outside rated Cat 5?

weedmeisterOctober 15, 2010

I need to run some Cat5 or Cat6 around the outside of my house (much easier than inside). Is there such a thing as cable rated for outside exposure? And if so, how is it labeled?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I no longer have the carton from the last pull-box I purchased but the cable itself is marked "CAT-5e CMX outdoor - CMR- UL CMG."

The cable is off the shelf CAT-5e - Signal Electronic Cable - made by Coleman Cable.
