This special version of Canford's CAT5E-F flexible Cat5E cable has a polyurethane outer jacket providing greater abrasion resistance (but slightly less flexibility) than the PVC on the standard design. Otherwise it is a similar F/UTP construction.
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.
Note: The jacket on this cable is "pressure extruded" so minimises the amount of polyurethane material needed and thus keeps costs down. It therefore does not have a smooth outer profile. For a Cat5E cable with polyurethane jacket and a smooth, round profile, see 31-948 CAT5E-R (this is a double screened SF/UTP design).
The cable is also suitable for DMX512 applications. The greater heat tolerance of polyurethane may be useful.
