CAT3 Phone Cable

Category 3 cable, or CAT3 cable is a type of twisted pair cable frequently used in voice and data applications. Phone cable is defined by the Electronic Industry Alliance (EIA) and Telecommunication Industry Association (TIA). Primus Cable’s CAT3 phone cable is quality manufactured to meet and/or exceed product certifications and standards for EIA/TIA 568 and ISO/IEC 11801 specifications.

Our phone cable is commonly used for 10Base-T and 100Base-T networking, particularly for telephone and low speed data applications. We stock both phone cable for plenum and for riser applications. If your project involves installation in plenums or air spaces, the Cat3 Plenum Solid UTP Cable is a wise choice.

This phone cable features 25 unshielded solid copper pairs in a 24 AWG diameter cable. It is UL listed type CMP and California State Fire Marshal approved, making it secure for installation in air ducts. This phone cable is ideal for indoor voice communications applications, and is supplied on a wooden spool. This CAT3 phone cable is also easy to install with its color striped pairs.

Primus Cable also stocks CAT3 Riser Solid UTP Cable for voice applications especially for installation in vertical shaft applications. This 25 pair cable is unshielded, and is composed of solid bare copper conductors with a CMR rated PVC jacket. The phone cable is provided in 1,000ft increments on a wooden spool.

Make sure you stock up on CAT3 keystone jacks before heading out to your next telecommunications install project. Primus Cable’s top-of-the-line MIG+ CAT3 Keystone Jack is a U-style keystone jack ideal for residential and commercial applications. This cat3 keystone jack is color coded for TIA/EIA standards, and has a universal wiring scheme for a hassle free wiring system. It also features a fire retardant plastic housing making them safer than typical keystone jacks. It is suitable for 24-26 AWG solid wire and also fits 1U 12, 16, 24, and 48 port high density patch panels.
