Product Description

Hubbell XCELERATOR Cat6 jacks

High performance, easy to install Cat6 jacks

Hubbell XCELERATOR Cat6 jacks offer high performance and are easy to lace and quick to install with the Hubbell 1-Punch tool. These Cat6 Jacks are third-party verified to ensure they are Category 6 compliant and have undergone extreme DTE power testing to 4x the standard handling. Exceeding the IEEE PoE standard without failure or substantial increase in temperature ensures these Cat6 jacks can meet the demands of applications such as: DTE power applications, IEEE 802.3, real-time video to desktop and VoIP.

They are centre balanced to Category 6 plug specifications and have positive PSACR beyond 300Mhz (channel). They are also FCC compliant and can handle 2000+ mating cycles. Backwardly compatible to Category 3, 5 and 5e, the Hubbell XCELERATOR Cat6 Jack has IDC pair splitting towers that enable lacing with minimum disruption to cable twist, and whilst compatible with standard 110 termination tools, optimum installation is achieved using the Hubbell 1-Punch tool. This tool delivers the fastest termination within the structured cabling industry, by punching down and trimming all four pairs consistently in one punch. The innovative combination of these jacks with the 1-Punch tool reduces termination time by 75%.

Available in a range of colours (Black & White as standard stock with others available to order), their standard HPW keystone design enables mounting in rear-loading plates, front-loading modules and frames.
