Each cable consists of 8 colour coded 24 AWG polyethylene insulated conductors. These are twisted together to form 4 pairs with varying lay lengths.
These pairs are then formed around a central 'X' shaped polyethylene filler. This filler assists in maintaining and enhancing the cable's performance.
Excel Category 6 U/UTP reduced diameter cables are manufactured and tested to the TIA/EIA 568-B.2-1, EN50173-1 and ISO/ IEC 11801 Category 6 specifications.
The print legend on the cable now includes information regarding the DOP number, Test and Classification of the cable for traceability.
As well as reducing waste and accounting easily for cables installed, this innovative print legend finally removes the guesswork from assessing the amount of cable remaining in partly used boxes.
