This Cat5e Ethernet patch cable is made with 100% pure copper. Our Cat5e cables feature a 50 micron gold plated RJ45 head. You can select a variety of colors -- Blue, Black, Gray, and White. All our iMBAPrice cables come with a lifetime warranty!
Why copper wiring over aluminum?
All our iMBAPrice Ethernet cable products are made with 100% pure copper wire. Why is pure copper better than the common CCA wiring? The CCA wiring (Copper Clad Aluminum) uses an aluminum conductor, a material less expensive than pure copper, coated with copper. In short what this means in terms of performance is that since CCA has a higher attenuation, there will be a lot higher chance of packet loss or data corruption at the physical layer. The longer the cable is, the higher chance of this happening is much more likely. In addition, CCA has lower tensile strength resulting the likelihood of cable damage through pulling or bending. However, with the use of pure copper wiring, the user will have more reliable connectivity and cable durability. That is why all iMBAPrice cables are made with 100% pure copper wiring.
What does 50 micron Gold plated mean?
On each end of this iMBAPrice Cat5e Ethernet patch cable contains a gold plated tip to maintain optimum conductivity. Since gold is a well known high conductive and non-corrosive metal, thicker gold plating means greater protection from corrosion, making your product last longer. Unlike the usual lowest grade gold plating thickness (3-6 micron) commonly found it other gold plated Cat5e cables, this gold plated RJ45 plug contains the highest grade of gold plated thickness available in the market -- 50 micron. Whether you install your cables high humidity environment, or a non clean air environment, our cables can handle Our iMBAPrice cables were made to last and we stand behind this statement with our lifetime warranty.
