CAT6 Outdoor Direct Burial Cable w/ Water Blocking Gel Tape

Our Outdoor Direct Burial Dry Gel Tape CAT6 Cable is the perfect choice for your outdoor voice, data, video and security networking applications. Whether you’re wiring your home, office, or an entire campus, we offer the right network solution for your needs.

This Shielded Outdoor Waterblock Tape Direct Burial CAT6 Cable is specifically designed for installations where the cable will be buried underground in conduit. Featuring 8 conductors (4-Pairs) of solid bare copper with a high density polyethylene (HDPE) insulation and a low density polyethylene (LDPE) Jacket.

This CAT6 outdoor cable also includes aluminum foil shielding which helps eliminate and protect against electrical interference that could impede your signal. For added moisture protection this cable includes a waterblock tape that repels water keeping it out of the cable and away from the conductors.

Our Shielded Category 6 Waterblock Tape Direct Burial Outdoor Cable is created for residential outdoor direct burial LAN applications, making it the ideal solution for installation runs that require the cable to be buried underground in conduit. Additionally, this CAT6 outdoor cable has a tinned copper drain wire which grounds the electricity after it has been terminated. This drain wire is required on all shielded cable in order to prevent signal loss, cross-talk, and other performance issues. This cable is tested to perform up to speeds of 600MHz.

To guarantee the provision of top-quality bulk Ethernet cables, our cable have to meet and/or exceeds CAT6 ANSI/TIA-568.2-D standards. Our CAT6 outdoor cable is also manufactured to meet current CAT6 guidelines and is verified by outside standards organizations and is RoHS Compliant.

Additional Information

Additional Information

Solid Wire: also called solid-core or single-strand wire, consists of one piece of metal wire. Stranded wire is composed of a bundle of small-gauge wires to make a larger conductor and more flexible than solid wire. Solid wire is generally used for in-wall wiring where there is little need for flexibility in the wire.

CMR: The 'R' in CMR is for 'Riser'. Riser type cables are engineered to prevent the spread of fire from floor to floor and are suitable for vertical shaft applications.

CMP: The 'P' in CMP is for Plenum. Cables meeting type CMP requirements are suitable for installation in ducts and plenums without the use of conduit. These cables are designed for fire resistance and low-smoke and toxin producing characteristics.

CMX: The 'X' in CMX is for Outside Plant. Cables meeting type CMX requirements are suitable for installation in outdoor applications where exposed to the elements.
