MOHAWK Spectrum™ Low-Skew Twisted Pair Video Cable

Fast, Reliable Video Signal Over Twisted Pair

We Guarantee to Have the Best Price

What's special about this low skew video cable?

  • Video signal over “category” style twisted pair cable supports longer cable runs than currently available with coax cable
  • Built-in “low skew” of 2.2ns/100m means all parts of images traveling along the separate pairs of the cable are within 2.2 nanoseconds of each other
  • With a smaller overall diameter than other RGB (red, green, blue) or coax video cables, this product allows for more runs, and can be hidden in walls or raceways

Mohawk's Spectrum Series is a cost effective alternative to coax for video applications. With the rapid growth of the digital signage industry, this innovative new cable concept was born. Can be used in a variety of industries such as retail signage, supermarkets, education, banking, government, hospitality and transportation. Easily terminated with an RJ45 connector so contractors and installers are already familiar with the cable structure and installation.

  • Built solely for video transmission, this cable will not work with data applications, and provides crisp, uninterrupted video
  • Works like standard format RGB video by delivering a portion of the signal over three pairs of standard UTP data style cable at the same time to provide the clearest image
  • Skew of 2.2ns/100m ensures that the images being transmitted will arrive within 2.2ns of each other on each set of twisted pairs
  • Lower skew allows cables to run of up to 2000ft before any signal degradation is experienced
  • Constructed of 24 AWG solid copper, and is available in plenum jacketing
  • Smaller diameter cable (0.185”) is much narrower than the standard bulky and expensive coax cables that are typically used
  • Footage markers are printed on the jacket from 1000ft to 0ft on each reel providing you pre-measured lengths while installing
  • Product is covered by US Patent No.5563377



  • ETL (USA) & ETL (CANADA) listed for this application by passing NFPA 262
  • For use in air handling ducts and spaces in accordance with article 800 of the National Electrical Code (NEC)



  • RoHS compliant
  • CSA C22.2 No 0.3
