- Max recommended outer cable diameter of 0.260"
The 85-361 shielded CAT5e modular plug has an attached metal shell that is designed to provide a continuous path for the cable shielding to pass through the connector and into the device's shielded port. The connector has internal shield connection points on the top and bottom of the connector for cable foil or drain wire to make contact within the plug. The plugs are compatible with shielded or unshielded CAT5e cables with conductors that have a maximum insulated diameter of 0.041". The single piece design uses a standard cable preparation and 1/2" conductor trim, with the additional step of requiring the foil be folded back over the jacket, or drain wire wrapped, to ensure conductivity with the plug shield.
This connector is compatible with all IDEAL modular plug crimping tools : 30-495, 30-696, 30-495, 33-700, 33-396.
