Kramer BCLS-31YL-5 overview

  • 1Description

The BCLS-31 (1000') by Kramer is a high-performance Cat 6A U/UTP cable for IT, LAN, and Ethernet installations. Its design exceeds Cat 6A specifications and provides a larger bandwidth than the basic standard cable (sweep frequency up to 650 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. The jacket is round & smooth without twisted stripe, and its zigzag design provides excellent performance of six-around-one bundle transmission.

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
  • Exceeds Cat 6A specifications for wider bandwidth
  • Low-smoke zero-halogen jacket for safety
  • Zigzag jacket design for improved performance of six-around-one bundle transmission
  • Round and smooth jacket without twisted stripe
  • Sweep frequency up to 650 MHz
  • 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 802.3an 10GBASE-T and legacy speeds, CDDI/ATM/Token Ring, and IEEE 802.3af (PoE) / IEEE 802.3at (PoE+)
