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 riser (non-plenum) rated cable is for use as a vertical run in a shaft and for general purpose communications use in accordance with article 800 of the NEC.  The cable is ETL ( USA) & CETL ( Canada) listed for this application by passing UL 1666 riser cable flammability Test. The cable also passes the CSA FT4 vertical flame test - cables in cable trough from clause 4.11.4 of CSA C22.2 no. 0.3.

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