Ordering Information

 PE Insulated Category 3 UTP/FTP Cables

Application

The cables are designed for medium frequency data or telephone systems, suitable for indoor or outdoor insulations.

Standards

TIA/EIA-568B

IEC 61156-4

UL-444

ANSI/ICEA S-80-576

Construction

UTP/FTP Cables

UTP/FTP Cables

Conductors

Solid annealed bare copper sized 0.5mm (24 AWG) as per ASTM-B3/class 1 of IEC 60228

Insulation

Solid polyethylene as per ASTM D 1248/IEC 60708

Twisted Pairs

Insulated conductors are twisted into pairs with varying lay length to minimize crosstalk

Cable Core Assembly

The 50-pair cable is composed of 4 units having 12 or 13 pairs each. All other cables are composed of 25-pair units. Units are identified by colour coded binders

Core Wrapping

Non-hygroscopic dielectric tape fully enclosing the core with an overlap

Screen (optional)

An optional Aluminium/Polyester tape placed in contact with solid copper drain wire may be provided as an option

Sheath

PVC or LSZH

Ripcord

Nylon ripcord may be placed parallel to the cores to facilitate sheath removal
