What cable is recommended for best performance with the EL5100 or EL5200?

Posted on 04/24/2015 , FAQs, Products

We recommend Cat 6/6a U/FTP or better cabling with solid core conductors and Cat 6/6a rated RJ45 jacks. That is, Cat 6 or 6a, with pair shielding. At minimum, standard Cat 5e UTP cable can be used but it must have solid core conductors, a very good environment and excellent installation (i.e. no loops in the cable, no positioning near other cables or power lines, and proper termination with Cat 5e RJ45 jacks).
