6A UTP BLADEPATCH®
Combine the BladePatch with Siemon’s Z-MAX® modules, patch panels and cable for
a complete category 6A channel solution, meeting or exceeding all 10GBASE-T
requirements including alien crosstalk. The 6A UTP cabling system delivers
unparalleled network performance today and supports multi-gigabit applications.
These cords are also backwards compatible with lower category connecting
hardware.
Ideal for today’s high-density
data center applications
and blade servers
6A cords feature dual jacket
construction for excellent alien
crosstalk performance
Push-pull design eliminates
external thumb latch which
can snag and break
Backwards compatible — for use with category 5e/class D
and category 6/class E systems
Smaller inner cable diameter improves
bend radius and flexibility
RJ-45 patch cord with revolutionary patent-pending push-pull latch design
for easy access and removal in high density patching environments
Low profile boot design optimizes side-stackability of patch
cords and allows use in even the most dense equipment
Eliminates need to defeat latch used
in standard modular plug designs
Fits within any standard RJ45 opening
Simply push the boot forward to
latch into the outlet and pull back to
release
The push-pull design enables easy
access and removal via the boot in
tight-fitting areas
