High Performance CAT6a/STP Cabling – 1,000 ft. Spool (Non Plenum Blue)
Key Features:
  • Applications: HDBaseT®, 10GBaseT, 1GBase-T, 100Base-T; 10Base-T
  • Twisted Pairs: 4 individually aluminum-foil screened & overall braid-shielded to an S/FTP form
  • Link Channel Bandwidth: 500 MHz
  • Standards: CAT6A as described in ANSI/TIA-568-C.1. and ISO/IEC 11801, 2nd Ed
  • Supported distance: 100 m (330 feet) for 10GBaseT networking, 121 m (400 feet) for HDBaseT
  • Conductor Size: 23 AWG Bare Copper
  • Internal Shield Material: Aluminum-Mylar Tape
  • Overall Shield Material: Tinned-Copper Braid
  • Conductor Color Code: Standard
  • Total Wires: 8
  • Diameter: 7.20 mm or 0.28346 in
  • Designed to work with: Key Digital® Digital IQ Series™ HDBT/HDMI via CAT6a Matrix Switchers and FatCAT Series™ Extenders to ensure improved syncing / stable signals
  • Strain-relief neck: Acts as drain-wire connectivity point
  • 2-piece connector: Includes plastic insert for each wire in respective standard
  • Utilize: Reliable long distance HD video signals and up to 10GBaseT networks
  • Future-proofs: Any LAN installation by ensuring high-performance voice, data, video and security capabilities for cabling in noisy environment
  • Category CAT6a: defined at link frequencies up to 500 MHz
    • Category CAT6a performs at improved specifications, in particular in the area of alien crosstalk as compared to CAT6 UTP (unshielded twisted pair), which exhibited high alien noise in high frequencies.
    • When used for 10/100/1G/10GBASE-T, the maximum allowed length of a CAT6a cable is 100 meters or 328 feet. This consists of 90 meters (300 ft.) of solid "horizontal" cabling between the patch panel and the wall jack, plus 10 meters (33 ft.) of stranded patch cable between each jack and the attached device. Since stranded cable has higher attenuation than solid cable, exceeding 10 meters of patch cabling will reduce the permissible length of horizontal cable. When used with Key Digital HDBaseT Switchers or/and extenders the maximum allowed length is 121 meters or 400 feet.
    • Works great in hostile alien crosstalk environment, such as when many cables are bundled together. However, because the effects of alien crosstalk environments on cables are difficult to determine prior to installation, it is highly recommended that all CAT6a cables used for 10GBASE-T be electrically tested once installed. With its improved specifications, CAT6a does not have this limitation and can run 10GBASE-T at 100 meters (330 ft.) without electronic testing
