Quickly and easily connect your telephone, fax machine or modem with our 14ft Modular Telephone Cables. These cables are constructed from quality silver satin wires with a heavy duty PVC jacket, while gold plated connectors provide for clear communication. The flat design helps to avoid kinks and stress on the line. Features
Why do you use gold plated connectors? Gold is an excellent conductor of electrical charges, and resists corrosion, as well. This means over time you are less likely to see any signal degradation due to environmental effects like humidity and moisture. What does stranded wire mean? Stranded means the wire is more flexible and contains many tiny strands of wire bound together within each individual wire. Stranded wire is most commonly used in patch cables due to its pliability. The alternative is solid cable, which means each individual wire is made up of one solid core wire. It is more rigid and can carry a stronger signal than stranded wire, so it is ideal for longer runs and outdoor applications. What is the difference between straight cables and reverse cables? Straight cables are typically used for data applications and have the same wire configuration on both ends. Reverse cables have the wire order reversed on one end. These are ideal for connecting a phone to a jack and standard voice applications. What do you mean by Silver Satin wiring? Silver satin refers to the layout of the cables. The cables are run side by side, as opposed to twisted pairs. What does modular mean? Modular refers to the type of connector used on the cable. These cables use RJ11 modular connectors. They are the type of square or rectangular connectors you will find on phone and Ethernet cables. They were designed as a replacement for screw terminals and hard-wired connections. Can I use these cables outdoors? No, these cables are designed for indoor use only. Will this cable work on my dual line phone system? Yes, this cable is compatible with both single line phone systems using 6P2C wiring (RJ11) and dual line phone systems using 6P4C wiring (RJ14). What does 6P4C connector mean? 6P refers to the number of contact positions in the connector, in this case, six. RJ11, RJ14, and RJ25 connectors all use 6P configurations. 4C refers to the number of contacts actually installed, in this case, four. Having four contacts allows the cable to be used on dual line phone systems.
