ratcheted. This means that the tool handles will not release until the full and complete crimping cycle has been completed.
STEP 7
Inspect the terminated plug to be sure wires have been properly trimmed.
