Product Overview
The Excel Category 6A Screened Keystone Jack, is a toolless termination RJ45 socket suitable for mounting in range of housings from patch panels, faceplates and shutters to sub floor boxes, and work area distribution enclosures. The socket itself is housed in a high quality zinc die cast housing, which opens a the rear in a butterfly manner to reveal the IDC termination points. Once the conductors of the cable to be terminated are fed into a management cap the process is completed by snapping the 'butterfly wings' together with minimal, but firm pressure. A choice of Patch Panel frames with either 16 or 24 port density in both black and chrome are available.

Performance Overview
The Excel Category 6A keystone jack is designed and manufactured to comply with the channel requirements of Augmented Category 6/Class EA specifications as defined in ISO 11801 2nd edition amend 1.1, and ANSI/ TIA-568-C.1 standards. A range of performance characteristics are tested up to 500Mhz including return loss, attenuation, and near end cross talk (NEXT) and far end cross talk (FEXT). Both worst case and power sum test methods are applied. The product design incorporates staggered 50 micron plated contact pins within the jack to ensure optimum performance levels are achieved, the die cast housing around the terminated pairs ensures Alien Crosstalk is minimised. Support of emerging applications such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet is guaranteed over channel distances of upto 100 metres. The keystone jack is fully interoperable and backward compatible with Category 5e and Category 6 products.

Electrical performance meets or exceeds channel requirements as defined in the latest Category 6A, specification documents, ISO/IEC 11801: 2002 Class EA amendment, and TIA-568-B.2-10, when installed with Excel Category 6A cable.

System Warranty
When installed with Excel Category 6A Cables by an accredited Excel Cabling Partner this product is supported by a comprehensive 25 year product and applications warranty.

Please note that this Excel keystone jack is only to be used with RJ45 FCC compliant plugs. It is designed for use with 8 pin RJ45 plugs which comply with the IEC 60603-7 standard. They are not designed for use with RJ11 plugs or LJ6 plugs.

Use of plugs which are not compliant with the IEC 60603-7 standard for RJ45 connectors may result in physical damage to the pins inside the keystone jack.

When testing, Excel recommends Fluke DTX1800 with PLA002 test adaptor. Please ensure that the test head connector being used is not damaged and that the number of circuits tested with this test head has not exceeded the manufacturer's recommendations.
