Notes

1 - Silicone rubber insulation especially for circuit integrity cables
2 - Structured cabling Characteristic Impedance is normally within (100 ± 5) , due to the insulation system this is not achievable all the time
3 - Structured cabling systems minimum for c=65%, due to the insulation (PE + Sil Rbr) system this is not achieved, that is nvp 0,57
4 - Cat5 (95) specification: not the Cat5e of today i.e. gigabit ethernet
5 - When used in a 100m Channel, 90m + 10m patch cords, the Class D (95) is fit for some purposes: it is advisable to approve a 100m sample and perform a trial on the system before installation
