The EZ80003333 is designed to split a single Cat-5/6 type cable into 4 separate circuits for use with 2-Wire Analog Telephones using the RJ45’s pins 4 & 5. Although it is labeled “ANALOG” on the face of the jacks, because it uses pins 4 & 5, this harness may also be used for any Key or PBX system telephone that uses pins 4 & 5 such as DIGITAL telephone from NEC, Avaya, Toshiba, Nortel, Comdial/Vodavi, etc.
Each EZ80003333 has 1 plug and 4 staggered jacks – with each cord being slightly longer than the other. The shortest cord is ANALOG circuit #1 and the longer cord is ANALOG circuit #4.
You will need 1 EZ80003333 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 EZ80003333 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 Jack #1 and then plug the other end of that patch cord into the Extension Port that uses pins 4 & 5 on the telephone system.
- Repeat Step-2 for circuit #2, 3 & 4 using additional ports on the telephone system.
- Locate the wall jack at the far end of the cable run that the EZ80003333 is plugged into. Plug another EZ80003333 into that wall outlet.
- Plug the first Telephone into Jack #1 (the shortest cord).
- Plug the second, third & forth Telephone into Jacks #2, 3 & 4 (4 is the longest cord).
If you followed the steps as outlined above, both devices will work unless:One or all of the phone system ports are bad or configured improperly on the phone system;
- You are plugged into the wrong port of the Main Patch Panel;
- You are plugged into the wrong RJ45 wall jack outlet;
- One or all of the telephones are bad.
EZCORDS are passive devices, meaning that they have no electronics that could go bad.
