EB-CAT5E
INDUSTRIAL CAT5E ETHERNET CABLING
Kevlar-reinforced super cable will protect your Ethernet
connections indoors or outdoors. Its high reliability
and superior ruggedness make it a perfect choice for
industrial, military or any application needing extra
protection. This Kevlar-reinforced cable is super strong
yet highly flexible, and designed to resist UV, water and
microbial penetration. It will make your job easier, and
give you the assurance and peace of mind that your
connections will be reliable for many years to come.
