Each cable consists of 8 colour coded 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, which assists in maintaining and enhancing the cable performance.
Excel Category 6 Unscreened LSOH 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.
