CABLExpress, a manufacturer of high-performance data center connectivity products, announces the addition of a mini Category 6 (CAT6) copper trunk to its cabling product set. With a significant reduction in diameter, the mini copper trunk decreases cabling congestion and allows for increased airflow in the data center.
The mini CAT6 copper trunk bundle has an outer diameter of 0.62 inches, down from its original size of 1.2 inches. The copper trunk breakout legs have a diameter of 0.148 inches, reduced from 0.29 inches.
This product will be very beneficial for those looking to create a well-designed structured cabling system that maximizes space in the data center, said Peter Belyea, president of CABLExpress. While the use of fiber cabling has been steadily increasing to keep up with faster network speeds, copper cabling is still a main component in many data center platforms. We’re excited to offer a copper trunking solution that provides the high performance of CAT6 with the manageability of a slimmer design.
The CABLExpress mini CAT6 copper trunk features:
- Options for even or staggered breakouts to reduce excess cable
- Customizable trunk and breakout lengths
- Design that directly integrates with the recommended TIA-942 structured cabling standard
- Factory-terminated and pre-tested cabling to allow simple plug-and-play installation
The mini CAT6 is also available as a patch cord.
