This line of Cat. 6 and Cat. 6a slim-line Ethernet patch cables for high-density patching applications features plenum-rated cable with a maximum temperature rating of 105 °C. The cables have a patent-pending, spline-free design that provides a reduced diameter profile, making them suitable for applications that require a smaller, more flexible cable. The low-profile short boot design saves additional space on patch panels, allowing for a clean, organized installation. These CMP-rated cables meet the most stringent building burn and smoke codes. The stranded conductor design is more flexible than a standard solid conductor horizontal cable.
