| 25 pin connector|
|I have to run a 25 pair cable for a phone system.I bought a puch down block with a 25 pin connector already installed. Is there a standard wiring for this connector so I can puch down the other end without trying to tone them all?This is about a 600 ft run? Thanks |

The RJ21 connectors (Telco 25 pair) are not field installable (without a specialized "butterfly" tool that will set you back couple hundred $) What you have to do is to purchase a 25-pair cable terminated on both ends with matching gender of Telco and plug it between the phone system and the pre-terminated block (66-type?) The near end of the cable you will punch down onto the other side of the pre-terminated block. Then you need one empty block for the other end of that cable. The far end of the 600ft cable you will punch down on the empty block.
