PIC E40424 10/100 Base-T 2-Pair
(DAI Part# E40424)
4-Conductor Cable

Cable Construction
  • ETFE Jacket (White) Laser Markable
  • Silver-Plated Copper Braided Shield
  • Foil Shield
  • Foamed Fluoropolymer Insulation
  • Silver-Plated Copper Conductors


Color Codes
  • Pair #1 - White/Blue
  • Pair #2 - Green/Orange


This cable has been specially designed by PIC for airborne 10 and 100 Base-T Local Area Network applications as defined by ARINC Specification 664. The twisted-pair construction (two separate pairs) effectively reduces inductive interference while 100% foil and 90% braided shielding serve to further protect against EMI.

Each conductor is surrounded by a foamed fluoropolymer dielectric having a high velocity of propagation which permits smaller overall diameter and weight while retaining performance and required operating parameters. Silver-plated copper conductors and shielding assure uniform conductivity with excellent solderability. An ETFE laser wire markable jacket protects the cable against abrasion and environmental effects while maintaining flexibility for ease of installation.

E40424 exceeds ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 CAT 5e Channel Requirements. It is Skydrol resistant, RoHS compliant and passes the FAA flammability requirements of FAR Part 23 and 25, Appendix F. Test results are available upon request.
