What is The Function of The Cross Skeleton inside The Network Cat6 Cable?

Published by admin January 23,2021

Cat5e and Cat6 cables are commonly used cables in integrated wiring projects. The internal 4-pair core twisted pair can resist crosstalk between pairs and part of external interference from ordinary wiring environments.

The transmission rate of network Cat6 cable can provide high-speed bandwidth 2.5 times higher than that of Cat5, mainly for the transmission of gigabit networks, which can only be used with gigabit switches and gigabit routers. With 100M switches and 100M routers, only 100M networks can be transmitted.

The inside of the Cat6 cable has an extra white  cross skeleton than the Cat5 network cable. The 4 pairs of cores are respectively placed in the 4 grooves of the cross frame, so the outer diameter of the Cat6 network cable is thicker than the ordinary network cable.

Most of the cat 6 cables have a  cross skeleton inside. The  cross skeleton in the center of the cat6 cable will rotate with the change of length, maintaining the position of the 4 pairs of cores, which is beneficial to reduce the gap between the pairs. Crosstalk can improve the balance characteristics of the cable at the same time, and the balanced structure of the cable can not be damaged during the installation process.

Compared with the super five network cables, the wiring technology of the cat6 cables is difficult to a certain extent. In the process of wiring, pay attention to the size of the cat 6 network cables. The conductor size of cat6 network cables is thicker than that of the cat 5 cables(The Cat 5e network cable should be thick). 

we should pay attention to the cat6 cable when being pulled. A part of the cable is pre-drawn from the reel box for the user to extract at the other end of the pipeline. The pre-drawn cable should not be too much to avoid multiple cables entangled and surrounded on the field.
