UltraMedia unshielded twisted-pair (utp) cable from CommScope has a positive attenuation-to-crosstalk ratio (acr) at 400 megahertz. The cable is engineered for high-speed, full-duplex, parallel transmission protocols and supports voice, video, and data applications, including 3D imaging and broadband video.
Using a patent-pending separator design that CommScope says will provide superior bandwidth performance, the utp cable is designed to support communication speeds >1 gigabit per second with the industry`s highest acr--45 decibels of acr at 100 MHz. UltraMedia also provides the greatest usable bandwidth at extended frequencies, according to the company.
The cable`s pair-to-pair acr is >10 dB at 200 MHz and >24 dB at 100 MHz. The power-sum acr is 0 dB at 275 MHz, while the maximum skew is ? 15 nanoseconds. Power-sum equal-level far-end crosstalk is 32 dB at 100 MHz.
UltraMedia can operate at temperatures from -20o to +60oC, and its dielectric breakdown is 2500 volts DC conductor to conductor. The maximum propagation delay is 5.7 nanoseconds/meter at 10 MHz, while the maximum propagation delay skew is 15 ns/100 meters at 10 MHz.
