Copper Patch Cord, Category 6, Red Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) Cable, 2 Meters, Bulk Packaged. Exceeds ANSI/TIA-568-C.2 Category 6 and ISO 11801 Class E standards. Meets requirements of IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at for PoE applications. Each patch cord is 100 percent performance tested and wired T568B. Constructed of Category 6, 24 AWG UTP stranded cable and TX6 PLUS Modular Plugs; plug contacts plated with 50 microinches of gold for superior performance. Plug meets all applicable ANSI/TIA/EIA-968-A requirements and exceeds IEC 60603-7 specifications. Slender strain relief boot provides easy access in high density applications. Plug uses an integral pair manager to optimize performance and consistency by reducing untwisting of conductors within the plug. Perform in center of TIA/EIA component range, ensuring interoperability and excellent performance. Labels on patch cords provide identification of performance level, length, and quality control number. Patented tangle-free latch prevents snags and provides easy release, saving time on frequent moves, adds, and changes. Optional patch cord color bands snap on and off individual patch cables offering endless color-coding options. Optional RJ45 plug lock-in device blocks unauthorized removal of cable, IP phone, other networking equipment, or critical connection. Third party tested for Category 6 component compliance.
