Figure-8 Patch Cable – Improved!





New, premium ProPlex CAT5e Ultra 2X Figure-8 will replace popular ProPlex CAT5e 2X. Designed specifically for portable use in the Entertainment Production and Staging market, ProPlex CAT5e was the FIRST road-worthy, dependable, verified Ethernet patch cable, combining long-term reliability and optimum handling characteristics with unsurpassed critical data integrity – all proven over ten-plus years of professional industry use, over five million meters of cable sold, and over millions of touring miles traveled.

Suitable for indoor, outdoor, and temporary underwater applications, ProPlex CAT5e Ultra, with S/FTP construction, incorporates everything you loved about original ProPlex CAT5e – extreme durability and optimum handling over many years of portable use, plus fully verified Gigabit performance with almost zero skew and extreme noise resistance for the most difficult environments. In addition, ProPlex CAT5e Ultra represents a serious upgrade, featuring superior performance in many ways:

  • Improved data integrity at longer lengths
  • Improved ProPlex class-leading noise protection
  • Reduced transmission degradation, even after years of heavy use and abuse
  • Full Gigabit performance up to 90m
  • Expanded flexibility – suitable for use in CAT6 applications
  • Reduced DC resistance
  • Reduced attenuation
  • Improved N.E.X.T. (Near-end crosstalk loss)
  • Increased tensile strength
