CAT 6 Cabling
Cat 6 Cable
Plenum Wire and Riser Communications Cable

Cat 6 Cable Applications:

  • Cat 6 cable is used in support current and next generation applications utilizing 25 MHz bandwidth. Typically Cat 6 cabling exhibits 27 dB better PSACR @ 100 MHz as compared to Cat 5e. Cat 6 cabling is fully backward compatible with Cat5e cable and Cat5e cable connectors.
  • Plenum cat 6 cable and riser cat 6 cabling available for either plenum or riser installation. Riser cables feature polyethylene insulation while plenum versions use fluoropolymer insulation. Both types feature UV and oil-resistant jacketing, but plenum constructions are also low-smoke.

Cat 6 Cable Compliances and Industry Approvals:

  • ETL verified to meet/exceed TIA/EIA-568-B.2-1 (Category 6)
  • ISO/IEC 11801
  • Plenum wire meets CMP, FT-6
  • Riser meets CMR, FT-4

Cat 6 Cable Ratings:

  • NEC Ratings:
    • Plenum Wire: CMP/MPP
    • Riser Wire: CMR/MPR
  • Maximum Temperature Rating: 60°C

Cat 6 Cable Materials and Construction:

  • Conductor:
    • Plenum/Riser: 24 AWG solid bare copper (previously 23 AWG)
  • Insulation:
    • Plenum Wire: Fluoropolymer
    • Riser Wire: Polyethylene
  • Jacket:
    • Plenum Wire: UV and oil resistant low-smoke PVC jacket
    • Riser Wire: Specially formulated UV and oil resistant PVC jacket
