Ethernet cables are used to connect different network components within a network. These devices can include printers, modems, monitors, adapters and routers. They’re an integral part of both residential and commercial networks.
Primus Cable carries an extensive selection of Ethernet cables for your particular needs. With ever-advancing technology, Ethernet cables have changed in the past 30 years. From standard Category 5e (Cat5e) Ethernet cables to the latest release – blazing-fast Category 7 (Cat7) Ethernet cables, our selection in unrivaled in both variety and affordability.
We offer 4 main varieties of Ethernet cables: Cat5e Ethernet Cable, Cat6 Ethernet Cable, Cat6a Ethernet Cable and Cat7 Ethernet Cable.
Cat5e Ethernet cable is a basic cable used for 1000Base-T applications. Commonly used in Local Area Networks (LANs), this affordable cable is available in different configurations for a wide range of installations. Our Cat5e Shielded CMP Cable can be used for plenum installations, where fire hazards are a concern. We also have outdoor & direct burial Cat5e cables, capable of withstanding mud, dirt, sun, wind and other harsh conditions. For greater distances, a long Ethernet cable is your best bet.
- Similar to Cat5e Ethernet cable, Cat6 cables are also used for LANs, but with superior performance characteristics – they’re able to accommodate a spectral B/W up to 250 MHz. Plus, Cat6 Ethernet cables help prevent signal loss and attenuation over longer distances. A few of our featured Cat6 Ethernet selections include a rugged, weather ready Cat6 CMX Outdoor Ethernet Cable, with a durable outer sleeve. You’ll also find both waterproof tape bulk cable and gel-filled Cat6 Ethernet cable, which are ideal for outdoor direct burial installations.
- For even better alien crosstalk elimination, our Cat6a Ethernet cable is a step above regular Cat6. Plus, these Ethernet cables can handle up to 500 MHz – a significant speed upgrade from its predecessor. With solid copper conductors, our Shielded UTP Cat6A Ethernet Cable handles 10GBASE-T (10 Gigabit Ethernet) speed while reducing crosstalk for strong, sure signal transmission. For heavy-duty commercial installations, our Cat6A 10G Plenum Ethernet Cable boasts a flame resistant polymer sleeve that produces minimal smoke.
- Cat7 Ethernet cable (also referred to as Class F cable) can, depending on the connector type, handle transmission frequencies of up to 600 MHz. Primus Cable proudly carries one of the most advanced Ethernet cables on the market, our Braid Shielded, Pair Foiled Cat7 Ethernet Cable. Designed for backward compatibility with Cat5 and Cat6 Ethernet networks, Cat7 cable also offers even better signal integrity than Cat6 rated cable, thanks to top-of-the-line shielding.
