E50424 - CAT 5e Ethernet Cable (Quadraxial

The E50424 is 100 Base-T Quadrax cable specially designed for airborne applications as defined by ARINC Specification 664. The overall design of E50424 allows a smaller overall diameter and weight while exceeding Category 5e requirements. The E50424’s construction of silver-plated copper conductors is surrounded by fluoropolymer dielectric insulation assuring uniform conductivity with excellent solderability. E50424 is designed to be terminated with ARINC 600 and D38999 quadrax contacts and is compatible with any contact designed for Draca Fileca cable P/N F4704. The 100% foil and 85% braided shielding provide double shielding to preserve technical performance. A fluoropolymer jacket protects the cable against abrasion and environmental effects while maintaining flexibility for ease of installation.
