Title: Wire spacers for connecting cables to connectors

Abstract: An electrical connector has a connector body with a cable cavity at its cable connection end and a strain relief coupled to the connector body adjacent the cable connection end. The strain relief extends into the cable cavity. A wire spacer is mounted in the cable cavity adjacent to strain relief. This spacer has a central core and four radially outwardly projecting flanges. The flanges are angular spaced from one another by angles of substantially 90 degrees. The spacer maintains separation of twisted wired pairs in a cable which is secured to the connector by the strain relief to enhance the electrical performance of the connector.
