Crestron CAT5 Wiring
Introduction
Category 5 (CAT5) wiring is a twisted pair cable designed for Ethernet networks.
These networks operate at speeds of up to 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) using the
100baseT standard. Crestron® takes advantage of this specification for a variety of
audio and video applications. This document contains basic CAT5 information and
specific wiring connections for Crestron audio and video CAT5 devices.
The term “Category” refers to the classifications of UTP (unshielded twisted pair)
cables. The differences in the classification of the cables are their electrical
performance criteria. ANSI/EIA (American National Standards Institute/Electronic
Industries Association) Standard 568 is one of several standards that specify these
categories of twisted pair cabling systems, which includes wires, junctions, cable
material and connectors, in terms of the data rates that they can sustain. There are
currently three main Categories of cable - Category 3, Category 4, and Category 5.
•
Category 3 = Rated to 16 MHz (used for Ethernet 10BaseT)
•
Category 4 = Rated to 20 MHz (used for Token-Ring, 10BaseT)
•
Category 5 = Rated to 100 MHz (used for 100BaseT, 10BaseT)
Under the 10BaseT/100BaseT (twisted pair) standard, the distance between
connected components cannot exceed 328 feet (100 meters).
In large Ethernet configurations, Crestron recommends the use of a hub or switch for
signal distribution. Generally, in a hub system every device must have a separate
wire returning to a central point.
CAT5 wire is typically four pairs of 24AWG solid copper wires, with each pair
twisted about three times per inch. It can be supplied with or without a foil shield,
and with various outer insulation materials.
CAT5E (enhanced) is essentially the same as CAT5, however it is made to higher
electrical standards.
NOTE: Special plenum cable is required if you are running the wire in heating
system plenums or in certain commercial settings.

Electrical Measurements of CAT5E Wiring
The specifications for CAT5E wiring can vary within a range as specified by
TIA/EIA. These specifications depend on the kind of connections (permanent,
patchcords, etc.), the length of cable run, and the type of termination connectors. The
following are a list of measurements that are made on CAT5E cables.
•
Attenuation is a measure of signal loss from one end of a cable to the
other, and is measured in each pair of wires.
•
NEXT (Near End Cross Talk) is a measurement of noise that is coupled
from an adjacent pair of wires, usually the receiving pair and the
transmitting pair. NEXT is measured for all pair combinations.
•
PSNEXT (Power Sum NEXT) is the measurement of one pair while all the
other pairs are in use. This calculation is made for each pair in the cable.
•
Delay Skew (Propagation Delay) is the measurement of signal speed
through the wires. All the wires of the cable are fed the same signal
simultaneously. The time difference at the receiving end of each wire is
measured, and the shortest time is subtracted from the longest time.
•
FEXT (Far End Cross Talk) is measured by transmitting on one pair and
measuring cross talk on an adjacent pair at the far end of the cable.
•
ELFEXT (Equal Level Far End Cross Talk) is FEXT minus Attenuation.
•
PSELFEXT (Power Sum ELFEXT) uses all wires in the cable.
•
ACR (Attenuation to Cross Talk Ratio) is a measurement of the ratio of
signal to noise and reveals the bandwidth of the cable. It is derived by the
difference between NEXT and Attenuation.
•
Never pull CAT5 wire with excessive force. The CAT5 tension limitation is
25 lbs, much lower than standard audio/video cable.
•
Never step on or crush, kink, or crimp CAT5.
•
Avoid periodic sags; vary the intervals if the cable must sag.
•
Do not bend CAT5 wire tightly around a corner; ensure that it bends
gradually, so that a whole circle would be at least two inches in diameter.
•
Do not allow knots or kinks, even temporarily.
•
When using conduit, do not fill to more than 40% if using more than two
cables (National Electrical Code, Chapter 9, Table 1).
•
Never untwist the two wires in a single pair for more than 1/3-1/2"
(0.84 – 1.27 cm) when making a connection (the twists are critical to
canceling out interference between the wires).
•
Never run CAT5 parallel to power wiring closer than six inches.
•
Avoid splices. Every splice degrades the line.

CAT5 Pin and Color Specifications
There are two standards for CAT5 wiring, TIA-568B and TIA-568A.
TIA-568B is a straight-through connection. The signals on pins 1 through 8 are
identical on both ends of the cable.
TIA-568A is a straight-through connection. The signals on pins 1 through 8 are
identical on both ends of the cable. However, the orange and green pairs of wires
exchange pair numbers and are connected to different pins than TIA-568B.
NOTE: To determine which pin is number 1, hold the cable so that the end of the
eight pin modular plug is facing toward you, with clip down and copper side up.
When looking down at the copper connections, pin 1 will be on the far right.
NOTE: Do not confuse pair numbers with pin numbers. A pair number is used for
reference only (e.g., 10BaseT Ethernet uses pairs 2 & 3). The pin numbers indicate
actual physical locations on the plug and jack.

CAT5 Cable Pairs
The CAT5 twisted cable pairs are color-coded; the pair colors depend on which EIA
specification is used, TIA-568B or TIA-568A.

Audio Applications
NOTE: Balanced audio does not require a shield if the cable has good common
mode characteristics (such as CAT5). Unbalanced audio signals are sent on a single
wire, using ground as the reference for the signal. Ground wires are problematic
because they can carry current when exposed to electromagnetic fields or when there
is a voltage difference between the two connecting pieces of equipment. Balanced
audio uses two signal wires. The signal and its complement are sent down the
twisted pair together. Any noise picked up tends to be of equal amplitude and in
phase on both wires. At the receiver, the two signals are subtracted, and noise is
cancelled out. This technique is called common mode rejection.

