Monoprice Cat6A fixed length network cables are the perfect combination of value and performance. Each cable is made of 26AWG stranded pure bare copper conductor pairs with 50µm gold plated contacts (short body). Most budget cables skimp with only 10µm. Each cable features snagless strain relief boots. This cable is a Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) type, which provides an extra level of protection against EMI and RFI interference.
Monoprice Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6A cables are made of 100% pure bare copper wire, as opposed to copper clad aluminum (CCA) wire, and are therefore fully compliant with UL Code 444 and National Electrical Code TIA-568-C.2 fire and safety standards, which require pure bare copper wire in Cat5e and Cat6 communications cables.
