1. INTRODUCTION
This specification covers the requirements for application of Category 6 Modular Plug Connectors. These
requirements are applicable to hand or automatic machine terminating tools. Cables approved for use with
these connectors are round Category 6, twisted–pair cables, shielded or unshielded, with 23–24 AWG solid or
24–26 AWG stranded conductors. The insulated conductor outside diameters must be between
0.80 and 1.00 mm [.031 and .039 in.], and a cable jacket outside diameter between 4.7 and 6.0 mm
[.185 and .240 in.].
When corresponding with Tyco Electronics Personnel, use the terminology provided in this specification to

holder and cable jacket firmly together, untwist the pair of conductors to the point where they exit the
main body or slot of the wire holder as shown in Figure 6.
4. Straighten and arrange the conductors side–by–side and parallel according to color code as shown in
Figure 6. Note that the G/W–G pair must split to either side of the Bl/W–Bl pair. Press the conductors
flat against the front section of the wire holder.
NOTE
Untwist of conductor pairs may be performed before inserting through the wire holder.
i
CAUTION
Maintain the last twist (conductor crossing) of each pair as closely as possible to the point indicated. Up to, but not
exceeding. one half untwist may be added to achieve the proper color code arrangement or the split of the
!
G/W-G pair.

6. Continue holding all conductors down against the wire holder. Insert the front of the wire holder and
the ends of the conductors into the cavity of the plug housing. Push the wire holder into the housing until
it latches into both sides of the plug housing.
7. Visually verify that all conductors are fully inserted into the housing with the ends of the conductors
seated against the end of the housing cavity. If not, push the cable further into the wire holder until it
latches into both sides of the plug housing.
CAUTION
Do not rotate the cable relative to the plug and do not allow the wire holder to cock at an angle relative to the plug.

3.3. Connector Termination
Refer to Section 5, TOOLING, for appropriate crimp tooling and machines that are compatible with this
connector. Refer to Figures 8 and 9 and proceed as follows:
1. Slide the plug shield over the plug subassembly until it seats against the front edge of the recessed
area around the outside of the plug housing. See Figure 9,
2. Insert the plug and shield assembly into the appropriate tooling and crimp the connector according to
the instruction sheet packaged with the tooling. The shield must be free of bulges, tears, and uniform
after the crimping operation.
3. The shield end must be against the raised edge of the housing. The strain relief end must be held
firmly in place on the cable. The crimp height must be within the dimension provided in Figure 8.
CAUTION
Continue pushing the cable toward the plug during crimping to ensure that the conductors remain seated against the
front of the housing cavity.

3.4. Terminated Connector Requirements
Figure 10 shows a cutaway of a typical terminated plug and the required location of the conductors. A visual
inspection through the plastic housing of the plug should reveal whether the conductors are within the
acceptable range. For optimum transmission performance, it is preferred that all conductors be fully inserted
into the plug housing with the ends of the conductors bottomed against the end of the housing cavity. For
reliable electrical termination, the conductors must at least be inserted past the contact and into the 0.80 mm
[.032 in.] reference zone.
Inspect connector for proper crimp height using an indicator with needle–point probes or equivalent. The crimp
height shall be measured at the front of the contact as shown in Figure 10.
