Product Description

The Cat5e Termination Box is used to join your Armoured Data Cable to another form of Cat5e Ethernet Cable.

If only part of the distance between the 2 network points requires armoured Ethernet. Terminate the Cat5e SWA cable and then terminate and run a more cost effective none armoured outdoor data cable.

** The Termination Box is used for connecting 2 x “Solid” Ethernet Cables.

TIP: There are 2 types of Cat5e Ethernet cable, Solid & Stranded. When you buy a large reel of data cable, this is typically solid. When you buy a Patch Lead, this is typically stranded.

“Stranded cable is used for making patch cables where RJ45 connectors are crimped on to each end and plug directly into components (network card, router, switch, etc…).”

“Solid cable is used to terminate on IDC (Insulation Displacement Connector) jacks or patch panels. Using stranded cable in these IDC terminations is not recommended. The “v” slot type IDC accommodates solid conductors.”
