If you need a solid, affordable cable for your office network configuration, CablesPlus USA provides a wide variety of Cat5E Ethernet Network Cables that provide a reliable, budget-conscious solution to all your needs. Cat5E supports Gigabit Ethernet for up to 100 meters at 100Mhz, making it a significant leap from standard Cat5 technology.
Our Cat5E cables feature crosstalk prevention for blocking out potential interference from outside signal noise. Choose from an array of lengths and colors to best suit the needs of your networking configuration.
Shaxon Category 5e patch cables feature molded boots with a bump design for protecting the clip during usage and stranded wire for repeated flexing and movement without micro-cracking of the copper. Our cables use a short body plug design that minimizes de-twisting of the pairs during the manufacturing process, assuring the highest available performance and employ a flush boot that allows the cables to fit side by side in high density patch fields.
Category 5e cable is used in structured cabling for computer networks. The cable standard provides performance of up to 100 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-T, and 1000BASE-T for distances of up to 100 meters.
Network cabling standards are used internationally and are published by ISO/IEC, CENELEC and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). Since 1995, solid-conductor UTP cables for backbone cabling is required to be no thicker than 22 AWG and no thinner than 24 AWG, or 26 AWG for shorter-distance cabling.
SHIELDED TWISTED PAIR
Shielded Cat 5e, Cat 6/6A, and Cat 8/8.1 cables typically have F/UTP construction, while shielded Cat 7/7A and Cat 8.2 cables use S/FTP construction.
Overall shield (F/UTP, S/UTP, and SF/UTP)
Overall foil, braided shield or braiding with foil across all the pairs within the 100 ohm twisted pair cable. Common names: foiled twisted pair, shielded twisted pair, screened twisted pair. This type of shielding helps prevent EMI from entering or exiting the cable.
Individual and overall shield (F/FTP, S/FTP, and SF/FTP)
Individual shielding using foil between the twisted pair sets, and an outer foil or braided shielding. Common names: fully shielded twisted pair, screened foiled twisted pair, shielded foiled twisted pair, screened shielded twisted pair, shielded screened twisted pair. This type of shielding helps prevent EMI from entering or exiting the cable and protects neighboring pairs from crosstalk.
POWER OVER ETHERNET (POE)
POE describes any of sever standard or ad-hoc system which pass electric power along with data on twisted pair Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electric power to devices such as wireless network components, IP cameras, and VoIP phones.
The IEEE standards for PoE require category 5 or greater cable or better for high power levels but will allow using category 3 cable if less power is required.
