Would I need to earth this cable? And if so at one or both ends?
( )
No, this is unshielded cable and only ever carries low voltages when used for power-over-ethernet (PoE) so an earth wouldn't be required.
( )
Is there a Cat 6 SWA cable available in Euro Class standard Cca s1b, d2, a2 or better?
( )
We don't currently offer an armoured cable rated higher than Fca but we are working on introducing one soon.
( )
Is this cable shielded and suitable to be ran alongside power cables?
( )
Good morning,

This cable is unshielded UTP. If you require shielded, you would need to acquire the FTP variant.

Kind regards
( )
Hi, is this UV stable for running above ground?
( )
Yes, the Polyethylene sheath is UV stabilised.
( )
Do you need a special tool to strip back and prepare terminations?
( )
No, a junior hacksaw will work. Carefully score the steel wires but not all the way through. They should snap easily once scored.
( )
Would this be suitable for underwater use mid span for a short distance across the bottom of a moat in still water (the ends will be dry inside buildings)?
( )
I can confirm that this cable is suitable for laying directly under water and should be fine for your application.
( )
Is this supplied as one length or cut in sections
( )
Yes we can supply as a single length up to 1km or cut to your requirements
( )
Can you use ordinary Cat6 plugs with this cable
( )
Yes, you would need to strip back the armouring and apply the plug to the cable within. Alternatively you can use an inline junction box to joint it onto a smaller cable for a more flexible termination.
( )

Brilliant quality cable for the money. It's about the best priced/quality armoured I've used and on my fourth order of this stuff now.
