Cable Gland Assembly

Required components:

  1. FTP Cat5e cable;
  2. Unshielded RJ-45 connector;
  3. Shielded RJ-45 connector;
  4. Cable gland nut;
  5. Split sealing grommet;
  6. Cable gland threaded coupling.



NOTE

The outside diameter value of the FTP Cat5e cable should not exceed 7 mm.

NOTE

Cable gland can be assembled on pre-crimped cable.

Step 1


  • Crimp the unshielded RJ-45 connector (2) onto the cable using the crimping tool.

Pin-out scheme: T568B wiring standards

NOTE

Do not use the shielded RJ-45 connector on this end of the cable as it should be attached on the IDU end.

CAUTION

MAKE SURE THAT THE RJ-45 CONNECTOR IS WELL-CRIMPED. A LOOSE CONNECTOR CAN DAMAGE THE DEVICE. PLEASE NOTE THAT SUCH DAMAGE IS NOT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY.

Step 2


  • Put the cable gland nut (4), the split sealing grommet (5) and the cable gland threaded coupling (6) onto the pre-terminated cable.

Step 3


  • Insert the split sealing grommet (5) into the cable gland threaded coupling (6).

Step 4


  • Insert the connector into the socket until you hear a click.

Step 5


  • Screw the cable gland threaded coupling (6) into the port and tighten it.

Step 6


  • Tighten the cable gland nut (4). Do not apply excessive force.





Cable Gland Assembly for Optical Cable

Required components:

  1. Optical cable
  2. Optical connector
  3. SFP-module
  4. Cable gland nut
  5. Split sealing grommet
  6. Cable gland threaded coupling.

Step 1


  • Put the cable gland nut (4), the split sealing grommet (5) and cable gland threaded coupling (6) onto the pre-terminated optical cable (1).

Step 2


  • Insert the split sealing grommet (5) into the cable gland threaded coupling (6).

Step 3


  • Set the SFP-module (3) into the socket until you hear a click.

Step 4


  • Insert the optical connector into the SFP-module (3).

Step 5


  • Screw the cable gland threaded coupling (6) into the port and tighten it.

Step 6


  • Tighten the cable gland nut (4). Do not apply excessive force.

NOTE

In order to disassemble SFP, please disconnect the optical cable, pull the clip of the SFP-module and withdraw the SFP-module from the slot.
