Why do the Ethernet cables need to be unshielded for PM8000?


15 October 2021

The PM8000 Ethernet ports are ungrounded and as a result there is a potential risk for the Ethernet port to act as a surge/fault path if an Ethernet cable with a metal jack is used. To address this potential risk it’s recommended that Cat 5e UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) is used.
