Q: What are the terms 4P4C 6P4C and 6P6C referring to?

4P4C: 4 Position 4 Conductor (RJ22) - used for Telephone Handset cables.

6P4C: 6 Position 4 Conductor (RJ11) - used for ADSL telephone and modem cables.

6P6C: 6 Position 6 Conductor (RJ12) - used in System phones.

Q: How do I tell if a plug accepts flat or round cable?

Looking at the back of the plug where the cable would insert it will either have an oval shape or a rectangular shape. The rectangular shape accepts flat cable. The oval shape accepts round cable.

Q: What is an RJ45 connector used for?

An RJ45 also named 8P8C connector is most commonly used in network and telecommunication applications. It can also be used for other data type communications such as serial.

Q: What is the difference between a solid and stranded connector?

A solid RJ45 connector has 3 teeth that pinch the solid wire to ensure good contact. A stranded RJ45 connector contains 2 teeth that bite the strands to hold the wire in place. Stranded is typically used when you are making your own patch cables.
