The Nexans Essential-6 cables are manufactured and tested to the latest Category 6 specifications. They are compatible with the complete Essential-6 modular and PCB connectivity range. When the cable is installed in conjunction with Essential-6 outlets and patch panels, a 25 year Class E Link Certificate can be obtained from the Nexans website.
The Essential-6 cables have 24 AWG solid copper wires and comply with IEC 60228. The PE central cross filler keeps the pairs in place and reduces the risks of losing performance when bending the cable.
The cables are available with a Light Grey PVC or an Orange LSZH outer jacket.
Nexans Essential-6 cables are compliant with the requirements of the International, European and American cable standards, including ISO/IEC 11801, IEC 61156-5, EN 50173, EN 50288 and TIA/EIA 568-C.2.
The Essential-6 cables are as easy to install as their Category 5e equivalent, due to their small nominal outer diameter.
To support the correct set-up of hand held analysers for installation testing, the actual cable NVP value is given in the cable’s print legend.
