Where to buy?


The BSD550UX is a basic series CAT5E U/UTP networking cross cable, offering reliable interconnections between two network devices. Both ends are terminated by a red male RJ45 connector with gold plated contacts. The conductor section consists of 4 pairs stranded 26 AWG conductors guaranteeing an optimal signal transmission. The low-smoke & halogen free jacket material allows usage in installations in public and other demanding buildings. Supports 10Base-T, 100Base-TX and 1000Base-T gigabit networks. Supports Dante, Cobranet, Ethersound, HdbaseT and other AV network protocols

Cable properties

100 Ohm

The 100Ω cables are ideal for the transmission of digital signals. This impedance is mostly used in our wide range of UTP cables.


LSHF stands for Low Smoke, Halogen Free. This term refers to Halogen free flame retardant thermoplastic material used as a sheathing compound in cables. In the event of a fire or when exposed to high levels of heat, the chemicals in the jacket removes heat from the flame, whilst the reaction produces water as a by-product to help quench the flame.  As a result, the cable will emit very low levels of smoke, and non-toxic levels of poisonous halogen gasses.


CAT5E can handle a gigabit Ethernet network (1000Mbps at 100Mhz) and is designed to reduce crosstalk better that CAT5.

Gold plated

The connectors that are fitted with gold plated contacts have the advantage of preventing oxidation and maintain performance after years of use. Another great property of gold is that it is an excellent electrical conductor. For comparison, if pure copper has a relative conductivity of 100 then gold is only 31% lower than copper, while nickel is 76% lower than copper.
