Flame Retardant RS485 Databus 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 EIA/TIA 485
