Excel Category 6A Screened (U/FTP) Cable takes the performance capabilities of copper infrastructure to new levels. The cable has been designed to exceed the ISO/IEC, TIA and CENELEC for Category 6A/Augmented Category 6 component requirements. This delivers Class EA/ Augmented Category 6 link performance over distances of up 90 metres which supports the applications including 10GBASE‐T, 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
Each cable consists of two sets of two pairs are wrapped together in an "S" configuration with high quality, strong, aluminium/polyester foil tape providing screening for each pair. The ""S"" Foil configuration ensures separation of the pairs that ensures the performance. The individual pairs are set to different lay lengths to ensure optimum performance.
The print legend on the cable now includes information regarding the DOP number, Test and Classification of the cable for traceability.
