  • More Info

    When used in a home distribution panel, all the wires overlapping each other can sometimes get snagged upon removal. When a regular cable's RJ-45 clip gets caught on other wires, it can easily break off when removed from the cabinet. The Cat. 5e (350 MHz-Rated) Patch Cable features molded boot fittings, which not only adds strain relief to the cable but also covers the clip, allowing the cable to be removed from these sometimes-cluttered places with ease. This feature makes these cables ideal for networking and home automation use.

    A stranded patch cable is made up of multiple wires, each of which has several strands of small copper wires within the insulation sleeve. Stranded cables are more flexible than solid conductor cables, which make them ideal for connecting between components. This construction is great for the flexing and the frequent changes that occur at the wall outlet or patch panel. Stranded conductors do not transmit data signals as far as solid cable.

    This patch cord accommodates both T568A and T568B wiring applications and can be used for all types of networking, voice, and even video applications (using baluns, sold separately). It is approved for use with10Base-T, 100Base-T, 1000Base-T, and Token Ring-type 3 network cards and hubs. The Cat. 5e (350 MHz-Rated) Patch Cable is fully compliant with the Cat. 5e specification and exceeds the requirements of Ethernet IEEE 802.3ab and Token Ring UTP IEEE 205.5.

    While this cable is made to handle data rates up to 1 gigabit per second, it will easily handle slower data rates and is excellent for voice usage. Cables are available in various lengths, including 8 inches and 24 inches (sold separately).
