Flame Retardant CAT5e CWB/SWB/SWA Armoured Data Cables

APPLICATION

Cat5E is a cable standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocol, suitable for basic voice and data

installations up to 100 MHz. In addition, these cables can be offered with copper wire braid armoured & flame

retardant outer sheath, providing additional mechanically protection still maintaining the flexibility of the cable.

STANDARDS

Basic design adapted to EN50173

Note: Asterisk ** denotes that the standard compliance is optional, depending on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the cable design.

VOLTAGE RATING

60V

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

Conductors: 24AWG solid bare copper.

Insulation: HDPE.

Twinning: Two coloured insulated conductors twisted together to form a pair.

Inner Sheath: Flame retardant, low smoke and halogen-free polyolefin, coloured black

Armouring:

cwb: copper Wire Braid

swb: Steel Wire Braid

swa: Steel Wire Armour

Outer Sheath: Thermoplastic PVC compound. UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance, anti rodent

and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC

60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the overall cable esign

. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.

Cat5E F/UTP: These cables have collective shielding of aluminium/Polyester tape with drain wire.

Cat5E SF/UTP: These cables have double collective shieldings of aluminium/Polyester tape& copper wire braid.
