Modules vs. Keystones

Modules have been the go to product for data installers for a very long time.  Everyone has a punchdown tool in their tool kit and can quickly make off a data cable and pop it into a faceplate.  Everything looks great and you screw the faceplate into place.  Its only when testing that you may discover that one of the IDC connections hasn’t actually punched down correctly, so you unscrew the faceplate, check the connections and remake it.  This adds to the time a job will take and as we all know time is money.

Then along came the Keystone Jack, an RJ45 socket that can be used at a wall outlet or clipped into a 19″ frame to make a patch panel.  Keystones are quick and easy to terminate with no special tools needed.  Separate your pairs, trim the ends with cutters, push the keystone together and its done.  Quick, Easy & Trouble Free.  From experience the only time you need to open a Keystone is if you have miswired and swapped a pair around.  Don’t just take our word for it, try a Keystone and see just how easy they are to use and how quickly you can make them off.
