GenSPEED® 6 Category 6 Cable

GenSPEED® 6 Category 6 Cable
Standards-Compliant Extended Frequency
Future-proof your installations with GenSPEED® 6 Category 6 cable,
now certified LP by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
Exceeds Proposed PoE++ IEEE 802.3bt Standards
GenSPEED® 6 Category 6 cable goes beyond the proposed IEEE 802.3bt standard
of 49 W to up to 100 W* for even more coverage of high-wattage equipment.
Cable Temperature Rating Beyond Standard Requirements
General Cable's EfficienC Max cable is rated to 90°C and constructed of 100%
fluoropolymer insulation to offer higher protection against increased operating
temperatures and:
• Surpasses the industry standard of 60°C
LP Listed
SUPPORTS UP TO
100 WATTS*
• Prevents material degradation from elevated temperatures over extended periods
• Reduces impact of high-powered non-standard PoE applications
First to Industry with UL Listing CMP-LP (0.5A)*
Unique Separator Design Engineered for Consistent Electrical Performance
Performance Guaranteed to 350 MHz
TRU-Mark® Print Legend Contains Footage Markings from 1000' to 0'
Third-Party Verified for Guaranteed Performance
*0.5A is the ampacity rating of the cable, which equates to 100 watts using 50 volts over four pairs.
