Cat 5 Cable — UTP Ethernet Cable

Our Cat 5 Ethernet Cable is an unshielded, twisted pair network cable that features bare copper conductors. It is also available with a variety of jacket and insulation materials. This cable has outstanding performance characteristics as a network cable in high speed and gigabit ethernet data applications. Our Cat 5 cable is NEMA-rated as a low-loss frequency cable. It is designed for use with ISDN, 10 Base-T, 100 Base VG-AnyLan, 55/155 Mbps ATM, 4/16 Mbps token ring, and voice applications. All of our Cat 5 cables are available in plenum-rated versions as well. Plenum-rated cables have better numbers ending in "CMP."

Category Cables are designed to meet all of your data transmission and computer needs. Our Cat 5 Cables are designed to reduce crosstalk in LAN topologies, routers, and gigabit ethernet systems. Additionally, Cat 5 Cables are backward compatible with many ethernet devices. This network cable is also UL rated for plenum and non-plenum use. This network cable is available with PE, FEP, or PO insulation and PVC jacket. Allied Wire Cable carries an extensive stock of Category Cables, including Cat 6 Cable and Cat 5e Patch cables. Patch cables are ideal for connecting patch panels, ports, and computers. These Ethernet cables reduce crosstalk in even the most advanced applications.
