Leviton has introducednew 24AWG Cat 6 U/UTP Cables in EuroClass Dca, Cca, and B2ca fire ratings, adding to the company’s extensive selection of Category 6 cabling systems. The cablescombined with Leviton Atlas-X1™ and eXtreme™connectivity, providea complete end-to-end system from a single provider.
IT network managers and installers are both facing the need for faster deployment of new systems, in tighter spaces, with less environmental impact, without sacrificing quality and reliability.
The new 24AWG Cat 6 U/UTP cables address these needs. The cableshave a small diameterwhich allows for improved air flow in cable trays and conduits. They have been designed without a central cross filler, delivering environmental benefits through reduced plastic in the design andgiving the cables greater flexibility and allowing installers to achieve faster terminations. A better bend radius also reduces the stress the cable experiences as it engages with horizontal and vertical cable management.
The higher EuroClass ratings provide customers with the best level of fire protection available onthe market. Using higher EuroClass cabling provides both better protection of buildings and personnel in case of emergencies. It also enables greater uniformity for managers responsible for facilities in multiple countries with differing EuroClass requirements.
The new cables meet all Category 6 requirements and are tested for use with Power over Ethernet applications (PoE) up to 100 watts. All Leviton cables are third-party certified as meeting or exceeding component and channel performance standards. Leviton systems are all backed by 25-year system warranty to protect investment.
“We are proud to introduce our new range of 24AWG Cat 6 UTP cables, offering our customers greater flexibility and accelerated deployment of their Cat 6 networks, while also minimizing carbon footprint,” said Jonathan Dunbar, Senior Product Manager for Leviton.
Leviton cable is manufactured in the UK, and the Atlas-X1 and eXtreme connectivity is manufactured in the US. The LevitonUK manufacturing site is the world’s first network infrastructure supplier to achieve carbon neutral status in accordance with PAS2060.
