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 pin and socket versions of the TE Connectivity® CeeLok FAS-X® Connector System. They first detail the tools and materials you’ll need, which include:

  • Needle nose pliers, scalpel, tweezer scissors, cutters or suitable equivalent tools
  • Wire strippers (45-125)
  • Polyimide tape (S-10518)
  • Crimpers (M22520/2-01 / AFM8) and metal tweezer (M81969/8-01)
  • Socket positioner M22520/2-07 (K40) and pin positioner M22520/2-09 (K42)
  • Installation removal tool (M81969/14-01)
  • Probe/pick

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

Performing Required Testing

You should perform all required testing. Gore recommends the assembly should, at the minimum, be verified for proper wiring and continuity, and checked for shorts. You may be required to complete additional testing by local authorities and/or end-users. Gore recommends testing the final assembly using an advanced signal integrity tester such as the Fluke Networks® DSX-5000 or equivalent.

Contact a Gore Representative for More Information or Assistance

Terminating Gore’s wires and cables properly with connectors ensures high-speed data transmission with optimal signal integrity. These assembly termination instructions should only be used for the 4-pair design of GORE Ethernet Cables for Cat6A protocol with the pin and socket versions of the TE Connectivity® CeeLok FAS-X® Connector System.

Request a complimentary sample of our Ethernet cables for prototyping and evaluation in your application. If you’re ready to buy, contact a trusted distributor for in-stock availability.
