Category 5e FTP Reel Cable - Pure Copper

Uses - This cable is commonly used for networking and AV installations. It can be cut to length and fitted with 8P8C FTP connectors (also called RJ45 FTP), the standard PC networking connector. If you plan to fit these yourself, you will also need a CAT5 crimping tool, which we also supply. The cable has a foil shield which helps in areas where there is a lot of interference, to make sure the shield is utilised, please make sure your RJ45 sockets are shielded too.

Made From - Pure copper conductors, this cable has been tested and is certified to CAT5e specification so is fine for use over longer distances.

Colour - Grey

Ease of Use - To make measuring easy the cable is marked at 1 metre intervals.

Wiring – Depending on the application in which you hope to use it, the cable can be wired in both the ‘straight through’ or ‘cross-over’ configurations.

'Cross over' cables are usually used for connecting 2 computers directly to one another, without the use of a Hub or Router. They use 568-A wiring at one end, and 568-B at the other.

'Straight through' cables can be used for connecting a PC or games console to a Hub/Router, or, in conjunction with AV extender devices, for audio and video distribution throughout a home or commercial project. To create a 'straight through' cable, it should be wired using the same wiring variant at both ends. Either ‘568-A to 568-A’ or ‘568-B to 568-B’

Variants

– The 2 wiring configurations for CAT5/CAT6 cable. TIA/EIA-568-A & TIA/EIA-568-B. have no technical differences between them. However, they connect the wires to the connector in a different order, as shown in the wiring diagram above.
