Cat 5 Cable Diagrams

Post by Shabbir Dungarwall » Thu, 28 Dec 2000 23:16:42



Hi,

I was wondering if someone could kindly tell me where I can get pinout
diagrams for Cat 5 cable.

I have the cable and the crimp kit, but no idea which wire goes on which
pin. I have tried looking at the Belkin site, and searching for them in a
number of other places, but could not find them.

I was hoping someone here may be able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Shabbir.

Strangely enough a Google search for cat5 & pinout returns as its first
page:

http://www.tek-tips.com/gviewthread.cfm/lev2/9/lev3/63/pid/586/qid/11149

which says:

                       pin 1 -- White w/ Orange stripe
                       pin 2 -- Orange w/ White stripe
                       pin 3 -- White w/ Green stripe
                       pin 4 -- Blue w/ White stripe
                       pin 5 -- White w/ Blue stripe
                       pin 6 -- Green w/ White stripe
                       pin 7 -- White w/ Brown stripe
                       pin 8 -- Brown w/ White stripe

which from memory is what I had to do.....

Yep.  

Oh, and pin 1 is on the left when you hold the cable with the connector
up, clip pointing away from you, cable dangling down.

mmm...

I've always heard you shouldn't put telco on the same Cat5 UTP as
10BaseT.  But maybe thats just American telco?

I don't have telco on mine..... (I'm also running 100BaseT - switch
cost less than $50 :-)

Hi there

I suppose it aplies to the wiring between your telephones and your own
exchange, not the wiring between you and your telco.

Quote:> But maybe thats just American telco?

Probably not.
As a general rule, don't trust any network any further then you can
throw a nic without damaging it.

Rob

Supposedly, the ringing currents may introduce a harmfull
voltage into the data pairs, but I don't know how true it
is.

RJ45's are used in ISDN phones also.  The standard is the phone uses
certain wires and networking jumped on the other wires because they
were available.  It's not recommended you use both at the same time,
but if you were to accidently plug in a live phone line to a NIC then you
wouldn't fry the NIC.  It's like in normal(US) phone lines, you only use
2 wires, so the other 2 are available.

Very unlikely.

Have a look at a ISDN RJ45 pin out.

Just as a point of information, ring voltage is 90 VAC at 20 Hz.

Hi there


> Just as a point of information, ring voltage is 90 VAC at 20 Hz.

You need higher voltages to get into trouble. Voltages that cause the
insolation to break down.
And if it breaks down, you only get into trouble when the current is to
large for the nic to handle.

Telco lines may carry spikes wich don't damage telephone equipment but
do damage nic's (after breaking down the insolation that is).

The symmetry of the balanced cirquits and the difference in the numer of
twists per unit of lenght of the various pairs will prevent capacitive
or inductive `leaks'.
Unless you get into something really extreme of course.

Regards,
Rob
