Please note: While these termination instructions offer a helpful guide, they should always be used alongside current connector system manufacturing instructions for best results.
About the Termination Instructions
These instructions are intended solely for terminating Gore’s Ethernet cables with the plug and socket versions of the Amphenol® µ-Com Connector System. They first detail the tools and materials you’ll need, which include:
- Needle nose pliers, scalpel, tweezer scissors and hand strippers
- Cutters and crimpers (M22520/2-01)
- Positioner (31095)

- Copper foil tape (3M-3313)
- Braid brush
- Insertion/extraction tool (DHK 696)
Preparing the cable and parts, terminating the plug connector (Termination A) and socket connector (Termination B), and closing the connectors are all covered thoroughly with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and photos to help you ensure proper termination.
Performing Required Testing
Before closing the connectors, you should perform all required testing. Gore recommends that you complete the following steps at a minimum. You may be required to complete additional testing by local authorities and/or end-users.
- Verify proper wiring and continuity
- Check for shorts
- Verify accurate assembly length
