Growth in DRAKA copper data cables

The Multimedia Solutions BU (MMS) of the Prysmian Group has further developed its Cat.6A U/FTP product family. With the Cat.6A U/FTP 4P B2ca, MMS offers a new high-quality, shielded copper data cable with four individual foil-shielded core pairs in CPR fire protection class B2ca s1a d1 a1. Users can now choose from an extensive portfolio of fire-safe Cat.6A U/FTP installation cables and find a suitable flame-retardant solution for a wide range of applications.

More fire safety and ...
With the UC500 S23 Cat.6A U/FTP 4P B2ca MMS equips another installation cable with the high fire protection class B2ca s1a d1 a1. It meets all criteria of the demanding CPR class with regard to smoke development (s1a), drop formation (d1) and acid content (a1). The previous cables of the UC500 S23 Cat.6 seriesA U/FTP LSHF Dca s2 d2 a1 and UC500 S23 Cat.6A U/FTP LSHF Cca s1a d1 a1 already comply with the high CPR classes Dca and Cca under System 1+ according to the EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR). Draka thus completes the CPR programme under System 1+ with the Cat.6A U/FTP product family.

With the Cat.6A U/FTP 4P B2ca MMS has completed its Draka portfolio of extremely fire-safe System 1+ cables. With this further development, Draka now offers high-quality, shielded Cat.6A-copper data cables for many other applications that meet the highest CPR standards. The Draka Cat.6A-installation cables are highly reliable, fire safe and easy to install. They also cover fast data transmission rates of up to 10 Gbit/s.

The mechanically robust AWG-23 copper cables ensure high resistance thanks to the LSHF-FR outer jacket. Pair shielding is provided by the aluminium-coated plastic composite foil around the individual wire pairs.

High-speed and PoE
The Draka UC500 S23 Cat.6A U/FTP installation cable is suitable for Power over Ethernet (PoE), type 1-4. It transmits data, voice, audio and video information at a speed of up to 10 Gbps. The halogen-free and flame-retardant protective jacket (LSHF-FR) ensures the highest level of fire protection in accordance with the EU Construction Products Regulation. Draka offers a wide range of CPR-compliant, high-performance installation cables that support the specific requirements of high-speed data network applications.
