Our slim shielded Ethernet patch cables are constructed from 28 AWG Cat6A cable. This makes them ideal for applications such as data centers where high performance and space saving is essential.
They are 10G ready, have a durable CMR rated PVC jacket and are available in multiple lengths and eight colors.
What makes these cables “slim”?
These Ethernet cables are constructed with 28 AWG wire. This is smaller, or "slimmer," than regular 24 AWG wire. Yes, you did read that right, the larger the AWG number the thinner the cable!
Advantages of shielded cable
Shielded cables are designed for environments, such as hospitals or data centers, where protection from EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) is essential. If you are installing network cables in an electrically noisy area, an x-ray room, for example, the shielding will minimize interference to the cable.
What makes these cables high performance?
They are manufactured to meet and exceed the Cat6A TIA 568 C.2 standard, UL Listed and are Fluke tested!
All of these points together add up to an enterprise quality cable that has excellent cross-talk prevention, consistent and error-free 10G performance.
