Product Overview
Excel External Category 6A Screened (U/FTP) Cable designed to offer performance with the protection to allow it to be
installed externally. Ideal for connecting external equipment such as IP Cameras or Wireless Access Points using a cable that
can be installed into external ducts and pathways.
Each cable consists of two sets of two pairs are wrapped together in an "S" configuration with high quality, strong,
aluminium/polyester foil tape providing screening for each pair. The "S" Foil configuration ensures separation of the pairs that
ensures the performance. By using two sets of two pairs has resulted in a reduced diameter and weight cable. The smaller
cable diameter has reduced the cable cross‐sectional area by 14.5%. This design change has been instigated to benefit the
installer and end user in many direct and indirect ways. Reducing the size and weight means the cable occupies less space in
the containment which in turn improves airflow in under floor installations. Less weight means that the containment can be of
lighter construction. It also means that handling the cable on site is easier. Smaller diameter cable means that there is waste
packaging to dispose of. The individual pairs are set to different lay lengths to ensure optimum performance. To assist with
handling and installation the cable can either be supplied on 500m reels.
Excel external grade Category 6A cables are jacketed in Black UV and moisture resistant polyethylene. Supplied on 500 metre
plywood drums, each cable has a print legend identifying the specification, part code and sequential metre marking which
counts down from 500 metres to 1 metre, on each drum to reduce waste.
