At high speed through the networks…
data transmission runs over the new CAT.8.1 network cable from Sommer cable. It supports a maximum transmission frequency of 2000 MHz – doubled compared to its CAT.7 predecessors – as well as a data rate of up to 40 Gbit/s and is suitable for setting up high-speed Ethernet networks in building infrastructure, especially for the connection between routers and switches.
The CAT. 8.1 network cable 580-0802FC in a halogen-free LSZH jacket with an overall diameter of 8.2 mm and AWG22/1 cross-section (0.62 mm) impresses with large power reserves and outstanding quality, among other things to meet the standards IEC 60332-1-2, IEC 60754-1/2, IEC 61034-1/2 as well as the high fire protection class B2ca (flame retardant, low heat release). It has an high-quality double shielding of individually shielded wire pairs (PimF) plus overall braiding of tinned copper, ensuring optimum, lost-free signal transmission. Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+/POE++) appliactions are possible as well as the transmission of digital and analog signals, video, data, voice and VoIP (Voice over IP). The cable meets all requirements according to application class 1, which provides for running lengths of 30 m maximum, and is downward compatible with CAT.7a, CAT.7, CAT.6a, CAT.6, CAT. 5e and CAT.5 categories.
In addition to the cable-bulkware, the cable manufacturer supplies perfectly matching GHMT-certified and field-terminable connectors: The RJ45C8XL cable plug offers an innovative housing concept with cable outlet in four different directions and can be combined – in addition to the CAT.8.1 cable-bulkware recommended by the manufacturer – with any litz wire/solid conductor with a cross-section of AWG22 to AWG26 and a diameter of 5.0 to 8.5 mm. The RJ45CF8XL installation socket – suitable for lines/cables from AWG22 to AWG24 with a diameter of 7.0 to 8.5 mm – is designed in the standard market keystone format.
The up to 15 m long, ready-to-use patch type C8HQ was assembled with shielded RJ45 CAT. 8.1 plugs according to industry standards. Here, the 50µ gold-plated contact areas offer perfect protection against corrosion – even after many mating cycles – while the purple bend relief with built-in latching lug protection prevents the cables from snagging or breaking off. The patch cable is 100% compatible with all units with RJ45 network connections and can be integrated into existing installations without any problems. Each cable is tested CAT. 8.1 channel link before shipment.
