Title: Modular telecommunication jack-type connector with crosstalk reduction

Abstract: A modular telecommunication jack comprising contact terminals and a crosstalk compensation arrangement. The crosstalk compensation arrangement is constituted by parallel metallic plates (P4, P6) connected to a spring beam contact portion (S4, S6) of the terminals and allowed to slide in grooves (G4, G6) of the housing (5) of the jack according to the displacement of the contact portions. The crosstalk compensation arrangement is thus located very close to the contact point between the terminals of the jack and of the plug connected thereto. This location is optimal for reaching the Category 5 and even the Category 6 specification.
