CAT5e data/telecom cable. A high quality external grade unshielded twisted pair (UTP) CAT5e compliant cable. PE (UV resistant) sheathed cable verified to ISO/IEC 11801, EN50173 and ANSI/TIA-568-C.2. Solid 24 AWG copper conductors, black in colour. External grade CAT5e cable is suitable for outdoor and wet duct applications. Use 5mm cable clips. Sold by the metre & supplied as a SINGLE length, eg, ordering a qty of 10 will mean you receive a single 10m length! If you require a custom length CAT5e patch lead simply order the length required and add the cable termination option below too!

CCA cable does not comply with industry standard specifications, therefore there is no such thing as a Copper Clad Aluminium CAT5e, 6 or 6a cable. The only cable which is classified as CAT5e, CAT6 or CAT6a contains pure copper conductors. Copper Clad Aluminium cable also poses a fire risk, it is unable to withstand Power Over Ethernet (POE) applications. When power is applied, the cable will rapidly overheat, with the initial temperature increase being twice that seen from a pure copper cable.
