Hubbell Low Diameter Patch Cords for Cat6 and Cat6A Applications
Hubbell HCL patch cords are a range of low diameter patch cords that have been designed for Cat6 and Cat6A applications. They have been designed to reduce cable congestion associated with high density installations in data centres and enterprise-level IT environments, wall mount enclosures and patching panels. As a result, these patch cords greatly improve airflow, cooling and cord management.
The HCL low diameter patch cords are designed to exceed TIA component limits for NEXT and Return Loss. They utilise #28AWG stranded conductors that are extremely flexible and easy to manage. This gauge is below current TIA-568 specifications and, as a result, these patch cords have an increased de-rating factors and limitations on PoE applications (see Application Notes tab).
An additional benefit in their low diameter improving cable management and airflow is the improvement in lowering switch operating temperatures.
