Category 5 Enhance cable (Cat5e cable) is most widely used in our daily life,especially for home and office or outdoor networking .The cable standard supports transfer rates up to 100 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX(Fast Ethernet), and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet) .However,people found that regular(round) cat5e cable is too bulky as a rat and not convenient sometimes.So flat Cat5e Cable was developed in time. It fits under carpet or baseboard without you knowing it is there! As long as the cable has been tested and conforms to the CAT5e standard ,then the only difference will be its appearance. one is flat and the other is round.
There are two types of flat cat5e cable,Unshielded (UTP) and Shielded (STP) Twisted Paris Cable.
Flat CAT5e UTP Cable: Flat CAT5e UTP Cable diameter thickness is 1.0×4.0mm with 32AWG stranded bare copper conductor or flexibility – great for frequent changes that occur at the wall outlet or patch panel baseboard,it do have various diameter like 1.4×6.0mm,or 1.5×7.5mm etc. Flat CAT5e Cable goes prefect performance as pass Fluke CAT5e UTP Channel test and Fluke CAT5e UTP Patch Cord test. One of the major merits to UTP is the ease of use. Because of its high flexibility slim and easy to extensive.
Flat CAT5e STP Cable: Flat CAT5e STP Cable diameter is 2.2×7.2mm with aluminium foil shielded twisted pairs.The obvious advantages to STP is EMI&RFI and crosstalk reduction . If the cable needs to be run on a factory floor near machinery, then STP is the right choice, since it helps eliminate EMI (ElectroMagnetic Interference); It is also the perfect cable to use in mission-critical applications, since it keeps the signal that is being carried over the wire from leaking out.
Flat CAT5e Cable Advantages:
Flat CAT5e cable appearance may be almost unobtrusive if run under a rug or carpet or along a dado rail and be almost invisible. Highly recommended for those who can’t drill holes in their walls and floors to feed cables through the house!
we make no compromises on quality to ensure you receive great performance Ethernet cable .Copper Conductors are wired to gold plated RJ45 plugs in order to deliver optimum conductivity while eliminating signal loss due to oxidation or corrosion.
Most Flat CAT5e cable is connect with PC,desktop, STB, set top box, IPTV, CCTV,video game,router,switchboard,keystone, patch panel,wall outlets etc.it is convenient get such flat cat5e cable in your back bag for business trip or for your laptop when you going out which only take a little space.
Once you got flat,you’ll never go back!
