L-com's most durable and rugged Cat5e cable line just got even tougher. The new Metal Armored TRD8RGMT line is designed for use in outdoor, industrial and military applications where the harshest environments exist and now has crush resistant metal armor. These robust assemblies are built using our IP68, ruggedized RJ45 plugs and jacks. The Category 5e cable used in the cables is double shielded, high-flex, UV and Oil resistant and made with a FR-TPE (Flame Retardant Thermoplastic Elastomer) jacket that is CMX outdoor rated. The metal armor protects the cable from damage and features a 1,500 pounds per square inch crush resistance. Superior shielding of both the cable and connectors ensures higher data transmission rates up to Gigabit Ethernet speeds. These cables offer complete moisture, dust, oil, UV and damage protection for your military, outdoor or industrial application. To suit every need, we offer all plug and jack combinations off the shelf in both Zinc Nickel and Anodized Aluminum finishes.
