MOTION CONTROL: AutomationDirect now offers Cat5e Ethernet patch cables in eight colors and three foot to 50 foot lengths. The straight and crossover patch cables support up to 1000 Mbps, and are designed to reduce the effects of electromagnetic interference by incorporating a single metal foil shield which wraps around the entire set of four twisted shielded pairs. The robust RJ45 connectors are also shielded against electrical interference. Our 350 MHz cables exceed all Cat5e TIA/EIA standards, and drastically reduce both impedance and structural return loss (SRL) when compared to standard 100 MHz cables. With prices starting at $5.00, these cables help create solid, reliable Ethernet networks with any application.
