From the appearance, it seems that there is no difference between the cat5e types of registered jack and cat6 types of registered jack. Some customers have asked the staff of Weikang whether the two types of registered jack can be used? In fact, there are differences in their internal structure.

       Although the size and specifications of the two registered jack are the same, the eight contacts (metal pieces) in the Cat6 of registered jack are staggered up and down into two rows, while the eight contacts in the cat5 of registered jackare one word. Line up.

       The copper core of the cat5e network cable is relatively thin, about 0.45-0.51mm; the copper core of the cat6 network cable is relatively thick, about 0.52-0.58mm. This directly leads to the difference in the internal structure of the two registered jack.

       There are two uniform international standard connection methods for the network cable registered jack: TIA/EIA 568A and TIA/EIA568B.

       568A standard: green and white, green, orange and white, blue, blue and white, orange, brown and white, brown

       568B standard: orange and white, orange, green and white, blue, blue and white, green, brown and white, brown
