Belden (NYSE: BDC), a world leader in the development of signal transmission solutions for the enterprise, industrial, building management, broadcast, and security markets, announces the expansion of its New Generation cable line with a series of four new IP Category 5e and Category 6 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables.
The new cables offer integrated Power over Ethernet in a single cable, eliminating the need for an external power source. They are designed exclusively for use with digital sound, video and security systems to link low-voltage security devices such as security cameras, CCTV, keypads, and intercoms.
The robust value-priced cables enable system designers, integrators and installers to provide their customers with high-quality, reliable sound, video and security systems at a very competitive price point. All four new cables fully meet the ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-2001 Standard. They are available in both riser- and plenum-rated versions. Belden’s new IP Category Cable products include:
– Belden Part No. 5663U5 – Cat 5e (Riser-rated)
– Belden Part No. 6663U5 – Cat 5e (Plenum-rated)
– Belden Part No. 5663U6 – Cat 6 (Riser-rated)
– Belden Part No. 6663U6 – Cat 6 (Plenum-rated)
The Category 5e cables feature 24 AWG solid bare copper conductors. The riser version has polyolefin insulation and PVC jacket with rip cord. The plenum version has FEP Teflon insulation and Flamarrest® jacket with rip cord. Both cables are sweep tested to 100 MHz.
The Category 6 cables feature solid bare copper conductors. The riser version (24 AWG) has polyolefin insulation and PVC jacket with rip cord. The plenum version (23 AWG) has FEP Teflon insulation and Flamarrest jacket with rip cord. Both cables are sweep tested to 250 MHz.
All four cables are available with Black jackets. Footage is sequentially marked every 2 feet, with countdown from 1,000 to eliminate guesswork and waste.
With the addition of the new value-priced cables, Belden now offers the sound and security industry more cabling options than ever before.
