Belden 7953A Cat 6 Outdoor SF/UTP Ethernet Cable, 305 m Reel

Belden 7953A DataTuff is a ruggedised UV-stable Cat 6 Ethernet cable series designed for use in harsh outdoor environments.

With its industrial tough PVC outer sheath the cable withstands direct continual exposure to sunlight and oils. This SF/UTP cable has two PVC sheaths separated by a Beldfoil aluminium tape shield with 100% coverage. The cable includes an anti-cross talk divider although it is not pictured in the current graphic.

Belden 7953A is industry recognised as a go-to Ethernet cable for a wide range of mining, industrial plant and machinery, and microwave transmission applications. The cable maintains an 8.5 mm outer diameter making it suitable for most industrial cable boots.

Recommended Use

The Belden brand is a trusted name worldwide. R-Spectrum strictly use industry recognised data cables on our microwave and network projects.

SF/UTP DataTuff cables provide excellent transmission characteristics and strike a good balance between shielding levels and cable weight. Multiple DataTuff variations are available for applications requiring SF/FTP, Cat 6A, or flame retardant characteristics.
