Close-up of the cable
NETSET cables are compliant with Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and EN 50575 harmonized European standard that specifies reaction to fire performance requirements, test and assessment methods for electric cables used for the supply of electricity and for control and communication purposes, which are intended for use in construction works and subject to performance requirements on reaction to fire.
CAT 6A U/FTP Shielded Cable: NETSET U/FTP 6A [100m], indoor
NETSET U/FTP 6A E1616 cable has been examined by DELTA DANSK ELEKTRONIK LYS OG AKUSTIK notified body (NB 0199) and got Eca reaction to fire classification.
NETSET U/FTP 6A is a top quality indoor FTP CAT 6A twisted-pair cable designed for use in professional computer networks inside buildings. Shielding layers made of aluminum foil minimize crosstalk between pairs and interference with the external environment.
Distinguishing features of NETSET U/FTP CAT 6A E1616 cable:
  • highest-quality materials, strict technological discipline confirmed by a 15-year quality guarantee,
  • parameters far exceeding the requirements for Category 6A twisted pair cables,
  • preliminary quality control of materials and thorough tests of the final product,
  • solid wires of 0.57 mm diameter (23 AWG),
  • wire insulation made of Skin-foam-skin PE; colors: white-green/green, white-orange/orange, white-brown/brown, white-blue/blue,
  • insulated wires twisted in pairs, shielded with aluminum foil,
  • sheath made of LSZH material of 7.4 mm diameter,
  • meter markers - length error less than 0.5%.
