Uses - This premium cable is commonly used for networking and AV installations. It can be cut to length and fitted with 8P8C FTP connectors (also called CAT6a RJ45 FTP), the standard PC networking connector. If you plan to fit these yours. Each twisted pair within has its own 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 that are shielded.

Available in the following lengths – 305m, 100m, 50m & 25m

PLEASE NOTEStandard CAT5 RJ45 connectors will NOT fit this cable, you will need CAT6a (or CAT6 at a push) connectors. 100m, 50m & 25m lengths may not be supplied on a reel.

Made From - Pure copper conductors, this cable has been tested and is certified to the CAT6a specification and is perfectly fine for use over longer distances. It is also compatible with CAT6, CAT5e and CAT5 applications.

Outdoor protection - This particular variation on CAT6a cable is designed for outdoor usage, and as a result, comes with high density polyethylene insulation, designed to offer the core protection from cold and damp conditions. Should the cable be exposed to sunlight, the insulation is also UV resistant, where standard PVC insulation would decay. This layer of insulation also means this cable is more suitable for being installed in the ground. The inner conductors are covered in gel to increases the cables resistance to water.

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.

Standards - ROHS Compliant
