Video Description

Rj11 vs. Rj45 In this lesson we introduce you to the two types of twisted pair cabling connectors, Rj11 and Rj45 and examine the differences between the two. You'll see example of what each cables pin connectors look like, learn how they function, what the obvious differences are in their physical design and capabilities, and which one actually carries electricity and why. We'll discuss where each cable and pin connector is used, why they use is not transferable, which has power going thru and how to correctly handle when making repairs to them

are two popular types of twisted pair cabling are going to be our r J 11 and R R J 45 now with R R. J 11. This is going to be a six pen to wire cable that we see now Maur four phone lines. They can still transmit Internet We're using saying modem, and

now we're using

Internet connection over a phone line. But this is what they look like. The small R J 11 cable the connector with the clip on top and six pins and our two wires share These can carry electricity. You may notice that when you plug a phone into your phone, Jack,

they don't require to have an additional power outlet. That's because those are J 11 cables can have power going through them. Nasty reminder. When you bite into one and you get a little shock so you want to be careful when you're stripping those cables, you don't just go at it with your teeth, especially if they're already plugged in on the other end. Because they are, they do have a small current going through them. We also have R J.

five cables are R J. 45 cabling is actually an eight wire, eight connector cable. We have bundles of a twisted wires here on R R J 45 versus our smaller R J 11 cable. We can see how the two are very different as faras, which can fit into which
