PowerMAX500™ Cat 6 U/UTP 23AWG PVC Cable (305-metre/box) – Grey

The high quality and standard of DINTEK cabling products is exemplified in the PowerMAX500 Cat 6 U/UTP cable. This cable comes in a 305-metre box and is constructed using 23 AWG conductors. By keeping the conductor gauge size larger, there is less heat generation and less voltage drop over long distances, resulting in a better performing and safer cable run, particularly when new standard PoE++ high wattage (up to 100W) devices are deployed. PowerMAX500 Cat 6 U/UTP cable has been tested up to 500MHz, so it can be used for 10Gbit installations for cable runs up to 70 metres.

PowerMAX500™ Cat6 UTP Cable – 305m 23AWG PVC

The DINTEK PowerMAX500™ Category 6 solution is guaranteed to exceed ClassE channel specifications as set down in International standards.
Our PowerMAX500™ solution comprises Category 6 component compliant patch panels, keystones and patch cords. When combined with DINTEK’s Category 6 UTP cable, an end-to-end channel exists that maximises data throughput and provides headroom for all future technologies operating beyond one Gigabit.

PowerMAX500™ UTP Cable Features
  • DINTEK uses only solid copper conductors in all of its cables. We will not lower the quality of our product at the risk of the end users experience.
  • DINTEK conductor sizes for Category 6 and Category 6A are set at 23AWG. By keeping the gauge size of the conductor larger, there is less heat generation caused and less drop of voltage over distance. Cables simply perform better.
  • DINTEK Category 6 and Category 6A exceed current ANSI/TIA and ISO Standards for performance.
  • DINTEK Category 6 and Category 6A cabling is capable of handling the latest versions of power over Ethernet including IEEE 802.3-bt versions A & B without the need for derating, required for lower core sizes
  • DINTEK Category 6 23AWG Twisted Pair Cable has been tested over 500Mhz and has shown performance testing results allowing 10Gbit Ethernet transmission up to a length of 70m
