Comtran Announces Downsized Cat 6 28 AWG Patch Cable

Attleboro, MA – Comtran Cable, a North American manufacturer of standard and ruggedized data cables, announces the introduction of Cat 6 28 AWG Patch cable that is nearly 50% smaller than standard Cat 6 patch cable. This breakthrough in cable diameter creates a number of advantages for contractors and installers.

Compared to a standard Cat 6 Patch cable, Cat 6 28 AWG is nearly half the size with a reduced diameter of .145”. This size reduction allows twice the amount of space for more cables to be routed through pathways. With more space in the pathway, there is increased airflow and cooling. “This cable is the perfect solution for those tight squeeze environments that require Cat 6 electrical performance plus flexibility,” says General Manager Joe Barry. “Data center managers will appreciate how much more free air space will be created allowing increased air flow and reduced cooling costs.”

The new Category 6 28 AWG Patch cable exceeds all ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 Category 6 standards for NEXT and RL and also features an attenuation de-rating factor of 1.9. Its tight bend radius simplifies installation in high volume areas while the cable’s smaller size provides improved flexibility, which eases overall cable management.
