CAT6 Bulk Stranded Ethernet Cable, Shielded Bare Copper CM, 26 AWG 1000FT
Our CAT6 Shielded Stranded Cable is ideal for your shielded indoor voice, data, video and security networking applications. Whether you are wiring your home, office or entire campus, we have the network solution that is right for you.
This CM rated CAT6 Shielded Stranded Cable is the perfect fit for reliable installations where the cable will be used indoors. This cable's 8 conductors (4-Pairs) are stranded copper with a high density polyethylene (HDPE) insulation, over all foil shielding (F/UTP) and a PVC CM rated RoHS Compliant jacket. Additionally, this 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. Our ETL Verified CM rated Category 6 Shielded Stranded Cable is designed for indoor LAN applications, making it the best solution for indoor installation runs that require the cable to be installed in walls or any other non-plenum riser rated areas. One common application for stranded cable is fabricating custom patch cables due to the flexibility that the stranded cable configuration offers.
To make sure we are supplying our customers with high quality bulk Ethernet cables our cable have to meet and/or exceeds CAT6 ANSI/TIA-568.2-D standards. Our CAT6 Stranded cable is also manufactured to meet current CAT6 guidelines and is verified by outside standards organizations including ETL so the cable is ETL Verified as well as RoHS Compliant.
Why Shielded Cable?
The foil shielding protects the signal from outside EMI™s and also keeps the signal from emitting its own EMI. For example, a hospital has many electronic devices that emit Electro Magnetic Interference so you would want to use a shielded cable to prevent EMI from both entering and exiting your cable.

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.

Solid Core Cable vs Stranded Cable
A solid core cable uses one solid wire per conductor and in a four pair cable there would be a total of eight solid wires. Stranded conductor uses multiple wires wrapped around each other in each conductor and in a four pair with seven strands per conductor cable, there would be a total of 56 wires.
Solid core cable is supposed to be used for permanently installed runs. It is less flexible than stranded cable and is more prone to failure if repeatedly flexed. Stranded cable is used for fly leads at the patch panel and for connections from wall-ports to end devices, as it resists cracking of the conductors. A stranded core is generally more expensive than a solid core.
Connectors need to be designed differently for solid cores than for stranded. Use of a connector with the wrong cable type is likely to lead to unreliable cabling. Plugs designed for solid and stranded cores are readily available, and we even offer plugs designed for use with both types.
