Re: making network cables

You could probably make one of those by hand. use two clips, and attach a beeper. You can send a current through and when the circuit is complete, the beeper will go off. Now that doesn't solve your problem of matching up on the terminals, but it does help.

As long as you trim off enough wire coating to let the wire fit the terminal end. making the crimp is no problem. Also as long as you have the wire for each hole the same on each end. If not for a paid job site, who cares the color.
They do make tools that beep when each end is the same.
had to make network setups in college and it was a blast. The instructor let me help the sighted ones in class, because they messed up to much.

Hello Haden:

I have made a few network cables with sighted help. There is no independent way to figure out the wire colors. Some of the wires have a white stripe, so the blue wire is different from the blue-white wire. Once you get the wires in order and trimmed, it is possible to slip on the plug and crimp it, but a sighted person should look through the plug to check.

Regards,

Robert

Subject: making network cables


Hi all. We are making network cables in a class I am taking. To be specific, they are straight through cables. Can anyone provide any info on how I can do this particularly identifying what color each of the wires are. Is there a factor that will identify it?
Thanks for any help.
Haden
