25 pair 24 AWG Solid bare Copper Category 5e type ruggedized / tactical "short deployment" armored cable

category 5e tactical armored cable

Category 5e Backbone Cable

  • Components are twisted into pairs with varying left hand lays to minimize crosstalk.
  • The components are cabled around a central filler with a left hand lay and wrapped with a polyester tape, 25% min overlap on tape.

Armored Industrial Ethernet Cables Applications

  • Field deployed communication links for short term, daily, multi-week, multi-month outdoor use (not for permanent outside use)
  • Aramid yarn central strength member for pulling grip / pulling eye installation
  • While not designed for high flex applications, the central filler, polyethylene inner jacket and carbon-black filled PVC or Polyurethane jacket provides robustness for rapid field deployment
  • With IP-68 rated or better connectors, this cable is suitable for field applications for gigabit Ethernet or other transmission protocols up to 100 meters
  • Braided steel armor wire provides cut-through protection
