Category 5 (Cat5e) Enhanced high speed cabling is a pre-requisite for today's performance demanding Ethernet and gigabit networks. Networx™ will keep you at the head of the pack with this high performance 350Mhz CAT5e
Patch Cable. Networx™ 350 MHz Enhanced Cat5e Network patch cables can easily handle bandwidth intensive applications and they are UL certified patch cables that meet all the TIA/EIA standards. This Networx™ Patch Cable
is well constructed using 350 MHz Enhanced Cat5e bulk cable, which consists of 4 unshielded twisted pairs, 24 AWG. stranded conductors, and a durable rich colored PVC jacket. This non-booted Enhanced Cat5e cable is terminated with short body Cat5e RJ45
modular connectors, which are staggered to ensure the reduction of NEXT Interference and boost performance. The eight gold contacts are plated with 50 microns of gold plating and provide superior conductivity. Our molded, snag less boot prevents unwanted cable snags during installation/maintenance processes plus provides extra strain-relief.
Cat 5 e cable is an enhanced version of Cat 5 that adds specifications for far end crosstalk. It was formally defined in 2001 as the TIA/EIA-568-B standard, which no longer recognizes the original Cat 5 specification. Although 1000BASE-T was designed for use with Cat 6 cable, the tighter specifications associated with Cat 5e cable and connectors make it an excellent choice for use with 1000BASE-T ethernet networks.
The 8 Position 8 Contact (8P8C) (often called RJ45) plugs and sockets are most regularly used as an ethernet connector. 8P8C connectors are typically used to terminate twisted pair cable.
A patch cable or patch cord (sometimes patchcable or patchcord) is an electrical or optical cable, used to connect ("patch-in") one electronic or optical device to another for signal routing. Devices of different types (ie: a switch connected to a computer, or switch to router) are connected with patch cords. Patch cords are usually produced in many different colours so as to be easily distinguishable, and are relatively short, perhaps no longer than two metres. Types of patch cords include microphone cables, headphone extension cables, XLR connector, RCA connector and 1/4" TRS connector cables (as well as modular ethernet cables), and thicker, hose-like cords (snake cable) used to carry video or amplified signals. However, patch cords typically only refer to those short ones used with patch panels.
