In addition, the system features enhanced alien crosstalk mitigation and insertion loss that, according to Molex, surpasses all unshielded systems.

The PowerCat 6A end-to-end solution consists of straight and angled Category 6A shielded patch panels, cable, patch cords, and the new die-cast Datagate shielded 6A jack. The 24- and 48-port 6A shielded patch panels are supplied with rear cable management trays for cable strain relief and organization, and the angled panel provides enhanced port access, minimizing patch cord bend radius while eliminating the need for horizontal cable rack managers.

The die-cast zinc alloy body housing of the Datagate jack protects against EMI and features a proprietary spring-loaded shutter that protects from dust and contaminants as well as ejects improperly seated patch cords. The Datagate shielded jack has been designed for high-speed data transmissions, with typical applications including data centres, storage area networks, server farms, and riser backbones.
