Siemon launches new SkinnyPatch modular patch cords
Smaller diameter improves airflow, accessibility, routing and space savings in tight spaces
Siemon, a provider of network infrastructure solutions, has launched new SkinnyPatch 6 modular patch cords in the Middle East that deliver category 6 performance with a reduced diameter for improved pathway fill, airflow and increased flexibility in high density patching areas.
With a 28 AWG stranded copper construction that enables a smaller cable diameter of just 4.0 mm (0.16 inches), SkinnyPatch 6 modular patch cords offer a significantly tighter bend radius for easier cable routing and enhanced cable management to facilitate moves, adds and changes in tight spaces. The overall smaller diameter provides pathway savings in racks and cabinets whilst maximising airflow for improved equipment reliability.
“Whilst the use of 28 AWG patch cords requires users to be aware of slightly shorter channel reach, airflow is much more of a concern than length in today’s data centres and telecommunications spaces where high density patching areas are commonplace,” says Narender Vasandani, technical manager MECA at Siemon. “Our new SkinnyPatch 6 modular patch cords provide the same exceptional category 6 performance that our customers have come to expect from Siemon, whilst offering them a smaller diameter to improve airflow, accessibility, routing and space savings in these tighter spaces.”
SkinnyPatch 6 modular patch cords exceed ISO/IEC 11801:2002 and ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 performance standards as confirmed by Intertek, an independent third party test lab. SkinnyPatch 6 plug technology features Siemon’s patented cross pair isolator for enhanced NEXT performance and 360-degree crimp for plug-to-cable strain relief.
