The Cat6 Snagless Unshielded (UTP) Slim Network Patch Cable is the perfect solution for high density datacenter applications. The use of 28 AWG conductors allows for a 36% reduction in diameter over a standard Cat6 network patch cable. This reduced diameter provides a smaller cable surface area which allows for increased airflow when compared to standard Cat6 cables. The 28 AWG conductors also allow this cable to have a smaller bend radius than standard Cat6 cables. The small size and small bend radius of this cable allows it to be easily routed through cable management panels.
This cable is designed for fast Ethernet networks that require bandwidth-intensive voice, data, or video distribution applications. Constructed from high quality copper cable, this design minimizes Near-End Crosstalk (NEXT) levels. The molded, snagless boot prevents unwanted cable snags during installation and provides extra strain relief. Available in a variety of colors to easily color-code your network installation.
This patch cable does not meet the recommend conductor size, 22-26AWG, requirement of ANSI/TIA-568-C.2. Attenuation is increased due to the smaller 28AWG conductors.
Maximum cable length recommendations:
96 Meter Channel (90 meters of horizontal cable and up to 6 meters of slim network patch cables)
93 Meter Channel (83 meters of horizontal cable and up to 10 meters of slim network patch cables)
For POE/POE+ applications we limit bundles to 40 cables due to heat dissipation of these reduced diameter cables.
