PowerCat 6A DataGate Shielded Straight and Side Entry Jack


Part No: KSJ-00096-XX

Region: global

The Category 6A DataGate Shielded Jack is a key component of the PowerCat 6A shielded end-to-end solution.

The PowerCat 6A DataGate jack offers superior alien crosstalk suppression, excellent insertion loss, and provides enhanced electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection by utilizing robust die cast zinc alloy jack body housing. This shielded jack also features a unique spring loaded shutter that not only protects it from dust and contaminates, but the ingenious spring loaded design also ejects improperly seated patch cords. The shielded jack is dual color coded for either 568A or 568B wiring schedules.

The PowerCat 6A DataGate Shielded Jack was specifically designed for highspeed 10GB data transmission. This unique modular jack is also backwards compatible with Shielded C6 and C5e systems.

Molex recommends that the full range of PowerCat 6A Shielded products be used in an end-to-end system to maximize cabling performance. This system is compliant with the ISO/IEC 11801 Amd 1 and ANSI/TIA-568.2-D requirements for the support of 10GBASE-T transmission.

Termination Process: Videos

The videos below, created by the Molex Technical Services Team, show the process for terminating cable into a Molex PowerCat 6A DataGate Shielded Straight and Side Entry Jack, p/n KSJ-00096, using a 110 Punchdown tool and a Multipair tool.

Please note: While termination of the jack is possible with the 110 punch-down tool, tight tolerances within the outlet design could result in an unintentional short between the conductor wires and the metal housing. Therefore, Molex strongly recommends the use of the 4-pair termination tool to ensure even, consistent terminations, and minimize the risk of this occurring.
