Product Options



Enhanced unshielded twisted pair (utp) MegaLAN™ cable for use in horizontal cabling systems per TIA/EIA 568-b. The cable exceeds category 5e electrical characteristics and is tested to 400 MHz. The cable consists of #24 Awg solid bare copper insulated conductors, assembled into four tightly twisted pairs, with a ripcord, under an overall jacket. Print includes descending footage markers from 1000 to 0 on each 1000 ft reel or box.

The plenum rated cable is for use in air handling ducts and spaces in accordance with article 800 of the National Electrical Code (NEC).  The cable is UL ( USA) & CUL ( Canada) listed for this application by passing NFPA 262 (FT6 or previously UL 910 Steiner Tunnel) test.

This cable also complies with the EU-ROHS directive 2002/95/EC (restrictions on hazardous substances) regulations.
