Cat 5

  • Uses as multicore cable, plus also good for computer networking
  • Cat5e has better specs than Cat5, and is the currently recommended networking cable.
  • Cat5e is recommended for phone extensions now, as these are liable to carry broadband signals, even if they don’t already.
  • Beware of using cat5e with alarms, as alarm accessory terminations are explicitly designed for stranded cable (as required by BS). They turn out to be unreliable long term with solid core. If its wished to fit an alarm to cat5, as no alarm multicore was installed, short, stranded terminating wires can be attached at each end of the cable.
