The EZ80001400 is designed to split a single Cat-5/6 type cable into 2 separate circuits – 1 for use with TCP/IP type devices such as Personal Computers, Servers, Printers, Network Cameras, Network Telephones, Network Storage Devices, Smart TV’s, Game Consoles, etc and the other for use with 4-Wire Electronic Telephones like those used on Key Telephone Systems and many PBX’s.
Each EZ80001400 has 1 plug and 2 jacks, with one jack’s cord slightly shorter than the other. The shorter cord is the TCP/IP Jack and the longer cord is the 4W-TEL Jack.
You will need 1 EZ80001400 wiring harness at each end.
Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. We know this and so we have created a video for each of our cords. If you would like to see how the EZ80001400 is used, simple click here:
- In the Equipment Room, plug the 8-pin, RJ45 plug into the port of the Main Patch Panel that you want to split into separate circuits.
- Insert an Industry Standard, 8-pin patch cord of a length appropriate for your application into the white TCP/IP and then plug the other end of that patch cord into the Ethernet Port on the data switch or router/firewall that you are using.
- Insert an another Industry Standard, 8-pin patch cord of a length appropriate for your application into the yellow 4W-TEL and then plug the other end of that patch cord into the telephone system’s extension port on the Key System or PBX.
- Locate the wall jack at the far end of the cable run that the EZ80001400 is plugged into. Plug another EZ80001400 into that wall outlet.
- Plug the first TCP/IP type device into the white TCP/IP jack (the shorter cord).
- Plug the 4-wite telephone into yellow 4W-TEL jack (the longer cord).
If you followed the steps as outlined above, both devices will work unless:
• The data switch port or the telephone system port is bad or configured improperly;
• You are plugged into the wrong port of the Main Patch Panel;
• You are plugged into the wrong RJ45 wall jack outlet;
• One or both of the end devices are bad.
EZCORDS are passive devices, meaning that they have no electronics that could go bad.
