How To Tell IF My Cable Is Plenum Grade?

Hey Everyone,

I was looking at my ethernet cable today and was woundering if there was a code or specific number that will specifie if it is Plenum or not.

Thanks.

  1. My cat5e was printed on the cable. I also think plunum has a higher temp rating.
  2. Plenum tends to be stiffer than your standard non-plenum grade cabling.

    On top of that, it should have Plenum stamped on the side with the coding.
    It tends to cost a lot more and isn't something you normally find in your standard stores - most of the time you'll need to go to a cable supplier to pick it up.

    If your cable is Plenum it will be marked with a "CMP" or"CL2P", If the cable is not Plenum it will be marke "CMR"
