E12424 - CAT 5e Ethernet Cable (2 Data Pair)

The E12424 is a 2 pair, 10/100 Base-T CAT5e cable (exceeding ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 CAT 5e Channel Requirements) with a smaller overall diameter and weight while retaining performance and required operating parameters. The E12424’s twisted-pair construction (two separate pairs) of tin-plated copper conductors is surrounded by a foamed fluoropolymer dielectric that assures uniform conductivity with excellent solderability. The 100% foil and 85% braided shielding assure uniform conductivity with excellent solderability, further protecting against EMI. An ETFE laser-markable jacket protects the cable against abrasion and environmental effects while maintaining flexibility for ease of installation. E12424 is suitable for airborne 10/100 Base-T CAT5e Local Area Network applications such as cabin management systems (CMS), in-flight entertainment (IFE), and Ethernet backbones.
