MN4100 Ethernet cable

The Ethernet plug will not fit through the cable gland so one will have to be fitted after the Ethernet cable has been passed through the gland and then the plug can be fitted into the camera and the gland tightened up.

Below is two articles showing you how to put the RJ45 plug onto the cable :-

Make sure you have slid the cable gland down onto the Ethernet  cable before you put the plug on. 

The camera Ethernet port auto negotiates so a straight through or cross over lead can be plugged into it. When putting the RJ45 plug on use the straight through (T568B) standard.

What you’ll need:

  • Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) patch cable
  • Modular connector (8P8C plug, aka RJ45)
  • Crimping tool
  • Cable tester (optional, but recommended)
  • et-1
  • There are four pairs of wires in an Ethernet cable, and an Ethernet connector (8P8C) has eight pin slots. Each pin is identified by a number, starting from left to right, with the clip facing away from you.
  • et-2
  • The two standards for wiring Ethernet cables are T568A and T568B. T568B is the most common and is what we’ll be using for our straight Ethernet cable. The tables below show the proper orientation of the coloured wires to the pins.
  • T568A Standard
    Pin 1 White/Green
    Pin 2 Green
    Pin 3 White/Orange
    Pin 4 Blue
Pin 5 White/Blue
Pin 6 Orange
Pin 7 White/Brown
Pin 8 Brown

Step 1: Strip the cable jacket about 1.5 inch down from the end.

et-3

Step 2: Spread the four pairs of twisted wire apart. For Cat 5e, you can use the pull string to strip the jacket farther down if you need to, then cut the pull string. Cat 6 cables have a spine that will also need to be cut.

Step 3: Untwist the wire pairs and neatly align them in the T568B orientation. Be sure not to untwist them any farther down the cable than where the jacket begins; we want to leave as much of the cable twisted as possible.

et-5

Step 4: Cut the wires as straight as possible, about 0.5 inch above the end of the jacket.

Step 5: Carefully insert the wires all the way into the modular connector, making sure that each wire passes through the appropriate guides inside the connector.

Step 6: Push the connector inside the crimping tool and squeeze the crimper all the way down.
