Flexible Category 6A 10Gb/s Tactical SF/STP

 

CN424C6ASTFS

Rugged and Tactical Construction - designed for hostile environment applications

ETL Verified to TIA-568-C.2 Cat6A - tested and verified to TIA standards

10G Ethernet - delivers precision electrical performance for 10Gb/s data transmission

Stranded Conductors - improves flexibility and flex-life

Overall Shield - provides additional RF/EMI protection from external interference

Flexible TPE Jacket - flexible, rugged, and abrasion resistant

The CN424C6ASTFS is a shielded, extra-flexible and rugged Category 6A cable for networking and data applications. Constructed from four precision twisted-pairs, the CN424C6ASTFS is tested to meet or exceed TIA-568-C.2 specifications for 10G Cat6A applications. Built with a TPE jacket and 24 AWG stranded conductors, the CN424C6ASTFS has exceptional flexibility and flex-life characteristics.
