What's special about this Cat5e Ethernet cable?

  • Premium-grade category 5 data cable specifically designed to withstand the punishing rigors of constantly moving parts, while withstanding some of the harshest environmental elements
  • Abrasion resistant and highly flexible construction protects inner conductors from premature breakage and wear-and-tear in high stress applications, such as cable/ hose carrier systems or suspended cable trays for industrial machinery
  • 26 AWG inner conductors are constructed from finely stranded bare copper wires to provide excellent data transmission while meeting and exceeding the EIA/TIA compliance for CAT5e performance

Equipment failure due to cables deteriorating and not living up to the demanding standards of today’s fast-paced machinery is a very costly and counterproductive problem that plagues a wide range of industries, from amusement parks to machine shops. Chainflex® Cat 5e Ethernet patch cords from Igus® provide the perfect solution to failing data cables used for moving machinery. Unlike standard Cat 5 cables, these high-performance cables contain multiple layers of strong, flexible and resistant materials to ensure cables perform and maintain the highest level of reliability, even in the roughest environments.
