Analog port wiring issues

I seem to have problems all the time going from a VICX-FXS/DID or a VICX-FXO card over to house wiring on 66 blocks.  One of my technicians said it is because of the thin wiring and recommended going to a RJ 15 patch panel.  Does anyone else have this problem?  What is the "best" way of wiring to these ports?

"Thin wiring" ???

You crimp a connector and go from router to any type of punch block with any AWG cable you like. There is no issue whatsoever.

Hi Errin,

Just to add a little more to Paolo's good info (+5 "P")

This is pretty common when working with a way to transition from

standard "Silver Satin" telephone cables to any type of Bix,110 or R66

cross-connect blocks. Like you've seen the "braided" wire inside a telephone

cord is not really meant to be punched down on any type of block. So you can

set up a transition point like your tech suggested, which will work well because

you will have thin/braided cable going in and a copper 24/26 AWG coming out

which can be punched down reliably. You can also get the proper type of crimper

and copper wire plugs and make your own cables to go directly from the

VICX-FXS/DID or a VICX-FXO cards over to the building cross-connect panels.

Either way you win
