Huier Cable’s Category 3 Plenum Cable is installed in a building’s return air plenums for both convenience and aesthetics. Category 3 Riser Cable is ideal for installation in vertical riser and general horizontal applications.
A Category 3 cable (Cat 3 cable) is a type of unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable that is used for voice and data communications in computer and telecommunication networks. It is an Ethernet copper cable defined by the Electronics Industry Alliance (EIA) and Telecommunication Industry Association (TIA).
Available in various jacket colors and pair counts, General Cable’s cost-effective category 3 cables meet installers’ needs for virtually every application.
SHIELDED CABLE (STP) vs UNSHIELDED CABLE (UTP)
Cat 3 cables are most commonly utilized with unshielded twisted pairs (UTP). However, environments with large motors, generators, and certain types of high-voltage lighting are major sources of Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI). In these applications, shielded twisted pair (STP) cable will help protect data signals when connected properly. Call us to discuss your application!

Conceived in 1990, the Cat 3 cable was one of the most popular data communication cables until 2000. It is used in 10Base-T and token ring networks from which it has the ability to transmit data at a speed of 10 Mbps. When implemented in 100BaseT networks, a Cat 3 cable can carry data at speeds much higher than its base speed.
The Cat 3 cable delivers good voice communication performance because it provides 16 MHz of bandwidth, which is more than enough for phone calls. It is also popular in network environments where electromagnetic interference is of minimal concern.
