Can different ethernet cables be used with the HDL300 or Dual HDL300 systems?

Stock cable specifications and replacement cable recommendations
Last Updated: January 21st, 2022

All HDL300 systems have a 50' (15 m) Cat 6A SSTP (Screened Shielded Twisted Pair) 26 AWG cable included as the Power over Ethernet (POE) cable.  Dual HDL300 systems include two of the PoE cables.

If a longer or replacement cable is needed, use an Ethernet cable with the following specifications:

  • Cat 5E minimum
  • SSTP (Screened Shielded Twisted Pair)
  • Minimum 26 AWG gauge cable for cable runs under 164' (50 m)
  • Minimum 24 AWG gauge cable for cable runs under 246' (75 m)
  • Minimum 23 AWG gauge cable for cable runs up to 328' (100 m)
