    Product Details

    The Superior Essex Category 6 CMR/CMX Outdoor Sunlight Resistant cable is specifically designed for extreme sunlight and temperature applications. The level of UV blocking compounds is the same as in traditional Outside Plant (OSP) cable products, with the black color preventing damage from long-term UV sunlight exposure. Applications include Ethernet interconnect cable for Wi-Fi or retrofit cable installations that employ exterior runs having long-term outdoor exposure between two environmentally protected points. CMX Outdoor cables are designed to extend the run between the Network Interface Unit and the point of entry into the interior of a residence or a premise.

    Superior Essex CAT 6 CMR/CMX Outdoor Sunlight Resistant black premises cable has been tested and listed as UL® 444 Sunlight Resistant compliant. This designation requires the cable to resist 720 hours of harsh UV and heat, which is more than twice the exposure time of the standard 300 hours required in the CMX Outdoor test. In addition, the CMR listing allows the cable to be used in riser spaces per UL 1666, eliminating the need to transition to fire resistant cables.
