A 110 block is a type of punch block used to connect sets of wires in a structured cabling system. The "110" designation is also used to describe a type of insulation-displacement connector used to terminate twisted pair cables which uses a similar punch-down tool as the older 66 block. It is available in two varieties: pairwise connections, with each row containing two electrically connected terminals (the left two and the right two); and rowwise connections, with each row of four terminals all tied together. This option must be specified when ordering.
Famous quotes containing the word block:
“The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem.... I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists.”
—Marcel Duchamp (18871968)
