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 with the plug and receptacle versions of the Glenair® El Ochito® Connector System. They first detail the tools and materials you’ll need, which include:

  • Needle nose pliers, scalpel, tweezer scissors, hand strippers and cutters
  • Crimpers (M22520/2-01)
  • Positioner (K1906)
  • Crimp Die Y143 (M22520/5-45)
  • Braid brush
  • Probe/pick

Preparing the cable and parts, terminating the crimp socket connector (Termination A) and crimp pin connector (Termination B), closing the connectors and performing required testing are all covered thoroughly with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and visual aids, like photos, to help you ensure proper termination.

Performing Required Testing

Before closing the connectors, 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
