Kramer BCLS-23GR-5 Overview

The BCLS-23 (1640') by Kramer is a high-performance Cat 6 F/UTP cable for IT, LAN, and Ethernet installations. Its design exceeds Cat 6 specifications and provides a larger bandwidth than the basic standard cable (sweep frequency up to 400 MHz).

The cable is constructed with four pairs of 23-gauge solid bare-copper conductors. The low-smoke zero-halogen jacket emits limited smoke and no halogen when exposed to high sources of heat, protecting people and equipment from toxic and corrosive gas.

Acting as a shield, an overall metal-foil screen with a drain wire helps further reduce the potential of electromagnetic interference (EMI). Other features include an internal rip cord to prevent damage to the individual conductors when stripping off the jacket, a cross filler to reduce crosstalk, sequential markings every meter, and a fumigated plywood reel.

  • 4 pairs of 23 AWG solid bare-copper conductors
  • Low-smoke zero-halogen jacket for safety
  • Exceeds Cat 6 specifications for wider bandwidth
  • Sweep frequency up to 400 MHz
  • Overall metal-foil screen with drain wire
  • Internal rip cord for additional protection 
  • Cross filler for reduced crosstalk
  • Sequential markings every meter
  • Fumigated plywood reel
  • Applications include structure cabling for horizontal and building backbone cable, IT, LAN and Ethernet installations, IEEE 802.3ab 1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-TX and legacy speeds, CDDI/ATM/Token Ring, and IEEE 802.3af (PoE) / IEEE 802.3at (PoE+)
