There is a maximum amount of untwist you can go before problems happen, and that is 0.50 inch. That means the maximum you can untwist that pair is 0.50 inch from the last twist in the pair to where the wire makes actual electrical contact.

What is the maximum amount you should untwist twisted pair wires before inserting them into connectors?

When connecting jacks and plugs, do not untwist the cable more than 0.5 inches for Category 5e, 6 and 6A cable. Helpful Hint: A half of an inch of an untwisted wire pair results in 1.5 dB of near-end crosstalk.

When terminating a Cat5e cable how much of the wire can be untwisted?

When connecting jacks and plugs, do not untwist the cable more than 0.5 inches for Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6a cable.

Should I use rj45 A or B?

Although T568B is the most widely used, the T568A wiring scheme is seen as the better wiring scheme for RJ45 modular plugs because it provides reverse compatibility to not only one, but also two-pair USOC wiring setups. If you are installing in a residential setting, use T568A, except when other situations apply.

How much is too much twisted pair untwisting?

As you’ve said, the twists are there to reject interference on the pairs. Installation requirements get tighter with the increase of category standard, so I think you can safely go with the quotes in that link of yours. Cat5 at 13mm max. ISTR that Cat5E is 10mm, but deffo the less the better.

How big is a Cat5 twisted pair untwisting?

Cat5 at 13mm max. ISTR that Cat5E is 10mm, but deffo the less the better. Is your electrician trained in network cable termination, or an electrician that thinks ‘cable is just cable…?’ If any of my subbies had terminated UTP cable like that, they wouldn’t be getting paid, (or used again.)

Can a twisted pair of Ethernet be untwisted?

I have always understood that termination of ethernet twisted pair (U/UTP CAT6 in this case) should have as little stripping/untwisting as possible, i.e. the stripping of the cable jacket should be minimal, and pairs kept twisted as far as possible right up to termination.

Is it OK to untwist a cat6 socket?

I have queried the decision by our electrician to strip a good 100mm of the outer sheath and untwist the pairs terminating into a rackmounted patchbank (pic below, domestic/26 sockets), his reply was along the lines of – “as long as no copper is exposed and there are no sharp bends, there is not an issue”.
