How to distinguish the CAT5E network cable and CAT6 network cable?

2020-12-11

Shenzhen Kingwire Electronics Co., Ltd. since its establishment in 2009, has been focusing on one thing, that is to do a good job in every Network Cable. These cables include cat8 network cable, cat7 network cable, cat6a network cable, cat6 network cable, cat5e network cable, round network cable, Flat Network Cable, shielded Ethernet Cable, unshielded Ethernet cable, cross-over network cable, waterproof wires, Fire Resistant Network Cable and so on.

Because focus, so professional!


Let's take a look at how to distinguish CAT5E Ethernet Cable and CAT6 Ethernet Cable:

1. See the printing words on the cable
The printing words on cat5e patch cord cable is "CAT5E UTP PATCH CORD CABLE 24AWG 4PAIRS VERIFIED TO TIA/EIA 568B.2",and also there will be some customer's logo on it.But please note that there will be "CAT5E".
The printing words on cat5e patch cord cable is "CAT6 UTP PATCH CORD CABLE 24AWG 4PAIRS VERIFIED TO TIA/EIA 568B.2",and also there will be some customer's logo on it.But please note that there will be "CAT5E".
2. Measure the speed with a network card
CAT5E network cable we are often referred to as a hundred Megabyte cable, CAT6 network cable we are often referred to as gigabit cable.
Test the speed of the cat5e network cable with the 100 megabytes network card. If it is less than or equal to 100 megabytes, it is cat5e network cable.
Use the gigabit card to test the speed of cat6 network cable. If the speed is higher than 100 megabytes and lower than 1000 megabytes, it is cat6 network cable.
3. Look at the internal structure of the wire
The biggest difference between the internal structure of the CAT5E network cable and the internal structure of the CAT6 network cable is that there is a cross inside the cat6, but there is no cross inside the cat5e network cable.
4. Look at the RJ45 connector on the cable
In general, the crystal head of Cat5E Cable is a single row, and the crystal head of cat6 cable is a double row.If this crystal head is used alone to distinguish between single and double rows, it is not 100% correct, because sometimes the cat6 network cable can be used with a single row of crystal head if the conductor is thin and the cable diameter is small.

It is no problem to make a distinction by combining the above methods.
