CAT3, up to 100 pairs per cable, 24 AWG solid conductors, HDPE insulation, color-coded multi-pairs
PPC's Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) multi-pair category 3 cable is designed for use in backbone cabling systems as per ANSI/TIA568.2-D, ISO/IEC 11801-1:2017 and CENELEC - EN 50173-1 standards. The cable is available in 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, 25, 50, 100 pairs of 24 AWG solid copper insulated conductors, assembled into twisted pairs, with a ripcord and an overall jacket.
The UTP cable’s conductors are made of solid bare copper high-density polyethylene (HDPE) insulation. Two insulated conductors are twisted together to form a pair and multiple pairs are bundled together with a color binder to form the cable sub-unit. For higher count multi pair cable, the sub-unit will be identified with a color code. The multi-pairs are wrapped with an overall polyester tape for extra protection. The cable is available in either PVC or a LSZH jacket.
