CAT5E-5M Network Cable



In Stock!!!

Ruggedised Cat5e UTP Network Cable (5 Metres)

  • Ruggedised Cat5e UTP network cable with Neutrik* etherCON connectors
  • Length 5 metres
  • Designed and engineered in England

The CAT5E-5M ruggedised CAT5E cable provides a bidirectional digital audio network data link and features Neutrik etherCON NE8MC-1 connector carriers with an integral O-ring gasket to achieve IP54 water protection for high reliability, especially desirable in concert touring and festival applications. When used with MIDAS PRO Series and KLARK TEKNIK products equipped with HyperMAC and copper snake interfaces, the CAT5E-5M cable can transmit up to 192 bidirectional channels of 24 bit digital audio at 96 kHz sample rate. CAT5E-5M also supports 24 bidirectional channels and 48 bidirectional channels at 96 kHz and 48 kHz sample rates respectively for AES50 connections. CAT5E-5M can also be used for standard Ethernet applications, and is suitable for both 100 Mbit/s and Gigabit networks.

The CAT5E-5M cable uses highly durable Belden 1305A unscreened cable with a nominal 7.6 mm diameter. The 1305A cable features 24 AWG bonded-pair stranded (7/32) copper conductors with polyolefin insulation and both inner and outer PVC protective jackets.
