Category 6 UTP Cables
Datasheet: G102051v1
APPLICATION
The Brand-Rex Cat6Plus C6U cables exceed the Category 6 performance standards. They are rated to 250MHz and are suitable for
use in all Class E structured wiring cable systems.
The Cat6Plus C6U cable supports Gigabit Ethernet, PoE, voice and broadband video transmissions at frequencies as high as
250MHz.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
 23 AWG Solid Annealed Copper Wire
 Polyolefin Core Insulation
 Central Cross Filler – for increased internal crosstalk
performance
 4 Unshielded Twisted Pairs Cabled Together
 Available in a Range of Sheath Materials – to suit a variety of
installation environments and colour coded for identification
 Designed to Support all Class E protocols including Gigabit
Ethernet
 Supports Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and Power Over
Ethernet Plus (PoE+) Applications
 Included in the Brand-Rex 25 Year System Warranty - when
used in conjunction with Brand-Rex copper connectivity
