Outdoor Bulk Ethernet Cable for Challenging Outdoor Scenarios

Imagine you are setting up a network in the following scenarios:

  • Outdoor Wi-Fi access points

  • Connecting two or more distinct structures

  • Outdoor IP-based (Internet Protocol) surveillance cameras

In these outdoor scenarios, it is recommended to use FS outdoor bulk Ethernet cables that can withstand harsh outdoor environments. FS outdoor bulk Ethernet cables use PVC and LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) as the outer jacket materials. This combination of materials makes FS outdoor bulk Ethernet cables more resistant to moisture, extreme temperature fluctuations, chemical corrosion, and UV radiation, which can ensure a longer lifespan and more stable data transmission in outdoor environments compared to standard cables. Moreover, FS outdoor bulk Ethernet cables are filled with a gel layer, allowing for direct burial without additional conduit, reducing construction costs, and speeding up the installation process.

FS provides a variety of outdoor direct-burial bulk Ethernet cables as shown below.

Indoor and outdoor bulk Ethernet cables serve their distinct purposes. If you're unsure whether to choose indoor or outdoor bulk Ethernet cables, you can refer to A Guide to Choosing FS Indoor and Outdoor Ethernet Cables for Seamless Connectivity.

Industrial Bulk Ethernet Cable for Heavy Industry

When it comes to industrial environments, regular bulk Ethernet cables often fall short due to the challenging conditions. Industrial bulk Ethernet cables from FS are specifically designed to withstand the rigors of such environments, ensuring reliable and robust performance. FS industrial bulk Ethernet cables (shown in the table below) are PUR (Polyurethane) cables, which have a high tensile strength and are resistant to UV light, water, tears, and abrasions. They are also resistant to weld slag, cutting fluids, oils, solvents, and other harsh chemicals, making them a good choice for many automotive manufacturing, stamping, and machining applications.

Reliable Network Connectivity With FS Bulk Ethernet Cable

By choosing the right type of bulk Ethernet cable from FS, you can ensure that your network setup is reliable, efficient, and tailored to your specific needs, whether for indoor, outdoor, or industrial applications. Here are several key value points that make FS bulk Ethernet cables an excellent choice for any networking project:

High-speed and Stable Network Connectivity

FS bulk Ethernet cables excel in network transmission capabilities. The Cat6 bulk cables feature a bandwidth of 550MHz and support speeds up to 1000Base-T, while the Cat6a bulk cables offer a bandwidth of 750MHz and support speeds up to 10GBase-T, meeting the speed requirements of most scenarios. Additionally, FS bulk Ethernet cables use pure copper conductors with extremely low resistance, resulting in minimal signal attenuation. This ensures signal stability in high-performance environments, reducing network dropouts and buffering times. The combination of high bandwidth and pure copper conductors allows you to enjoy fast and stable internet speeds. Whether you’re browsing the web, streaming videos, or online gaming, your network activities will be smoother and more seamless.

Wide Range of Options Meet All Your Needs

FS offers a diverse range of bulk Ethernet cable options tailored to meet various application needs. With speed categories ranging from Cat5e to Cat8, multiple shielding types like U/UTP, U/FTP, F/UTP, and S/FTP, and different jacket materials including PVC, PE, and LSZH. Whether setting up a bulk Ethernet cable for home networks or a high-performance data center, FS ensures optimal performance, durability, and safety with its extensive selection. By providing the ideal bulk Ethernet cable for each unique requirement, FS enhances the overall quality and effectiveness of any network setup.

UL Certifications Reduce Potential Safety Risks

FS bulk Ethernet cable products are UL-certified and come with flame retardant ratings, including CM, CMR, and CMP. These cables meet the stringent flame retardant performance requirements for their respective ratings, which is crucial for building safety. For instance, specific areas within buildings, such as ceiling spaces, require the use of CMP-rated cables to mitigate fire hazards. Using substandard cables that do not meet flame retardant standards can increase fire risks, endangering lives and property, and can also result in fines due to non-compliance. By choosing UL-certified FS bulk Ethernet cables, these risks are significantly minimized.

Flame Retardant Rating 
 Standard  Application
 CM  UL1581
Generally used for horizontal cabling on the same floor, not suitable for vertical cabling between floors. 
 CMR  UL1666 Used for both vertical and horizontal cabling between floors.
 CMP  UL910
Used in air return plenum systems for ductwork or air handling spaces.

Color Customization Enhances Cable Management and Troubleshooting

FS's customized bulk Ethernet cables offer ten color options, including blue, black, green, white, yellow, red, gray, orange, purple, and pink. Different colors help quickly differentiate between various network connections or devices, which is especially beneficial in environments with a large number of cables. During network troubleshooting or maintenance, the ability to distinguish cables by color reduces identification time, enhances efficiency, and streamlines operations, leading to faster issue resolution and improved productivity.

Fluke Testing Ensures Final Project Quality

Passing the Fluke test has long been considered a benchmark for determining the quality of Ethernet cables. FS's bulk Ethernet cable has successfully passed the Fluke cable test, meeting ANSI/TIA 568 and ISO/IEC 11801 standards. This means that FS cables perform to the industry-recognized standards and are classified as high-quality cables. Using cheaper cables that haven't passed the Fluke test might result in network performance falling short of requirements, necessitating rework. This can waste additional human, material, and financial resources. By opting for FS's Fluke-tested bulk Ethernet cable, contractors can mitigate these risks, ensuring final project quality and achieving flawless delivery.

Passes the Fluke Test

Conclusion

FS offers a comprehensive range of bulk Ethernet cable options that cater to diverse networking needs, ensuring reliability, performance, and safety for any project. From indoor to outdoor and industrial applications, FS's bulk Ethernet cables provide the ideal solutions with various speed categories, shielding types, and jacket materials.
