Cat 6/5e/3 XTerm Jack Termination

  • After installing the mounting box or bracket, feed the 4-pair UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) cable through the wall opening.
  • Strip off approximately 2" of the cable jacket, using the appropriate cable stripping tool.
  • Separate the pairs according to color (Blue/Blue-White,Orange/Orange-White, Green/Green-White, and Brown/Brown-White).
  • To terminate (see fig. 1 and fig. 2), place each wire into the insulation displacement contacts (IDC), by matching theapplicable colors on the jack. (Either 568A or 568B)

    TIP: We recommend untwisting the pairs no more than ½" from termination point.
  • Set the jack on a firm, stable surface. Using the EZ Tool (included), press the wires down into the contacts and trim off any excess.
    If using a 110-type punch down tool (UNICOM P/N TLP-P110), place the tool over each wire with the cutting blade facing outside of the IDC and punch down firmly. (See fig. 2)
    Repeat this process with each pair.

    Note: Avoid pinching or twisting the cable. We recommend at least a 1" bend radius or more. To achieve the best performance,
    make sure the cable is compatible with the module.

Cat 5e/3 SpeedCap Termination

  • After installing the mounting box or bracket, feed the 4-pair UTP(Unshielded Twisted Pair) cable through the wall opening.
  • Strip off approximately 2" of the cable jacket, using the appropriate cable stripping tool.
  • Separate the pairs according to color (Blue/Blue-White, Orange/Orange-White, Green/Green-White, and Brown/Brown-White).
  • Position the Category 5e wires into the proper channels on the modular jack according to the color-coded wiring scheme labeled on the module cap (see fig. 1)

    TIP: We recommend untwisting the pairs no more than ½" from termination point.
  • Firmly press cap onto module until cap snaps into place. (see fig. 2)TIP: To ensure a secure termination, you may use pliers.

    Note: Avoid pinching or twisting the cable. We recommend at least a 1" bend radius or more. To achieve the best performance, make sure the cable is compatible with the module.

Patch Cord Installation

  • No special tools are needed to install the Patch Cord.
  • Insert plug into outlet jack until it snaps securely (see fig. 1).

    Note: Avoid pinching or twisting the cable. We recommend at least a 1" bend radius or more.

Installation of Module into Faceplate

  • Determine the location for mounting the MIO+ faceplate.
  • Attach the moduleconnector to the cables by following the instructions for the module connector.
  • Insert module connector from the rear of the faceplate (see Note 1) with the locking tab facing up.
  • Position the module at a 45° angle inserting the lower edge first, then press firmly inwards until the top tab snaps securely into place.

    TIP: Fill any unused outlet port with port fillers for safety and finished appearance.

    TIP: To remove a module, press down on the locking tab using a small screwdriver and remove the module.
  • Mount the faceplate to a standard electrical box or low-voltage wall bracket with the hardware provided. Apply labels and/or
    clear screw covers, if applicable.

    Note 1: When installing modules in an MIO+ Angled Standard faceplate or Flex-Link faceplate the locking tab must be facing down.

F-Type Connector Installation

  • Feed to coaxial cable through the wall opening.
  • Attach the coax connector by following the manufacturer instruction.
  • From the back, place the coax connector on the threaded barrel of the F-Type Connector.
  • Holding the F-Type Connector, turn the coax connector clock wise until firmly snugged
