Siemon Adds New 10Gb/s MC© Patch Cord to its 10G 6A™ F/UTP Line of Network Cabling Solutions

New screened RJ45 patch cords feature removable colour-coding clip and ultra-slim boot with "cantilevered" latch protection for high density environments.

Siemon announces the next generation of their popular category 10G 6A F/UTP (screened) MC patch cord. These new 10Gb/s capable, RJ45-style cords feature a unique colour-coding clip feature. Available in a variety of colours, these snap on clips can be added or removed while the plug is inserted or disengaged, allowing greater flexibility in patch field identification and management.

Siemon's 10G 6A F/UTP MC cords feature an ultra-slim boot, allowing tight side-stackability in high density patching environments such as blade servers. The boot provides an integrated "cantilevered" latch protection feature that not only limits snagging when removing cords, but also allows the latch to be operated from further back on the plug. This allows easier installation and removal of the cords in high density switches and patch panels.

The redesigned plug also features an enhanced strain relief boot that ensures proper bend radius while maximizing flexibility and ensuring excellent boot retention. This robust feature, coupled with Siemon's patented cross-pair metallic isolator and 360 degree crimp, maintains cable pair geometry and eliminates deformation, resulting in higher transmission performance.

As part of a 10G 6A F/UTP end-to-end channel, Siemon's new MC cords meet or exceed all 10GBASE-T standard requirements, including all alien crosstalk parameters.

All Siemon MC patch cords are compatible with standards-based RJ45 outlets and meet FCC68.500 and IEC 60603-7 specifications, ensuring reliability and long-term resistance to humidity-based corrosion, extreme temperatures and airborne contaminants. This 100% transmission-tested patch cord is also compatible with both T568A and T568B wiring schemes which allows it to accommodate all Ethernet applications.
