Cat6a U/FTP Patch Cables
For bandwidth intensive applications that require speeds up to 10Gbps, PI Manufacturing Cat6a foil twisted pair U/FTP cables provide the performance and requirements. Rated at frequencies up to 750MHz, these Cat6a cables improve significantly by reducing alien crosstalk, allowing 10 Gigabit speeds to be reached without interference. For shielding, our Cat6a patch cables feature a foil twisted pair - each pair is individually shielded with a metal foil. This provides several benefits, including protection from EMI and RFI interference, better overall PoE support as a result of lower DC resistance and maximization of data rates. A snagless molded boot provides strain relief, while providing essential protection from unplugging and plugging. 26AWG bare copper conductors allow longer distances and faster speeds, while exceeding ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 standards.
Available in different lengths and colors, our Cat6a cables are UL listed, CSA approved and ETL verified.
This diagram shows a setup that is typically used for Cat6a. In this setup, we recommend using Cat6a keystones, patch panels, Cat6a S/STP bulk cables running in-wall and then Cat6a U/FTP patch cables going from the patch panel to the keystone jack and then to the equipment, such as a computer or network switch.
