Wired Home WHIRJ-KJ 3.5mm 3-Conductor / Stereo Keystone Jack
Wired Home WHIRJ-KJ 3.5mm 3-Conductor / Stereo Keystone Jack is rated 3.4286 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great!I'm running a 40ft CAT6 cable and took the brown,white/brown and blue cables (not used by ethernet) and hooked up this adapter without any problems. Now I have ethernet and infrared running in the same cable. I connected brown to the ground port, white/brown to the 12v port & blue to the signal port and it works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wired Home WHIRJ-KJ 3.5mm 3-Conductor / Stereo Keystone JackJust what the doctor ordered, worked great had to tin wire for good contact but besides that worked perfect. Used these conectors to patch through basement for IR repeater. I bought qty of 4.Thanks PE

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad spring connectionsI got 2 of these for IR Targets, with CAT5 cable. The spring connections are very unreliable, I spent hours troubleshooting intermittent failures. The +V to Gnd lines even measured 1 ohm resistance! I replaced with Keystone blanks, drilled hole for standard stereo jacks, worked perfectly and cheap. The time to solder much less than time shot troubleshooting these DOGS!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another wiring setupBetter documentation would go a LONG way towards determining how to setup this jack, with a minimum of pain.Like a few of the other reviewers, I had to experiment in order to get my wiring configured properly.My end result at mapping out the connections looks more like SimonRage's than Steve's, though I half wonder if that isn't because there are variations in different production batches of this jack:+/L = Tip-/G = RingS/R = Collar/SleeveI'm using the Channel Vision IR-1200 Simple Hub at the jack (with an M-to-M extender), a Wired Home WHIREB IR Blaster for the emitter, and a Wired Home WHIR2005 for the receiver, tied in at the far end of a 15 foot run of three-conductor wire.Works great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wiring for IRLike the other reviewers I also wanted to use this item for hooking up Xantech IR targets and to distribute signal from the IR home run to expansion connecting blocks. I used a stereo mini plug wire and sorted out the labeling by continuity check:+/L = Tip-/G = SleeveS/R = RingI think the confusion comes from Xantech switching wiring codes for newer 291-00 models. The ground and 12V are opposite depending on the color of your target's wire insulation. See the 291-10 product docs. Older black insulator wiring is Red = Ground, White = Signal and Black = 12V. Newer models with red insulated are Black = Ground, White = Signal and Red = 12V. Hope this helps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from okThe user above is correct with the wiring for xantech products. Other wise it works as described.

How to terminate?

I have a cat6 cable that I'd like to use with this connector. Do I strip the ends off first exposing the copper or just stick one of the conductors into it and push down?
Asked by: synthoid
Using Cat-5/5E wire the device has spring connect terminals. First you would strip about 1/8" of the wire.It also has a standard 3.5 mm audio jack.

Can I get a wiring diagram for the inside of the jack itself? My IR receiver isnt working I wanted to adjust my terminations to this jack.

I've used these in the past. Just have a weird install I am trying to troubleshoot. need to make sure the male and female connectors use the same wiring structure.
Asked by: Mojojojo
This device will follow a standard TRS (tip, ring, sleeve) configuration. I've included a diagram below for your reference.
