Applications: CAT6 SF/ UTP stands for: Category 6 Screened Foiled / Unshielded Twisted Pairs. Category 6 SF/UTP cable is LAN type data transmission cable. Category 6 SF/UTP is used as main distribution and client side/terminal connection wire in local area networks. CAT 6 SF/UTP also used in internal telephone wiring and as connection cable for recently developed digital cameras in CCTV applications. Indoor use only. Advantage of Category 6 SF/UTP over Category 6 UTP and CAT F / UTP is that CAT6 SF/UTP has braiding of tinned copper wire screen against electromagnetic interference. Category 6 SF/UTP type should be preferred if electromagnetic interference is the main concern of large scale local area networks. Indoor use only.
