CANFORD CAT5E-F CAT 5E DATA CABLE Stranded conductor, screened - Deployable

4 items

Increasing use of network and data cables between audio and video devices on location calls for a Category 5E cable that is designed specifically for deployable use. Basic Category 5E F/UTP is a relatively inflexible installation cable, and even the slightly more flexible patchcord type still has very poor handling characteristics. This Category 5E cable has been designed specifically for the professional audio and video user, and is intended to handle like a typical microphone cable. It has an extra-flexible four-pair core structure, that maintains Category 5E performance, a foil screen, then a special soft PVC composite material outer jacket, to give superb flexibility and handling characteristics.

It is suitable for use with both standard RJ45 connectors (round entry version), the Neutrik Ethercon and most other ruggedised RJ45 designs, or any other connector with a suitably sized entry gland.

The cable is also suitable for DMX512 applications.

“Category 5E” is a computer industry 100 ohm specification, suitable for both AES/EBU digital audio and computer LAN traffic up to 1 Gbit/s. The maximum recommended run length for full Category 5E data performance is defined by the Category 5E specification as 95 metres, but for other digital and analogue applications, runs of up to 800 metres are possible. “F/UTP” denotes “overall foil screened twisted pair”, and is an industry standard abbreviation.
