UTP cable specifications
To connect to the network, the NC340T uses the following cable for 1000Base-T transmission:
•
CAT5 UTP or better twisted-pair
•
22-26 AWG, 100Ω @ 1 MHz
•
EIA/TIA 568a or EIA/TIA 568b
NOTE: For Gigabit over copper installations, CAT5 UTP or better 1000Base-T cable must
comply with the IEEE 802.3ab 1000Base-T standard. For new installations, CAT5e (enhanced
CAT5) or better cable is recommended. Maximum distances for Gigabit over copper cable are
100 meters (328 feet).
RJ-45 pinouts and crossover function
The Ethernet standard also specifies that each segment implement a crossover function to connect the
transmitter of one device to the receiver of a device at the other end, and vice-versa. The crossover
function may be implemented internally at the hub or switch or externally through the twisted-pair media.
10/100 pinouts using internal, straight-through crossover
If the crossover function is implemented internally, the port is labeled MDI-X (Medium Dependent InterfaceCrossover). When an MDI-X port is connected to an MDI port, the twisted pair media should be wired
straight-through using the physical pinouts indicated.

system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic
discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords.
To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet
when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller
