Draka Comteq USA has announced the development of an All-Weather Category 6 cable, SuperCAT1000.
The SuperCAT1000, 4-pair UTP supports next generation applications utilizing up to 250 MHz bandwidth. It features a fully waterproof construction with a durable jacketing system for outdoor installations. The cable can be used to connect small campuses, or is suitable for installations in harsh industrial plants.
The SuperCAT1000 can be directly buried, installed inside a duct or aerially lashed to a support member. The cable is fully flooded with a tough UV and abrasion resistant black polyethylene jacket, making it rugged to withstand temperatures from -70øC to + 70øC. If additional protection is needed for extreme environments, a steel or aluminum armor can be purchased.
"To stay ahead of the competition in the datacom market, we've responded with the investment in high-end manufacturing equipment, which allows us to produce the highest quality of enhanced category cables today, guarantee their performance and address advanced technologies, such as Category 5e, 6 and Category 7," says Harry van der Meer, director of technology for Draka Comteq USA.
"This addition, which rounds out our datacom copper cable offering for unique and harsh environments, exceeds the latest TIA standards, as well as military specifications for water penetration," notes Rob Gilberti, director of marketing.
Draka Comteq USA is based in Franklin, MA. For more information visit
