For serial printers, terminals, modems, POS and other serial equipment
Using modular adapters with inexpensive silver satin or flat oval twisted pair wire has become a popular way to run client server applications. Needing to connect dumb terminals on the desktop back to a central patch panel or directly to a MUX via RS232, many network planners have implemented modular adapters as the most cost effective way to complete the connections. Whether used in a wiring closet or throughout the office, color-coded modular adapters lend easy identification and differentiation to your cable plan. By color coding your connections, you cut down on troubleshooting time while taking full advantage of the benefits of this modular adapter approach. These modular adapters are not functional until they are assembled. There is not a universal way to assemble them, so contact your hardware manufacturer for details.
