Cat5e Patch Cable

Category 5e or Cat5e Cable is a network cable consisting of four twisted pairs of copper wire for Fast Ethernet (10/100BASE-T) and Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T). RJ45 Cat5e Ethernet Patch cable can be connected using a punch-down, 110 block and modular connectors, both of which are offered by OTSCABLES. Cat5e provides enhanced data transfer and lower crosstalk as compared to regular Cat5 cables.

Ethernet Cat5e Cable, used in numerous applications, is approved under the EIA/TIA 568 Commercial Building Telecommunications Wiring Standard by the Electronics Industries Association. Patch Cat5e Cable is designed with connectors on both ends, used for short distances.

Cat5e Patch Cable Types

OTSCABLES offers shielded and unshielded Cat5e patch cables, with Low Smoke Zero Halogen(LSZH) sheaths and CE and RoHS compliant. Regardless of what cable you need in a specific application, we will accommodate your concern with the best cable solution without compromising performance.

Solid Cat5e Cable

Solid Cat5e Cable uses one solid copper wire per conductor and supports long cable runs. It is designed for permanent installations such as in home, office and building fixtures. We carry some options for this type of cable such as our Cat5e Bulk FTP and Cat5e Bulk UTP cables.

Stranded Cat5e Cable

Stranded Cat5e cable is ideal of short-distance. It usually features 6 wires that surrounds a center conductor wire inside each twisted pairs. As this is composed of many single wires wound together, stranded cables are more flexible, making it suitable for short distance cable runs. Stranded Cat5e cable is commonly used for crossover cables. We carry some options for this type of cable such as our Cat5e Patch FTP, Cat5e Patch UTP and Cat5e Flat Patch cables.

Cat5e Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) Patch Cable

Network RJ45 Cat5e UTP Patch Cables is the most commonly used and sought after cable. Applications such as datacom, voice, ISDN, ATM155 and 622Mbps,100Mbps TPDDI, Fast and Gigabit Ethernet are can benefit from Cat5e Patch cables. This type of copper cable is consists of 2 to 1800 twisted pairs of wires that are unshielded and surrounded by an outer jacket.

OTSCABLES offers waterproof, 0.3m (1FT) to 1m (3FT) and 1.5m (5FT), 2m (7FT), 3m (9FT), 5m (15FT) and up to 30m (100FT) Cat5e UTP patch cables at very affordable China prices.

Cat5e Foiled Twisted Pair (FTP) Patch Cable

The Foiled Cat5e FTP version offers an additional layer of protection with shielding. This RJ45 Cat5e FTP is wrapped with a foil around the twisted pairs of wires, that protects the conductors against EMI/FRI and crosstalk.

Cat5e Shielded Foiled Twisted Pair (S/FTP) Patch Cable

Shielding prevents interference and signal loss. Cat5e Shielded SFTP Cables are useful for conditions where proximity to high power equipment may result to crosstalk, and it is great for areas where electromagnetic interference may occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Make a Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable

A lot have asked how to create their own Cat5e Patch Cable. While it is very easy, there is a chance that you don’t get it right without a guide. The procedure below tells you how to make your own Cat5e patch cable.

  • Strip the cable’s jacket off at about 1 inch from its end through a crimping tool.
  • Untwist by hand the 4-pairs of conductors contained inside from its position. Inside, you will see an orange pair, brown pair, green pair and blue pair.
  • Arrange the conductor wires according to 568B standard.
  • Upon arranging the wires and straightening them, cut ½” at a perfect 90 degree angle from the cable.
  • Insert and snuggle the wires into the connector, making sure the wires stay in-line with the designated pin.
  • Push hard assuring that all the wires have reached the end of the connector. Make sure that the jacket goes into the back of the connector at about 3/16".
  • Place the connector into a crimp tool, and snap it hard so that the handle reaches its full swing.
  • Repeat the process for the opposite end.
  • Lastly, use a cable tester to test for continuity.
