MilesTek launches new Cat5e shielded industrial ethernet patch cords with low-smoke zero-halogen jackets. The new series of shielded industrial Ethernet patch cords have low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) jackets to address demanding military and industrial Ethernet connectivity applications.


These robust LSZH Category 5e-rated assemblies can be used in multiple applications, including automation and manufacturing, oil and gas, or in any application where harsh environments exist.


Featuring all-metal-body RJ45 connectors and aluminized polyester shielded cable with drain wire, these assemblies are designed to protect from EMI/RFI while maintaining high performance data transmission characteristics. Additionally, LSZH jackets protect valuable communications equipment and lives in the event of a fire.


"These rugged, shielded Ethernet cable assemblies were developed to address harsh military and industrial applications in the field. The low-smoke zero-halogen jackets were developed for use in confined areas such as communications rooms, tanks, ships, aircraft or in any confined mobile or fixed network,” said Mark Hearn, Product Manager.
