Is CAT7 Cable compatible with NVT UTP Transmitters and Receivers?

« Go Back

Information

 
Answer
CAT7 cable is predominately 23 AWG, and it is fully compatible with NVT signals.

There are some CAT7 cables that have 26 AWG conductors.  This stranded cable is used for patch-cords.
Given its increased DC resistance, one can use 26 AWG wire, but at roughly half the published distance.  See NVT's Distance Recommendations for more details.
