CAT8 materials

The Cat.8 system from EFB-Elektronik for the perfect link setup

We provide you with all Cat.8 components for a complete cabling route. From Cat.8 patch cables, installation cables and keystones to field installable connectors, installation links and distribution panels. With the Cat.8.1 (CLASS 1) standard, you can achieve speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second (Gbps) on cable runs up to 30 meters. The Cat.8 cables achieve maximum operating frequencies of 2,000 MHz. This means that existing copper infrastructures can continue to be used- without costly conversion to fiber optics. Cat.8 can be used in the rack interconnect area as well as in the backbone area or for connecting floor distributors

What is a Cat.8 cable?

A Cat.8 cable is a typical S/FTP (Screened Foiled Twisted Pair) cable with 4 twisted pairs that are each wrapped in foil. All the pairs are additionally shielded with woven mesh and protected from electromagnetic interference.

How long can a Cat.8 cable connection be?

The maximum transmission path is 30m. There are three possible alternatives:. This makes Cat.8 particularly suitable for data centers. In structured building cabling, significantly longer network cables and distances are usually required. There are three options for combining Cat.8 installation cables and network cables or connectors:
  1. Long Channel: Using a 26m installation cable and 2m patch cable at each end
  2. Short Channel: Using a 5m installation cable and 2m patch cable at each end
  3. Direct Connect: Using a 30m installation cable and two plug connectors that can be easily assembled without special tools

What is the difference between Cat.8.1 and Cat.8.2?

While Cat.8.1 cables use conventional RJ45 connectors, Cat.8.2 cables are designed for use with various plugs such as RJ45 or GG45.
