Application and Installation Instructions for Voice/Data Splitters

What they do: A pair of Voice/Data splitters will enable you to utilize a single Cat 5E cable run which would ordinarily only handle a single 10/100 Base Ethernet connection for the addition of a telephone.

Here is a normal situation where a Cat 5E cable run is utilized for connection of a single computer to the network with no telephone:



In this scenario, the Office Manager needed to get a new telephone at that location in a hurry. Instead of running a new cable, they utilized a pair of our Voice/Data Splitters to provide a new communication path for the phone over the existing Network cable:




Instructions:
1) Find out the number of the cable run and locate the corresponding Patch Panel port. There should be a single patch cable going from that port to a single router port.
2) Unplug the patch cable at the patch panel and replace it with one of the two splitters by plugging the male end of the splitter into the patch panel port.
3) Connect the data port on the splitter to a port on the router/switch using a patch cable.
4) Connect the phone port of the splitter to the telephone source using a telephone patch cable.
5) Go to the wall outlet at the user location and unplug the single patch cable and replace it with the other splitter. Plug the computer onto the data side of the splitter using patch cable. Plug the telephone into the phone port of the splitter.

NOTE: For applications where the cable which is installed in the walls and ceiling is terminated with a male plug (instead of a female socket as found on patch panels and wall outlets), you will need a Female/Female coupler (in RELATED PRODUCTS section for these spitters) for each male end to connect the splitter to.
