Belden AX101046 - PS5 + Giga Flex Keystone Jack MDVO Style, Cat.5E black
 
Description:
   The GigaFlex PS5E Module is a new punch down UTP connector within the Modular Connectivity product line. The GigaFlex PS5E Module is based on a patent-pending Encapsulated Lead Frame technology ensuring excellent long term reliability as well as extremely stable transmission performance. The unique in-line IDC termination interface allows quick and easy installation using GigaFlex, BIX, 110 or Krone connecting tools. The GigaFlex PS5E is the module of choice for terminating UTP cables into the MediaFlex and Interface Outlet Series. It can also be mixed and matched with a wide variety of MDVO adapters, boxes and patch panels to suit practically any installation configuration for workstation outlet, consolidation point and telecommunications room applications. The PS5E-rated performance exceeds all requirements specified in the TIA/EIA-568-A Category 5e Addendum. All performance parameters including NEXT, FEXT, attenuation and return loss have been set to guarantee transmission performance up to 160 MHz. The GigaFlex PS5E is designed to be used with the IBDN Plus Cabling System and the IBDN System 1200.

INSTALLATION TIPS
Connector Assembly
 • Use the GigaFlex Termination Station (AX101172) for better support during termination process
 • Follow the color-coding sequence printed on the back of the module to position twisted pairs prior to termination
 • Use the cable jacket to protect the twisted pairs during termination
 • Use either GigaFlex, BIX, 110 or Krone connecting tools to terminate the module
 • Snap protective cap onto the back of the module to strain relieve the conductors after termination
 • Installation Guide is supplied with each box of 50 modules and is available in the "Document Center" of NORDX/CDT's Web Site.
Connector Maintenance
 • Use the Outlet release tool or a standard screwdriver to disassemble the module from its mounting hardware or to remove the protective cap for re-termination.
