Flame Retardant CAT6 Data Cables

APPLICATION

Cat6 Cable is a cable standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocol, suitable for 10BaseT,100BaseTx

& 1000BaseT (Gigabit Ethernet) application. 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.

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: 23AWG solid bare copper.

Insulation: HDPE.

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

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

design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.

Cat6 F/UTP: These cables have collective shielding of aluminium/Polyester tape with drain wire.

Cat6 SF/UTP: These cables have double collective shieldings of aluminium/Polyester tape& copper wire braid

with drain wire.
