Shielded continuous flexing industrial Ethernet cables have rugged jackets for weather, hazard and flame resistance. These Cat5e or Cat6/6e cables offer overall foil and braid shielding for lower crosstalk and a high signal-to-noise ratio. Cable is available with up to 4 twisted pairs; order cut to your specified lengths, or in any bulk length.

Commercial Ethernet cables have a tube jacket surrounding the conductor pairs. This jacket design has room for the pairs to move around and even untwist in flexing applications, resulting in early mechanical or electrical failure of the cable.
Quabbin® DataMax Extreme Industrial Ethernet cable jackets were developed to survive the many industrial hazards that commercial jackets will not.
DataMax Extreme cable jackets are pressure extruded over the cable core, effectively "locking" the conductor pairs in place. This type of jacket construction provides very stable electrical performance, even when the cable is impacted, bent, or repeatedly flexed. Pressure extrusion also provides a very smooth, round, and firm jacket allowing the cable to be flexed up to 10 million cycles without failure.
