CAT 5 cables are supplied in either STP or UTP versions â€“ thatâ€™s Screened or Un-Screened Twisted Pair wiring for structured cabling.Â This CAT 5 system has supplanted the separate CW1308 and Ethernet cables that have been installed in offices for telephones and computers.Â These cat 5 cables donâ€™t really care what goes through them â€“ itâ€™s all a matter of putting the appropriate adapters on each end.Â These are MODTAPs in telephony parlance.
CAT 5 cables have been superseded by CAT 5e cables.Â So whatâ€™s in the â€œeâ€?Â Itâ€™s all to do with the cableâ€™s performance.Â The CAT-5 spec guarantees signals with frequencies up to 100Mhz transmission speed will not have undue attenuation in installation lengths up to 90m.Â CAT 5.e cables are able to perform up to 100m.Â cat_5_cables.pdf
CAT 5 cables specifications include figures for Capacitance, Characteristic Impedance, DC Loop Resistance, Inductance, Insulation thickness, Propagation-Speed, Propagation-Delay, maximum operating temperatures and currents, plus Cross Talk between conductorsâ€¦.are all determined out by the IEEE.Â If you seriously do want to know precisely what they are then we recommend you type â€œCAT 5 cablesâ€ into your Internet search engine.
