Cat 5E Cable

Cat 5E Cable

Available Colours:

Cat 5e cable refers to the Category 5 Enhanced cabling standard for networks and performs up to 100MHZ.

These backwards-compatible data cables are used in Gigabit ethernet and other networking applications.

Each cable consists of 8 colour coded polyethylene insulated conductors. These are twisted together to form 4 pairs with varying lay lengths. These pairs, together with a strong nylon rip cord are jacketed in the required sheath material.

We also stock a Fire-Resistant version of our Cat 5e cable.
