Large reserves for 10-gigabit Ethernet

New generation of RJ45 patch cords from Datwyler delivers best performance

From April onwards Datwyler is replacing tried and tested RJ45-S/FTP Category 6/EA patch cables with higher-performance S/FTP patch cables that meet all the requirements of Category 6A as laid down by the IEC and are thus ideally suited to 10-gigabit Ethernet transmissions. This change will have no impact on price for Datwyler customers.

The new patch cable connectors are compatible with all RJ45 components up to Category 6A. They are fitted with an overmoulding and an anti-snag boot in the same colour as the cable sheath, and have latch protection.

When using these patch cables, which are based on Category 7 flexible cables, users benefit from higher spare capacity at the limit values stipulated for Class EA cabling links (Channels).
