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 are with copper wire braid armoured &

flame retardant mud resistant outer sheath, providing additional mechanically protection still maintaining the

flexibility of the cable.

Standards

Basic design to EN50173
