What is Cat 6 (Cat6)?

Category 6 cable, commonly referred to as Cat 6 (Cat6), is a standardized cable for Gigabit Ethernet and other network physical layers. It is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e cable standards.

What about Category 5 vs. Category 5e?

Category 5 has been superseded by the Category 5e (enhanced) specification. The Category 5e specification improves upon the Category 5 specification by tightening some crosstalk specifications and introducing new crosstalk specifications that were not present in the original category 5 specification. The bandwidth of category 5 and 5e is the same: 100 MHz.

Can the Medical UPS be laid on its side?

Yes, however, the LCD panel will be easier to use when the UPS is in its standard orientation. If you choose to position the UPS unit in a non-standard position, make sure the fan on the back and at least one of the side vents are left unobstructed so the UPS has plenty of airflow.

What is Cat 5 (Cat5)?

Category 5 cable (Cat 5 or Cat5) is a twisted pair cable for carrying signals. This type of cable is used in structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet. The cable standard provides performance of up to 100 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet). Cat 5 is also used to carry other signals such as telephony and video.

Can this Medical UPS be used with life-support equipment?

No. Our medical-grade UPS units are designed and certified to meet UL 60601-1 requirements for use within patient care vicinities for non-critical care equipment. They have not been designed or certified for use with life support or other critical care equipment and should not be used for that purpose.
