1000FT Cat 6 Bulk Bare Copper Ethernet Network Cable UTP, Solid, Plenum Jacket (CMP), 400MHz, 23AWG - Gray
substitution for FT1 FT4 FT6
Avoid having excess Ethernet cable lying around by building your own cables to the exact length needed using this Bulk Ethernet Copper Cable from Monoprice!
Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) Category 6 Ethernet cable
23AWG solid, pure bare copper conductors
CMP (Plenum) fire safety rating
1000 foot roll
Monoprice Ethernet cables are made of 100% pure bare copper wire, as opposed to copper clad aluminum (CCA) wire, and are therefore fully compliant with UL Code 444 and National Electrical Code TIA-568-C.2 fire and safety standards, which require pure bare copper wire in communications cables.
Cable Substitution Hierarchy as per C22.2 #214 — Communication Cables
The following cable substitution may be used:
A. Communication cables marked MPP, CMP, MPR, CMR, MPG, CMG, MP, CM, CMX, CMH, FT6, and FT4 have been found to meet the standard criteria for FT1.
B. Communication cables marked MPP, CMP, MPR, CMR, MPG, CMG, and FT6 have been found to meet the standard criteria for FT4.
C. Communication cables marked MPP and CMP have been found to meet the standard criteria for FT6.
Question: Can Cat6 and Cat6a cables be mixed/ used together?
Answer: Yes, it's fine to mix Cat6 and Cat6a, but you will only get Cat6 speeds.
Question: This cable is listed as being "bare copper", does that mean it has no cable jacket or insulation?
Answer: The "bare copper" refers to the construction of the conductors, as specified in the following reference:
Section 5.3 of TIA-568-C.2 requires compliance with ANSI/ICEA SS-90-661-2006 and ANSI/ICEA S-102-732, which both include the following: "Solid conductors shall consist of commercially pure, annealed, bare copper ..." http://www.cablinginstall.com/index/display/article-display/4838983421/articles/cabling-installation-maintenance/news/network-cable/cat6/2011/3/CCCA-CDA-warn-against-copper-clad-aluminum-cables.html The problem is that some manufacturer's cut costs by using Copper Clad Aluminum wire for their conductors. The aluminum has a higher resistance, which causes more heat and can thereby present a fire hazard. "Bare copper" is the term used in the National Electrical Code, Underwriters Laboratories, and the Communications Cable and Connectivity Association (CCCA). Our use of the term is intended to communicate our total compliance with their standards for Ethernet cable construction.
