TE Connectivity launches a cross linked ruggedized Cat5e rail data cable for use on both on board and trackside applications

TE Connectivity launches a cross linked ruggedized Cat5e rail data cable for use on both on board and trackside applications. (Source: TE Connectivity, PR240)DARMSTADT, Germany – April 12, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced a new Category 5e (Cat5e) quad high speed data cable for railway rolling stock and infrastructure. With its halogen-free flame retardant polymer insulation, the cable complies with EN45545-2, the new European standard covering fire behavior of materials and products in railway rolling stock. This is because its crosslinked outer jacketing provides high resistance to chemicals, mechanical stresses and extreme temperatures. It can be supplied on its own or in pre-assembled assemblies with connectors, for ease and speed of installation.
