Please note: While these Termination Instructions offer a helpful guide, they should always be used alongside current connector system manufacturing instructions for best results.

About the Termination Instructions

These Termination Instructions are intended solely for terminating Gore’s 4-pair Cat6A Ethernet cables and wires with the plug version of the Bel Stewart SS-39200 Series Connector System. They first detail the tools and materials you’ll need, which include:

  • Bel Stewart Crimpers (2980075-01)
  • Copper foil tape (3M-3313)
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Scalpel
  • Tweezer scissors
  • Cutters

Preparing the cable, parts and plug connector, closing the connector, and performing all required testing are all covered thoroughly with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and visual aids, like photos and illustrations, to help you ensure proper termination.

Performing Required Testing

You should perform all required testing. Gore recommends that you complete the following steps at a minimum. You may be required to complete additional testing by local authorities and/or end-users.

  • Verify proper wiring and continuity
  • Check for shorts
  • Verify accurate assembly length

To verify the complete assembly’s performance to a wide range of Ethernet standards, Gore recommends using a Fluke Networks® DSX Series or similar model.
