Excel Category 6A cables are designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with the ISO and TIA standards forCat 6A. As such they are suitable for the support of high speed enterprise LAN and datacentre applications such as10 Gigabit Ethernet.

The use of high quality foil tape screens in the design of this cable ensure that correctly installed systems areimmune to performance concerns sometimes found in high speed, high frequency copper cable networks. Cablesdesigned with pair and overall screening such as this act against Alien Crosstalk, the inducement of noise fromone 4 pair cable to an adjoining (or number of adjoining cables) as well as protecting against signal loss throughemissions and enabling immunity from disturbance’s which could potentially be recieved from external sourcessuch as other cables or electronic devices.

Each cable consists of 4 pairs individually wrapped in a covering of high quality, strong, aluminium/polyester foiltape providing an individual screen for each pair. These sub units are then cabled together, with the pairs set todifferent lay lengths to ensure optimum performance, an overall 360 degree foil tape screen plus drain wire isapplied to provide further immunity to outside noise and to mitigate any risk of alien cross talk.

Excel Category 6A cables are jacketed in an Ice Blue low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) compound compliant withflame retardant standards as defined in IEC 60332-1, and smoke emission standards IEC61034. Supplied on 500metre plywood drums, each cable has a print legend identifying the specification, part code and sequential metremarking which counts down from 500 metres to 1 metre, on each drum to reduce waste.
