Contact Panduit customer service to initiate your order for any patch cord described in this technical reference. You have several shipping options for parcel shipping: standard ground 5 to 7 business days, 2 to 3 business days, or next business day. Installers appreciate that the termination cap on all Panduit jack modules includes a wire map label that illustrates the correct conductor positions for T568A and T568B termination. As shown in the illustration below, the only difference between T568A and T568B is the orientation of the green and orange pairs. Each conductor inside the patch cable connects to the same pin on both modular plug ends.
Most modern hubs and switches have auto-sensing ports that allow the use of straight patch cords T568A or T568B for direct connections; however, regardless of equipment capabilities, many installers prefer the use of crossover cords for all direct connections. . An elevator must be available to provide service to floors above or below the trailer. Panduit manufactures a complete line of patch cords in Category 6A, 6, and 5e performance categories. We are also not able to ship to Post Office Box addresses. As shown in the illustration below, a roll-over patch cord completely reverses the pin configurations between the two modular plugs. The term crossover is used because the send and receive pairs are crossed from one modular plug end 1 to the other end 2.
T568A and T568B are straight-through wiring schemes. The table below shows the part number matrix for these standard cords. Shipping charges are calculated based on the shipping option you select, and is prepaid by you at the time of shipment. Orders received during non-business days are processed on the next business day. Removable band snaps on and off individual cables allowing the same patch cord to be used for different applications Can be installed next to each other allowing multiple color bands to be used on one cable, offering endless color coding options Internal grooves secure color bands in place on cable providing easy identification at the connection Compatible with all Panduit patch cords, existing and installations can be color-coded as networks change. This is because only 2 of the 4 conductor pairs have been crossed. In the meantime, if you have any questions or would just prefer to place your order by phone, please call us toll-free at 866-222-0030 - we'll be happy to help.
Although completely interchangeable in traditional plug-to-plug form, installers must be cognizant of the patch cord wiring scheme if they cut the patch cord to terminate a jack module on one end. This technique is often used when the modular plug is connected to a switch, and the jack module is installed in a modular patch panel. These wiring schemes include T568A, T568B, crossover flipped , and rolled roll-over. Pin 2 on modular plug end 1 connects to pin 7 on modular plug end 2, and so on. For visual differentiation, it is common for crossover cords to be deployed in a different color than standard straight-through cables.
These cords can be manufactured in any cord type, length, or standard color. As shown in the illustration below, Panduit cords crossover all 4 pairs. Standard meter lengths include 2 to 5 meters one meter increments 1 and 1. Panduit is aware of confusion in the marketplace regarding patch cord wiring schemes and when they should be employed. It is the required wiring scheme for all government installations and in all performance categories. The purpose of this technical reference is to eliminate any confusion, by providing an overview of each wiring scheme as well as typical deployment strategies in structured cabling systems. Standard foot lengths include 2 to 10 feet one foot increments 15 and 20 feet.
Both wiring schemes are acceptable in network topologies, and are essentially interchangeable. They have a universal design compatible with most modular patch panels. . . . . .
