L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced that it has introduced a new line of Ethernet cable assemblies that feature plenum-rated cable with a maximum temperature rating of +105°C.
L-com's new Cat 6 and Cat 6a slim-line Ethernet patch cables are billed as an ideal solution for high density patching applications. The cable's patent-pending, spline-free design provides a reduced diameter profile, geared for applications that require a smaller, more flexible cable.
Further, L-com notes that the cables' low-profile, short boot design saves additional space on patch panels allowing for a clean organized installation. These CMP (plenum)-rated cables meet the most stringent of building burn and smoke codes.
The company says the new cables' stranded conductor design is considerably more flexible than a standard, solid-conductor, horizontal cable, and offers a greater flex life. A robust temperature range of -20°C to +105°C allows these cables to be used in higher temperature applications where standard patch cords would fail.
“Our new plenum-rated cable assemblies comply with stringent building codes by utilizing plenum-rated jackets. They limit the burn time and burn length compared to PVC cables and offer a wide operating temperature range for use in applications where extreme heat is present,” said Dustin Guttadauro, Product Manager at L-com.
In addition to these new cable assemblies, L-com also offers Cat6 and Cat6a plenum-rated bulk cable that is rated to +105°C.
The new plenum-rated Ethernet cables and bulk cable are in stock at L-com and available for immediate shipment.
