UV Rated, 24AWG, Direct burial shielded cable with LSZH jacket, Dual Jacket, 8-Conductor, Solid-Bare Copper, Made from Black CMXT, w/Drain Wire.

Our line of Cat5e outdoor rated, direct burial patch cables are designed to last where standard indoor cables fail. These high-quality cables are terminated by hand right here in our central Indiana location. Each cable is comprised of 24AWG solid bare copper wire arranged in 4 twisted pairs, waterblock tape to repel moisture, a foil shield and drain wire to cut down on electrical interference, and a LSZH rated outer jacket. Are you looking for a rugged Cat5e DBC cable that can not only stand up to the elements but also be directly buried in the ground? If so, you have come to the right place. Each individual cable is fully tested prior to shipping to ensure maximum performance. This multipurpose cable can be used in Outdoor, Outside Plant, Above Ground as well as Direct Burial

Because these are indeed built to order there may be a lead time of several days depending on many factors so, if time is crucial, please contact us to discuss specifics and we will do our best to meet your deadline.
