TIA/EIA 568-A and 568-B Termination Color Codes


TIA/EIA-568-B.1-2001 is likely the most commonly used and talked about feature of the specification created in 1988. 568-a is the definition of pin assignments for the the pairs within Category 3 (CAT3), Category 5 (CAT5) and Category 6 (CAT6) unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cables.


How to Terminate Fiber Optic Cable


To begin, strip the cable down to the bare fiber using an appropriate fiber stripper such as the FiberOpticx Fiber Stripper. After you have prepared the end of the cable you may begin to mix the epoxy resin and hardener together and load it into a syringe.


Fiber Span Analysis Calculations


Calculate a rough estimate for Fiber Span link loss or Power Budget. Determine whether you will have enough power to span the link, or whether the power will be too high, thus requiring additional attenuation.


AWG - American Wire Gauge Chart


Since 1857, the American wire gauge (AWG), also known as the Brown & Sharpe wire gauge, has been predominantly used in the United States to determine the current-carrying capacity for round, solid, nonferrous, electrically conducting wire by using the cross-sectional area as a important determining factor.

How to Terminate Keystone Jacks
Keystone Jack Punchdown Make sure the stripper is adjusted properly on a scrap piece of cable. The Stripper should be adjusted to only score the jacket to make removing it easier and not nick the twisted pairs. Using a Coaxial Stripper strip around 1 inch of the jacket off. Be careful not to nick the conductors as this will cause the wire to break or short out the connection causing problems down the road. Inspect all wires for damage before proceeding to step. Straighten the pairs out completely and lay them over the top of the keystone jack noting the color pattern for the 568b wiring. Note: Each keystone jack is slightly different in how they are labeled and how the colors are arranged. The 568B standard is most commonly used and ends of the cable must have the same standards to communicate. We have the 3 most common keystone jack styles pictured here. The first jack pictured has the 2 standard pairs on the right, and the 2 variable pairs on the left.
