Belden www.belden.com has announced the expansion of its New Generation cable line with a series of four new IP Category 5e and Category 6 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables.

 

The new cables offer integrated Power over Ethernet in a single cable, eliminating the need for an external power source.

 

They are designed for use with digital sound, video and security systems to link low-voltage security devices such as security cameras, CCTV, keypads, and intercoms.

 

All four new cables meet the ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-2001 standard and are available in both riser and plenum-rated versions.

 

Belden’s new IP Category Cable products include Part No. 5663U5 — Cat 5e (Riser-rated), Part No. 6663U5 — Cat 5e (Plenum-rated), Part No. 5663U6 — Cat 6 (Riser-rated) and Part No. 6663U6 — Cat 6 (Plenum-rated)

 

The Category 5e cables feature 24 AWG solid bare copper conductors. The riser version has polyolefin insulation and PVC jacket with rip cord. The plenum version has FEP Teflon insulation and Flamarrest jacket with rip cord.

 

Both cables are sweep tested to 100 MHz.
