We often see Cat5e and Cat6 with solid and stranded cable in the market. Compared to solid patch cable. Signal transmission is more stable by used stranded patch cable, why? Let us see details.
Solid cable structure as below:
Stranded cable structure as below:
The RJ45 connector has three copper trident, and the trident is in order. When we use Crimping toll to press the RJ45 connector, the trident will enter the cable.
First, If the copper conductor is in the center when product inner PE, the copper trident will be easily accessible.
Second, If the copper conductor not in the center during product inner PE process, then the trident will be not inserted into the conductor. As you know cable has main four line: white/ orange, orange, white/green, blue and then the signal transmission will be Problems, missing signals, seriously said that this wire will be a quality problem, if poorly quality.
Copper trident thickness: 0.35mm
inner OD: 0.95mm/0.97mm
Solid Conductor: 0.40-0.57mm
This means that the thinner your conductor is, the better the chance of bad contact will be. The thicker the conductor is, the better the copper conductor will be. So we choose solid patch cable. The conductor diameter of Cat5e or Cat6 conductor is ≥ 0.45mm.
Regarding stranded cable, can effectively guarantee the transmission of signals during used. Because There have 7 conductors in cable and the area will be relatively larger. When the Crimping toll press connector, the copper trident will be inserted into the cable and will be enough touch with the conductor. The data transmission will be more stable.
Someone choose solid patch cable, then you need to change the trident arrangement of the connector, they are not on a line for solid cable, even if the conductor is often, and the maximum range being contacted, this is also a better solution. At present, there are relatively few connectors in domestic factories. Generally, the conventional RJ45 connector is neatly sorted. They are not sorted, so they need to be purchased according to their actual purposes. Apply our proposal or stranded.
