How to assembly an RJ45 Connector
A modular connector is a type of electrical connector for cords and cables of electronic devices and appliances, such in computer networking, telecommunication equipment. An 8P8C modular connection consists of a male plug and a female jack, each with eight equally-spaced contacts. On the plug, the contacts are flat metal bars positioned parallel to the connector body. Inside the jack, the contacts are metal spring wires arranged at an angle toward the insertion interface. The best known features of ANSI/TIA-568 are the pin/pair assignments for eight-conductor 100-ohm balanced twisted pair cabling. These assignments are named T568A and T568B.
Wiring RJ45 connector steps
Use Crimping Tool to trim the cable and make sure the conducting wires are even.
Being careful not to damage the inner conducting wires, strip off approximately 3cm of the cable's jacket, using a modular crimping tool or a cable stripper.
Separate the 4 twisted wire pairs from each other, and then unwind each pair, so that you end up with 8 individual wires.
Holding the cable with the wire ends facing away from you. Moving from left to right, arrange the wires in a flat, side-by-side ribbon formation.
Holding the RJ45 connector so that its pins are facing away from you and the plug-clip side is facing down, carefully insert the flattened, arranged wires into the connector, pushing through until the wire ends emerge from the pins.
Check to make sure that the wire ends coming out of the connector's pin side are in the correct order.
Insert the prepared connector/cable assembly into the RJ45 slot in your crimping tool. Firmly squeeze the crimper's handles together until you can't go any further.
