New Kordz CAT6A Network Patch Cords at ISE — AV.technology
The new PRS Series CAT6A Network Patch Cord from Kordz is a slim-profile, high performance copper patch cord which provides a strong, reliable connection for high-bandwidth audio-visual (AV) and smart home installations.
“On many projects, the network patch cord connection can be a common source of failure and massive frustration for professional home integrators,” comments James Chen, Managing Director and head of Engineering at Kordz. “Connectivity Assured is the principle that underpins the design and manufacture of every Kordz product. This new CAT6A Network Patch Cord is a great example of this commitment in practice as our patent pending design dramatically reduces any issues with the RJ45 latching tab breaking or coming free under stress.”
On display for the first time at ISE 2020, the new Kordz PRS Series CAT6A Network Patch Cord is a stranded 28 American Wire Gauge (AWG) U/FTP Category 6A shielded cable, suitable for 10 Gbps and POE++ rated networks. Kordz has custom-designed the RJ45 connector with a robust, anti-corrosion gold plated material. The result is a more secure latching tab with a 15.2mm cable bend radius. The tab itself is rated to 2,000+ 180-degree bend cycles which will minimise the risk of connector failure, help create a tidier AV rack and save installation time and cost for integrators. The 28AWG oxygen free copper conductors and solid extrusion also offer maximum twist protection for greater cord flexibility and signal integrity.
In addition, this Network Patch Cord has the thinnest and most flexible profile on the market, making installation faster and easier whilst still fully complying with the strict CAT6A ANSI/TIA 568.2-D standard. The cable’s 4.8mm diameter gives it a 40% reduction in area size when compared to traditional 26AWG CAT6A network patch cords. Every cable in the range is available in a choice of lengths up to 30m. In fact, installers can select from 16 different lengths, beginning at 15cm, to suit multiple project requirements with every Kordz PRS Series CAT6A Network Patch Cord up to 10m supplied with its own component test report. This gives confidence to integrators, ensures optimum performance and maximises time savings on site still further.
