For voice / data / video distribution, this cable will handle bandwidth-intensive applications. Meets all Cat5E TIA/EIA standards, and drastically reduces both impedance and structural return loss (SRL) .

Each of the individual pairs is bonded together to help maintain the twist-spacing throughout the line right up to the termination point.

Constructed from high quality cable and a shortened body plug, this design minimizes Near-End Crosstalk (NEXT) levels. Available in a variety of colors to easily color-code your network installation.

Connector 1: (1) RJ-45 Male

Connector 2: (1) RJ-45 Male

Conductor: 4-pair (UTP) 26 AWG stranded CCA

Connector: 50 micron gold-plated RJ45




Cat 5 Cable is used in network applications such as 10Base-T, 100Base-T, Ethernet technology to 100 meters (328 feet). They perform at high-data transfer rates.

How To Make a Category 5 / Cat 5e Patch Cable - Straight and Crossover - DIY


Step 1: Before we start building a patch cable you will need to cut a length of stranded Cat5e. When cutting the length you should make sure to measure. Nothing is worse than the patch cable you just built being an inch too short for your application. 

After cutting the desired length we will start building our cable by stripping back approximately 1 inch of the jacket. 

When striping back the jacket make sure that the depth of your stripper is set deep enough to cut the jacket but not so deep that it nicks the conductors. If you do nick the conductors while stripping the cable, the cable may work fine at first, but after time the conductors will break, or even worse, begin to short out. 




Step 2: Now that we have the jacket stripped back we'll want to separate and straighten the pairs. We'll start by pulling the first pair and the last pair to their respective sides (Orange to the left and Brown to the right). Untwist these pairs making sure not to untwist the cable any further than you've stripped back the jacket. Now we'll split the green pair. Pull the white/green conductor to the left and the green conductor to the right. This leaves you with the blue pair in the middle.  Untwist the blue taking care to ensure that the white/blue conductor is on the left and the blue conductor on the right.

Note: Normally, it would be unmentionable to untwist the Cat5e pairs, except when building patch cables. It would be almost impossible to insert the conductors into the proper connector locations without untwisting. (Keep in mind you want to keep as much of the twist of each pair intact in order to meet performance standards.) 




Step 3: Now that we've separated and straightened the pairs we need to arrange the conductors in the proper order according to which wiring standard you are using. For this example we will be wiring via the 568-B standard (most common in patch cables). Please consult the pin-out for the proper color codes. After you have the wires arranged, place them tightly together as show in the picture to the right. Once this is done, verify that the wires are still in the proper order and continue to step 4. 





Step 4: Now we need to trim the conductors down to fit into the RJ45 connector. While trimming, make sure you make a nice clean cut at a 90 degree angle about 1/2 of an inch from the end of the jacket. If you fail to make a straight cut, some of the conductors may not reach the connector contacts. If you cut the conductors too short, again they will not make contact. If you leave the conductors too long, when crimping the connector, the jacketing will not be gripped leaving the strain on the conductors. This is not a good situation! For proper trimming, hold the wires securely just at the end of the jacket as shown in the picture to the left. Be sure to keep the conductors in the proper order. 




Step 5: Our Cat5e patch cable is almost done. While still holding the cable firmly, we now need to place the conductors into their proper location in the RJ45 Cat5e Modular Connector.  Hold the RJ45 modular plug with the contacts facing up (towards you) and carefully insert the conductors in their proper locations. Apply a moderate amount of force in order to properly seat the wires against the contacts in the connector. When the wires have been correctly inserted into the RJ45 modular connector, observe the tip. As illustrated in the picture to the left you should be able to see the end of each conductor, indicating that the conductors were fully inserted. Also, take note of the colors. All whites should be on the top and all the colored conductors on the bottom. Once this is achieved, continue to Step 6. 




Step 6: Carefully insert the assembly which you have just completed into a modular crimping tool, taking care to verify the conductors stay fully inserted. When crimping the connector, use the full stroke of the crimp tool so that the contacts properly "bite" into the conductors.  After you have completed the crimp, take time to look at the connector and make sure all the pins were crimped and that they made good contact with the conductors. 





Step 7: If you are building a straight through (standard) Cat5e patch cable, terminate the opposite end by repeating this process from step one. If this will be a cat 5 crossover cable, return to step one and continue, however, terminate the other end of the cable using the wiring scheme that you did not use for the first end.  Terminating one end with 568-B and the other with 568-A creates a crossover cable. If it is a straight through cable you are making, simply use the same wiring scheme for both ends. 





Step 8: That's it!  Use a tester to test for continuity and your diy Cat 5, 5e patch cable is complete. 

Note: If the cable does not test positive for continuity cut the connector off and start over, or buy one of our pre-made or custom length patch cords.
