Can CAT5 cable be used to connect Paradigm stations?


Can CAT5 cable be used for LON/LinkConnect to connect Paradigm Heritage or Inspire stations, responsive controls, or touchscreen stations?


CAT5 can be used for ethernet connected touchscreens, but for all LON-based Paradigm station wiring CAT5 is not approved for use. Belden 8471 or approved equivalent must be pulled to wire in stations. Further information about which cables are approved can be found here: Data Cable Wire Length Specs and Substitutions