Connect the TPS-IMC-BV to the CNX-BIPAD8 using the Crestron TPS Audio
cable. Audio on both channels will work properly when connecting the TPS panel
and the TPS-IMC-BV and using a standard EIA 568B CAT5 cable between
CNX-BIPAD8 and TPS-IMC-BV.
When connecting the CNX-BIPAD8 direct to the TPS touchpanel (not using the
TPS-IMC-BV) using a standard CAT5 cable or Crestron TPS Audio cable, only the
audio on the right channel will operate.

Audio and Mic Connections to Touchpanel Direct
from CNXRMCLV
When wiring the TPS touch panel direct to the CNXRMCLV, audio on the left
channel works using either a standard CAT5 cable or the Crestron TPS Audio cable.
The MIC OUT of the TPS-IMC-BV to a CNXRMCLV does not work if you use a
standard CAT5 cable. If you wire directly to the TPS panel not using the
TPS-IMC-BV, only the right channel is available. The recommended way to wire
audio to the CNXRMCLV, and obtain both channels of audio to the TPS touchpanel,
is to use the TPS-IMC or TPS-IMW and connect the CNXRMCLV directly to the
mini connector labeled AUDIO INPUT, using a CAT5 cable. Refer to page 10 for a
diagram.

The QuickMedia Transport System
Using a new, proprietary signal routing solution, signals such as composite video,
S-video, RGBHV, audio, microphone and control, are all transported using a single
cable solution called QuickMedia™ (QM).
The QuickMedia Transport System port is capable of managing computer, video, and
audio signals simultaneously through one CAT5E/UTP wire, simplifying
MediaManager installations.
Routing CAT5E/UTP cable is less expensive and much simpler than routing
multi-colored, multi-conductor coax cable. All Crestron products using the
QuickMedia Transport System are capable of sending and receiving QuickMedia
signals via standard CAT5E/UTP cable. Crestron recommends Belden Media-Twist
cable, and Crescat-QM. Installation of any QuickMedia device is as simple as
installing one set of QuickMedia wires from output to input. Installations are
flexible, affordable, and fast.
The Crescat-QM cable contains one CAT5E cable and one Cresnet cable in a
siamese jacket.

Crestron CAT5 Wiring
QuickMedia Cable – CRESCAT-QM
The QuickMedia receiver performs frequency compensation on each video input to
compensate for skew. Signal skew occurs when part of the signal is delayed with
respect to other signal components. The amount of skew largely depends on the
length of the QuickMedia cable. Unequal wire lengths are created because CAT5
consists of twisted pairs that are twisted together in the cable.
The total accumulated skew from QM transmitter to QM receiver must not exceed 22
ns (nanoseconds). Crestron recommends a cable with a rating of less than or equal to
15 ns over its entire length.
NOTE: Do not untwist the two wires in a single pair for more than 1/3-1/2”
(0.84-1.27 cm) when making a connection. The twists are critical to canceling out
interference between the wires.
NOTE: Zero-skew, or skew-free CAT5 cables should not be used.
The aggregate cable length of a signal path originating at a QM transmitter and
terminating at a QM receiver must not exceed 450 feet (137 meters). Video signals
may experience a loss of quality over very long lengths of cable. This phenomenon is
due to the added resistance and capacitance of longer cable lengths and is not
peculiar to either Crestron and/or QuickMedia systems. To ensure sufficient
bandwidth, the maximum aggregate cable length should not exceed 450 feet. The use

Crestron CAT5 Wiring
Reference Guide
of lower-resolution signals may allow increased cable length but must be tested by
the installer with the sources to be used.
QuickMedia allows composite and S-video resolutions of 800 x 600 to 1600 x 1200
at 60 Hz. Longer lengths of cable may experience a loss of bandwidth when viewing
at high video resolutions.
NOTE: When transmitting S-video, luminance uses the green video pathway and
chrominance uses the red video pathway. When transmitting composite video, the
signal is carried on the blue video pathway.
NOTE: When using CresCAT-QM wiring, four additional wires are included for
making Cresnet connections.
When connecting multiple QM devices, the route between a QM origination point
(transmitter) and a QM endpoint (receiver) cannot have more than two midpoints
(e.g. QM-MD7x2 or other QM switchers). Refer to the following diagram of an
example QM system when configuring a QM network.

The iMedia Transport System
Using a proprietary signal routing solution, RGBHV, audio, power and control
signals are all transported using a single cable solution called iMedia.
The iMedia transport system port is capable of managing computer RGB and audio
signals simultaneously through one CresCAT-IM cable, simplifying installations.
Routing CresCAT-IM cable (low-skew CAT5e) is less expensive and a much
simpler solution for wiring iMedia systems than routing multi-colored, multiconductor coax cable. All Crestron products using the iMedia transport system are
capable of sending and receiving iMedia signals via CresCAT-IM cable. Installation
of any iMedia device is as simple as installing one iMedia cable from output to input.
Installations are affordable and fast.
The receiver can accomplish frequency compensation on each input to achieve
correct operation. This compensation scheme is effective for CresCAT-IM cables
and for other cables, as long as the maximum skew of 15 ns per 100 meters is not
exceeded.
NOTE: For proper operation and performance of every iMedia system, always use
CresCAT-IM cable.
NOTE: Zero-scew, or skew-free CAT5 cables should not be used.
