Cat 6 & Cat 6A Patch Leads
Snagless Booted RJ45 Plug
0.3m-20m Leads in 10 Colours
The TruAccessories range of Cat 6 U/UTP LSHF & Cat 6A S/FTP LSHF patch leads are offered in 13 lengths from 0.3 meters to 20 meters, in 10 different colours (black, blue, red, white, grey, violet, pink, orange, yellow and green) for easy identification. Used for various Ethernet/network applications, all the patch leads in this range are Low Smoke Halogen Free (LSHF) making them suitable for installations in public buildings, data centres, computer or server rooms and generally where fire safety is important.
Patch leads are critical to the operation of data networks that require high-speed data transmission and bandwidths. Connecting two electrical devices for signal transmission, these are typically used in network applications to ‘patch’ a signal from one router or switch to another, in bays, racks or multiple computers and devices.
Both Cat 6 & Cat 6A patch leads can support high-speed data rates of up to 10Gbps. Cat 6 supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-T and 1000BASE-T gigabit ethernet standards with frequencies up to 250MHz. Cat 6A is able to provide twice the maximum bandwidth and maintain higher transmission speeds over longer distances. Suitable for Power over Ethernet (PoE+).
All of our patch leads feature a latch protector and flush moulded boot for strain relief and to prevent the RJ45 plug from coming loose. Unlike most data and networking cables used over longer distances, these patch cables use stranded plain copper conductors (Cat 6 - 24AWG & Cat 6A - 26AWG) for optimum performance, while maintaining flexibility. This can be very important when installing in racking and where space is limited.
The Cat 6A range of patch leads use an overall wire braid, individually screened pairs and a shielded RJ45 plug to prevent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), thus minimising crosstalk from other neighbouring cables and electrical equipment.
