Product Description

FTP Cat5e SWA Armoured Data Cable

There are 2 popular Cat5e SWA Armoured data cable products we sell. The best seller is the standard UTP Cat5e SWA Armoured data cable. The UTP version is a regular cat5 Ethernet cable ( like used at the home or office). Then the Unshielded Twisted Pair is manufactured with the Galvanized Steel Wire Armour protecting the cat5e Ethernet cable. This version is the FTP equivalent. Foiled Twisted Pair is used in buildings where noise and vibration are likely to effect the performance of the cable. For example, running the Cat5e SWA armoured cable close to plant machinery. This type of application would require a Foiled Twisted Pair cable. FTP is fairly self-explanatory, you have a Foil protecting (screening) the 4 pairs of Ethernet (data) cable.

Once you run your cat5e SWA armoured data cable to your connection point, you need a way to terminate it. With a standard cat5e Ethernet cable you would either buy a patch cable, where the ends of the cable are already crimped or you would crimp a RJ45 plug to the end of your cable. However, armoured cable is not made for crimping RJ45 plugs onto. The easiest way to terminate is to use an In-Line coupler or cat5e Jack and faceplate kit.
